Off-grid homesteading in the high desert of Northern Nevada.
What do you do when you’re in the middle of a construction project and learn that your building permit is ready to be picked up?
Why, you drop the tool belt and get your rear down to the building department asap!!!!
And then you come home and have a photo shoot to show your excitement.
For those of you who haven’t been following along, or just forget, it’s been almost exactly six months since we initially turned in our plans to be approved for a building permit.
We haven’t exactly be twiddling our thumbs that whole time, but we really thought we’d be further along than we are by now.
But God had other plans and here we are now, at the beginning of winter and just getting the permit.
But, we have a mudroom to build (the project I was working on today). And a well shed. And then we’ll probably start on the septic system. So we’ll keep busy this winter as weather allows. And come Spring, we’ll break ground on our house!
Now back to our regularly scheduled program… building a mud room!
