Time to Redefine our Lives in Oregon

Building Permit Time

ALRIGHT!!!  We’ve got our plans in hand, the permits filled out and ready to submit on Monday!!  I’m pretty sure that the building permit process will go pretty smoothly…..check back with me in a week or so..HAHAHA.  We’ve also got a septic eval. coming up this week.  Actually though, because we are county, and not city we have a few less restrictions in some of the nitty gritty stuff, and that seems to be the case with what we have had to file so far.  So, let’s keep our fingers crossed, and throw up a few words to the man upstairs for a smooth process.  :oD

Anyway, to put it lightly….ADAIR Homes did an AWESOME job in getting all of our plans and building permits together.  They handled the whole process, handed us the whole package, and all I have to do now is submit it to the building department….along with a check, of course.   That’s one huge headache that we don’t have to deal with.  Charlie, is our go-to-guy who has handled things for us from the very first contact.  In fact, the entire office team in Aurora has been really wonderful.  I highly recommend these guys and gals.

The big question is….how are four cats, two dogs, and 3-4 grown people going to live in a trailer for the months of demolition and construction?Hmmmmm…….stay tuned for the next exciting episode!!

This big guy cracks me up!!

  1. Wow Tami!! I am so impressed…you & Tony are incredible to move everything to Oregon after growing up here. You go girl!!!


    • Kathy…..it took us 6 years to finally move. It was getting to the point of “are we” or “aren’t we” so we did!! Our house in Mountain View is going on the market on Monday…..truly it is kind of sad. That is the only house my kids have known….until now! :o)


  2. I’m glad it is all falling into place, Tami! You will definitely be squished in that trailer… but I know a family who lived like that for five years before all their permits, etc. were approved, so you will have it better than them. I love your updates… keep them coming! BTW, I guess you won’t be making it down for the 30th reunion, then, huh?
