This permit allows us to start using the building immediately. There are still a few days worth of cabinetry, tiling, and carpentry work, as well as the elevator to be approved. Hopefully, this will be completed within the next couple of weeks. Once the community ends our winter retreat we will move into the building and start using it. We still have a significant amount of work to do with regard to landscaping: this wor...
