A late Christmas present

We were supposed to have a newly-issued building permit in our hands Friday...but the official who needs to sign the permit decided to cut out early for the holiday weekend. The nerve! Anyway, all that is lacking is said official's John Hancock, which we are told will be given first thing Tuesday morning. Our builder has the excavator lined up for later that week. Wednesday the surveyor will have the corners of the house staked out and Thursday morning we close on the construction loan. So, it looks like we may have a hole in the ground by the end of next week! A great Christmas present even if it is a little late.
