Permits, inspections and fees (oh, my!)

To get our financing started and contracts complete with HiLine, we needed some information about putting in a new septic (or hooking in to our existing septic). I called the county and DEQ. DEQ said they can tell me nothing without a site visit and evaluation. We must prepare a detailed site map with existing septic, beginning, end, drain field, water source, proposed new home, new septic and drain field. Tank and lines must be uncovered for inspection. All ready by next Thursday or Friday. (The inspector comes every other Thursday and Friday.) In addition, she said we need a zoning authorization letter from the county. I have an application to get started on.

Fees to DEQ and the county are $725 and $125, respectively. (So, it begins!)

Feeling a bit overwhelmed...

I would much rather pick out flooring...
