So, today the permit applications were handed in to Newfield Borough. The inspector immediately noticed that he also needed the "cubes", so I called the architect and that information is on the way. Nice feeling. I am beginning to see that this may actually get started.
If it goes as the building inspector thinks -- since he says "they" are not busy, I may have permits in hand next Tuesday. Of course, I am not that optimistic. The various ones are put out to "subs" because the inspector himself is not versed in all the categories, so each has to be looked over and okayed by a different person.
