I just wanted to stop by and say, I GOT MY SHED PERMIT! I'm not free and clear yet because it is conditional on a load test of the earth anchors but I have stamped plans and I paid my $375 permit fee so I can go ahead and get the shed delivered. The only thing holding me back now is that I have to wait for the excavator fellow to be available. He said he was going to be busy for 2 weeks and it rained for 3 days last week so I hope I don't have to wait longer than 2 more weeks. Once the site is level I can tell the shed people to deliver it. Then I will need to figure out how to attach the anchors to the shed and how to get them in to the ground. I'm thinking I should rent a jackhammer because me and sledgehammers don't work well together. Then I am supposed to call a geotechnical engineer to come out and test each anchor to see if they can withstand 400 pounds of pull. 400 pounds doesn't seem like a lot to me.
I am thrilled that my plan is moving along. I hope to have more time to work on my mobile home soon but my father is still in the hospital and my mother and niece are still staying with me and probably will for the next 3 weeks. It's getting hot too. This weekend is supposed to reach 90. I'll need to be setting up the window air conditioners soon. I just realized that the window that I used to put the air conditioner in is now a door. Oh well, good thing I have more than one window.
Congrats! I'm so looking forward to watching you transform a shed into a home!

Yaay, whoop whoop
There's a title for your new book: "Daizy and her jackhammer." LOL
Thanks, Lee. The weather is getting hot and I feel like I am running out of time already. Time to re-prioritize my plans.
I agree, Lizzie!
Dave, I think that will be one chapter as well as, Daizy in the desert, Daizy and her shed-house, and Daizy's danger-dogs.
Glad you got your permit! That was quick!
Dobermom, it was quick after all but it sure seemed like it played out in slow motion!
