Building is underway

In anticipation of receiving our permit we had a inaugral beer, on what would be the deck, with our present nieghbors/friends Todd and Loralee. We took the dogs, four of them, a,few beer and a patio umbrella and sat in area that would at some point be the house and enjoyed the afternoon and the view. I'm sure the people driving by thought we were an odd site but we had a great time.

 

Our permit finally arrived last friday at a cost of approx $3700. Ouch, i was expecting about $2000 - $2500. We dug the hole yesterday and today and hope to be framing in the footings the first part of next week. Our plan is to be at lock up stage by the end of August, so it will be interesting to see how close we get. Normally here the summers are dry, so the weather shouldn't hold us up. An interesting fact about the Cowichan Valley, in the five months from May to the end of September we get less than half the rain they do in Regina, Sask. Our average rainfall is a total of 143mm where as Regina has 300mm. Bonnyville Alberta has 322mm. I'll just let that sit awhile.

 

Should be an interesting summer.
