Ack! I forgot to mention a few details about Monday's visit to Fresno.
Over the weekend, I received a letter from the Health Department requesting a little more information that we had on the plans. It didn't seem like much of a problem; just where the sinks were, the location of the floor drain, and hand sink, etc. But I wanted to find out from them how they wanted the information. So, Monday morning, I talked to them and they just needed the stuff either hand drawn onto the plans or on a 8.5 x 11 paper.
I expected to have to make an appointment later in the week to go over the information but the nice woman was available that afternoon. So we, get into the car and drive down for the appointment at 2:00.
And, 45 minutes later, we walk out of there with their stamp of approval. So we head to City Hall. The Health Department was all we were needed so I figured we'd be able to get a building permit.
The Planning and Development Department of the City was fairly slow when we got there about 3:00 so that was good. But, the sets of plans we had were, well, kinda mixed up. Approval stamps from one agency on one set and only on some of the sheets in the other sets and things like that. But, we got it all straightened out and got the City the two sets of plans with all the appropriate approval stamps they needed.
After a visit to the cashier, we walked out with our permit.
And now you know.....................................
