Wow. I just got hit with an anxiety attack. I was looking at the City of Minneapolis site on permits and stuff, and I found a little thing that basically says that if you get a permit and don't finish the work by the expiration, the city will fine you $25.00 a day until the work is completed, or they will hire contractors to finish the work at your expense.
Big hairy shitballs.
My due date is October 7th. That's less than two months. I don't even have the foundation walls done yet. And there's no way I will be able to afford to buy the rest of the materials to complete the structure by then.
I have a call into the planning office to see if there is a possibility of getting an extension for the unforseen circumstances.
I ended up having to go for a walk around the building to calm down. Prior to that I went into brain lock, and I lost about 15 minutes of staring-at-the-screen.
I can only complete the work as fast as I can manage it. I can't afford to pay someone to do it. Can't do the home improvement loan because the title is screwed up. Can't refinance for the same reason.
Guess I'll be laying bricks tonight.
