This morning we officially submitted our building plans to the city of Philadelphia and applied for building permits for both homes. We are expediting the permitting process and it will most likely take us 3-4 weeks to receive our permits from the city as long as there is nothing major wrong with our plans. The cost to expedite is $540 per house which is a bit painful considering it’s only $100 for the normal base fee. This is more than necessary though as it can take months if not expedited.
The experience at L&I was great, just like when we submitted our zoning application. Arriving as close to the 8:00 AM opening time seems to be the key. I was down there for a maximum of 30 minutes this morning and had time to grab a coffee with the wife on my way home. Nothing like crossing off the biggest item on your to-do list before 9AM!
If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.
There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.
