We got a bit of great news — we finally have our building permit! It’s been a long, hard road getting permits from the city, so we were thrilled when we got the okay to pick it up. This was the last step before we could start building the interior of our space.

Of course, when we got there, it was missing a stamp and had been taken back into the system. We spent a good chunk of time scurrying between floors searching for the lost signatures. Finally they decided we were all good and let us stamp the plans! (That’s George above stamping each page).
As we’ve been waiting for this to happen, the construction crew was all ready to go, measuring and planning all of the plumbing:
