What a change in 15 years, huh?
It's official! In order to get past this kerfluffle with the electrical permit, we officially bit the bullet and paid off the mortgage on Friday. Once I have the lien release from the bank, I can go down to the Recorder's office and record a deed that has both properties on it.
According to the head City minion in City Planning, that should be sufficient enough for them to un-suspend our permit. We just have to wait patiently for a couple weeks to get that paperwork. No amount of pleading, whining, etc. would convince the bank to speed up the process. Trust me...I tried!
But no one said we couldn't dig footings and put the array together in the meantime. I only need that permit for the actual electrical connections. *evil laugh* I love it when a plan comes together!
Driving home from the movies Friday night, we drove past the Royals stadium and they were setting off fireworks at the end of the game. I told J. that the fireworks were for us in celebration of no more mortgage payments to the evil bank. We both laughed at the thought of it and pretty soon we were home to a house that all ours.
Woohoo! We've been waiting for this day for a long time...
