I just want to blow off a little stream...
because I'm NOT building anything yet.

We bought a new house which we are going to remodel, but the wait to get the plans to submit to the City is excruciating. First world problem I know - I am beyond grateful to have the resources to do remodeling in the first place, but I just so want to move INTO this house and its going to be months yet! The city is taking about 6 weeks to review plans...

In the meantime, I am doing as much demolition as I can. Filthy, dusty, strenuous, but at least it's some progress. The yard is completely overgrown and I'm working on pulling out overgrown shrubs planted in places that they shouldn't be, etc.

Thanks I feel better now that I've ranted.

Oh Phyl, I know exactly what you mean. I'm adding a master bed and bath and I started the process in February. First had to apply for a variance to reduce my back property setback, which requires a $500 fee and around 6 weeks. It was approved, then did the planning and permitting process. Permits only took three weeks for approval. Finally the second week of August we started building and now it's going quickly.


Step one, getting rid of a Black Oak and soaking the footings area.


Leo Miner is my builder. Leo is an awesome human and fellow climber. He is the type who has done everything, but doesn't act like it.




First two walls up.


Friday we set the trusses


This week we have three inspections and hope to be in by October. My weekends are busy now, but it is flying by.
Oh and my basement is going to be a perfect climbing gym.

I use to have a company called "Red Tag Construction"-no shit!

I got so tired and frustrated with the County of Santa Cruz Planning Office that I swore I would never, ever get another building permit. Think Treasure of Sierra Madre-"Badge, I don't need no stinkin badge."

SIX WEEKS for permit approval?

You obviously didn't remember to fork over the "expedite fee" did you?

With the end of NPS support, I get to work 32 hours a week for volunteer status. At 11 hours a day I still have 4 days a week for bolt replacement. This was one of the projects I got to do this season. No nails, bolts, screws, or other hardware except for the connections to the concrete pads and a couple metal plates holding the three sections together at the top.

With the completion of the sign project I had to find something else to do. I am now the "park bench guy" At the request of "The Boss" I am repairing park benches. So far I get to place them at locations of my choice. The first one went here at the school. The second at Swan Slab, and the third at Church Bowl Tree. The other ones have been going to less important places.

Wowsa! Some very nice stuff.
Phyl, sorry about your delay. Santa Cruz sometimes takes up to 6 months!

Red Tag....Guido!!!! What did you do....ask for forgiveness (i.e. pay a fine) rather than permission?

Guido - funny!

Justin - that will be so great once it's done! The luxury of a master bed/bath...Glad you are getting close.
Phyl

Edited to say that I am completely comfortable living in a rental house, so I don't have to live through construction in the new space...makes a HUGE difference. I did that once before and six months of a "kitchen" in the garage was not fun.

Good Luck on that home up Boulder Canyon!

We met the realtor this afternoon and started the process. We should be moving in by mid-October! First order of business will be to raise the roof on the garage a couple of feet, wire it, and winterize it.

Congrats Edge! Looks like a great homestead in a great location.

Phylp, sometimes a great tactic is to have your engineer inspect your job in lieu of issued permits and gov't inspections, in essence saying, "to hell with the Building Dept for now". You can then cover up your work in the normal construction process without a tear-out/look-see later on.

He/she issues a letter with engineer's stamp for the County wherein he/she is asserting full compliance etc. This can be submitted to the County/City later on after they have finished wasting your time. For jobs that don't involve significant Planning Dept issues like variances, neighbors and so forth.
