The guy from the city came and found several problems right away. The tub in the 2nd bath must have a stopper and overflow drain (it's there but covered). Oops. The sinks and shower in the master bath are plumbed backwards (I knew the shower, but not the sinks). Oops. Then he said something like "Are you the owner and occupant? Are you going to fix these?" I said yes, and he said he would pass us. Yippee!! Not only is this an important milestone, but it also means that we get another 6 month reprieve on finishing this permit.
To celebrate, I'm posting some before and after pictures of the back of the house. Click images for larger versions.
Taken before we took possession of the house.
Jenn reminds me that the title "After" in incorrect since we are not done with the porch yet. So "current" or "recent" would be better, for now.
