Most folks reading the title will be lost, but that's ok, its a lyric from a 90s rap song. No worries, just trying bridge the generational gaps. So,PPP. Pre Paint Prep. Yep just finishing up the garage to spray Three of the four walls. Soon to show the shelves I've built!

Friday, the building inspector came to the site, for what I had hoped to be the visit where I could get the little yellow, officially stamped, piece of paper that is final approval of the construction phase. Those folks that know of the year I've experienced, will know that my luck is just not that good. The experienced inspector had a good look around, made some useful suggestions, and then took out his metal clad,armored notebook and proceeded to check off a long list of items. Until, "Do you have your Site Engineering report, schedule D subset c. Produced only on the Third Tuesday of a leap year?" I frantically start flipping, sorting, and rustling through my paperwork to make it appear that I knew what dialect of English he was speaking. The very last page of the two inch stack of "Official Paper" I discover Engineering Report Schedule D written in the blood of a baby Sasquatch! However, this is not the form needed. No, apparently, this engineering report will need to be transcribed on parchment from the Dead Sea Scrolls.....
Embellishment aside, all that is required for the "Final" is a form with the engineer who approved the building plans, signature. So.. A journey on the paper trail I go.
So instead of a picture of Me grinning, holding a magical piece of paper, you get the Morning picture of the ferry.

Its been a beautiful day up here on island. As such I've been busy. Tomorrow the building inspectors will make a trip to the site to check on progress. I'm truly hoping to get a final sign off on the build. In order to door that, I've had to vapor proof the work shop area due to it being
Below the living space. Also the all metal doors are a requirement. the door to the utility room even has cool self closing hinges. Most of the taping got done a well. So tomorrow will hold much of the same.

Currently, I'm dry walling the garage area. Which is BORING to document. So I'll chat about a mistake in tools I purchased. In the beginning of this project, I believed that I could save some money buy only buying one ladder. Werner, is a quality ladder builder, with many many products. I chose a "multi" function ladder, that could be configured in many different sizes and configurations. However it weighed a fucking ton! This week I finally got sick of moving this sixty pound beast around the worksite.
Sooooooo...... I spent some $'s on a fiberglass ladder. Fantastic, I'll tell ya. Oh, and Construction Moose approves of it too!
