Who would have thought that small, microscopic, tiny fibers could cause such BIG concerns…but that is exactly what they have been doing to us this past week. I’m talking about the dreaded word……..AASSSSBBBESSSTTTOSSSSS…asbestos!! Before the demo / excavator could get moving with his end of things, we had to get the little old house tested so that he would have paperwork to show the guys at the dump. Today we got the word……………….it turned out really GREAT!!! Basically, the test went something like this…..NOT DETECTED, NOT DETECTED, NOT DETECTED, NOT DETECTED……!!!! Needless to say, Tony and I are VERY HAPPY!!
We also found out today that we may need a demolition permit for the little old house. Another trip to the county planning department….sure, why not.
So items on our “to do” list are slowly ticking away…..and so are the days of sunny dry weather. I’m still stressed that we haven’t broken ground yet, but I know it will happen soon. Tony has been praying, seriously praying, for the weather to hold out until we get the walls up and roof on before we start seeing the rain…he feels pretty confident….I’m clinging to that!! :o)
