Anniversary

It's been a year since construction ostensibly started.  One year ago, a temporary power pole was put up in anticipation of a building permit.  Although we didn't need a variance, the project had been in review by the City of Minneapolis for a few weeks by then.  As it turns out, we wouldn't have our building permit until July 20.  It was the first of several unexpected delays on the project.

We kept the small conifer behind the pole, and transplanted the rest.  The fence was salvaged and is now part of the screened porch.

The delays continue as we await the certificate of occupancy.  The closing is contingent on the garage roof completion.  In the meantime, we are limbo, waiting.
