What has been such a great summer is starting to make me pull my hair out. By now, we had hoped to be elbow-deep in our new range/pump house by now with sights set on completing our irrigation upgrade by fall. As always seems to happen, small changes, permits, and people just being busy has thrown a couple of delays into our process. Rest assured, we are still on-track and moving forward.
As I spoke of awhile back, the unexpected yield on well #2 demanded we change the type and horsepower of our well pumps. This change required some minor re-engineering and tweaks to the new electrical infrastructure to accommodate the higher horsepower. Being as our range house is a commercial structure, this electrical information was required to submit for our county building permit, which required our zoning permit, which blah blah blah blah. In other words, there hasn't been any mistakes, it's just taken a little longer to get all the necessary paperwork in place.
As of today, everything is moving forward - more or less. The building permit is "pending" and we should have it in our hands soon. The problem we are running into is that our masonry contractor has other work scheduled for late August. Since our project was scheduled to take place late July/Early August, we are running out of time. We are working diligently to ensure there are no further delays, but time will tell. I will keep everyone posted.
