Paperwork

Remember those little pencil drawings of the front porch plan that Mare did a couple of weeks ago, and how we hoped they'd be enough for the Building Inspector?  Well, they weren't.  We really didn't expect them to be, so back to the drawing board we went.  And by "drawing board", I mean the concrete slab of the front porch, where we measured and drew and measured again and tried to anticipate questions and finally came up with four pages for the Building Inspector.

The site plan and the elevations, with the suggestions y'all made:



A framing plan:

And a materials list:

So now we wait for approval of the building permit.

  1. Jayne, your blog has been very educational for those of us who love old houses but don't know a thing about renovations! Can't wait to see your finished porch. Your paperwork is now a part of the history of your sweet home!

    1. Thanks, Lottie! I'm glad Marion drew all that because I had no idea how to do it!

  2. WOW! Mine was infinitely more simplistic. I even wrote on the application: "I am a writer, not an architect." :-)

    1. Mare was irritated because the Building Inspector said he needed so much detail and then when we gave it to him, he didn't approve the permit right away. We're still waiting. Mare said he should've made the drawings on construction paper with crayons. lol
