Stair-elluah Chorus

Great news, folks! So, when I mentioned that we failed our building inspection I also mentioned having to rebuild our stairs. Well, turns out we don’t have to! Praise the Lord! Ryan and I kept working on plans to redo the stairs, but it was just a smidge to big in all directions.

Luckily, our city has a home inspection system that allows you to log in online and see what the inspectors wrote. We were able to log in and see exactly what our inspector said about our home. Pretty sweet, right?

One of her notes was, “Decide if rebuilding the stairs.”

Um…DECIDE?! For real?! We can make that decision?!?! YOU ARE NOT MANDATING THAT WE REBUILD OUR STAIRS IS WHAT I THINK THAT SAYS!

So, we called our building inspector the next day and talked to her about how our plans weren’t fitting as well as we hoped. She agreed to let us keep the stairs as is as long as we removed the closet or a portion of the closet to allow for proper head clearance. DEAL!!!

We have been working this week to take out a portion of the closet, and we are THRILLED to be removing a closet instead of removing a closet AND building new stairs. It is a huge relief. HUGE!

Any good news for you this new year? Ours if off to a pretty good start! 🙂

Peace.

  1. Great news Brittney! That stair project would have made me nuts. I get too overwhelmed over stuff like that sometimes. Woo Hoo! I know you’re both happy. So cool that you can log in and read the report online. Sometimes technology really rocks!
