A thousand paper cuts | Permits

What a day! I got so much done on moving forward with the build.  Super productive!

I managed to make contact with the town, county and state government all in one day.

I got the septic permit from Tompkins County.  I got an engineer from the NY Department of Transportation to visit our address and review the location of our driveway. I got a large portion of the building permit paperwork submitted (there’s a lot) and started a dialogue with the town of Danby codes official.

Also, I got the revised final floor plan from Earthship Biotecture.


Shout out to those of you collecting recyclables, thank you again! Please let me know if you need me to come by to pick them up.  You’re the best!
