Today was a good day. We received approval from our friends at the county health department. They put a nice big stamp saying we can move on to the next square. That means that tomorrow morning I'll shuttle the plans and a stack of reports over to the building department. Given the state of the economy, I'm guessing not a lot of people are applying for building permits so hopefully we'll get through this next step in a couple weeks. Then the fun begins. There will be something very satisfying about seeing the actual construction begin. Right now, we have a bunch of nice ideas on paper. I want to get in there and cut into the floor and pour concrete...fun stuff like that!
Stay tuned for an upcoming post about Farley's history (we're celebrating our 20th anniversary on St. Patrick's Day).
