We finally got our building consent! We are off to start building!!
We are getting there with our building consent and we hope to open really soon! We are just doing a little dance with the council and once the music stops - we'll be all go!
Between the building code, council and the fire code... Thank goodness it's raining outside.
Hot cup of Supreme coffee by my side and I'm winning. I've just solved the puzzle that is the layout. The building code recommends separate facilities for staff, as well as male and female... I feel like that's a bit old fashioned and separatist. I think we are all adult enough to deal with the fact that everyone 'spends a penny'. So, uni-sex toilets it is. Problem solved!
We have spent all last week getting ready to submit our resource consent to the council.
Now we can get on with the fun part... the building consent. Anyone who has dealt with the council will know that I am being extremely sarcastic. Last time we did this it almost cost me my sanity and all of my relationships. So hopefully this ship sails smoothly...
We put pen to paper today and signed on the dotted line... exciting!!
