So here I sit, the city with charging me with a misdemeanor because I have not completed the exterior of my home in what the city feels is a timely manner.
So, here is the deal. Be careful of how large your DIY project is and that you can complete it in a timely manner. For me, yeah too big.
I chose to add a new entry way and full second story to my home. Along the way I am updating all of the Sewer, water, heating, air conditioning and electrical. I pulled the permit 2006 but did not really begin the project until the spring of 2007.
Sorry you got caught by that but you can't really blame the city. 7 to 8 years of constant construction and/or tarp covered areas become an eyesore that your neighbors should not have to look at.
Think of it as an incentive to concentrate on the exterior and get it done. Possibly consider hiring professional help to make things move faster. The city is not interested in fining you, they are just trying to get you to complete the exterior.
well, the Tyvek guys say after 6 months in the sun, it's shot. I'd say get after it now and be done with it. vinyl siding goes up fast once you get the starter strip on and get after it. get the outside enclosed and repermit the interior work still unfinished.This message has been edited.
