Well, we got it! The permit from the Fire Marshall is in hand. When we met with our contractor in April of last year and he gave us time estimated he said the one thing that could slow us down was the permit from the FM - that that is where we could most likely face problems. Well it was in October that I indicated we had hit a snag here but hoped it would only be a small one - OCTOBER people! That was 4 to 5 months ago! AAAARRRGGGGGG.
Sorry I had to get that out of my system :). Great news. We have the permit. Now we have a couple of HOPEFULLY real small county permits and we can get moving. Our understanding is that once we have this permit the others are pretty much academic.
We are thankful for all who have been so faithful to pray about this matter and to those who have worked so diligently to make it happen. Please continue to pray for us.
