Heres the septic approval from the Board of Health
This is for all the doubters
who told us we couldnt get it

If you look closely they use the word maybe
in describing wheter its sufficient
Its like Bueracratic Mad Libs

Board of Idiots is more like it

Hi Everybody

So much has happened in the las few weeks

Dick completed the septic field
which wasnt with out its own drama

When the Board of Health came to the site to inspect the work
the drawings they had from the engineer were different from the ones we built off of
meaning the engineer sent us drawings then later revised them and sent them to the B of H
and not to us.
Luckily oly a small change had to be made
ANd then last Thusday we recieved th approvala from the Bof H
This was huge
We were really excited
All during he 2 years we waited before we built was because we didnt think we could do something that would eventuallly be approved.
And then after all that they build it wrong.

Oh brother
anyway thats all in the past
so come on over and use our toilet

Martin was here for a few days and we built a wall in the basement and put up the railing
Were trying to resolve all the safety issues like stairs and handrails

So all seems on track for us to move in Sept 1st

Django loves his bedroom
