There are a lot of things quietly going on in the background as we make preparations for construction.
We just received comments from the city today regarding our permit application, so we will be going through those with our architect and working out changes and answers for resubmittal.
We have received our supplemental insurance certificate (after much wrangling by Carl Taylor with the insurance company), and will be working with the contractor to merge it with their standard insurance.
Carl has been working on a draft contract for construction, and has managed to retain (pro bono) a lawyer to review it for us.
We will be meeting with the contractor and architect next week to discuss these and other items, and hopefully have a revised estimate to use for a final contract soon.
