So, I got this letter in the mail this weekend.
I knew our permit was about to expire, but this put the pressure on. But really, now that the sink is in, there are only a few projects to complete before I can call for final inspection:
- Roof on door overhang
- Step below door
- Overhang soffit
- Exterior light
- Crawl space access in pantry
- Bring house up to fire code (read: add 400 smoke detectors)
I installed all of the tongue and groove cladding on the underside of the overhang
Built a step below the door.
And installed the exterior light.
I had a minor panic attack when the brad nailer/air compressor I was using for the soffit cladding tripped the GFCI interrupter without me noticing, and the lights inside/outside stopped working. I thought I’d hit a wire with a nail as I was installing the last few pieces of siding, and I had a mild panic attack imagining having to remove the drywall to replace it.
But, when I regained my senses, I just hit the reset button, and like magic, we’re one step closer to being finished.
Look at that craftsman charm.
