I'll have to look at my list to be sure, but I think all that stands between me and calling for a final inspection is three exterior lights. I think I will make that call on Monday. It will give me time to double check and tidy up a bit. My loft ladder has not arrived yet. I hope they won't take points off for that. I'll have the engineer's drawing on hand just in case.
Today the water line entering the cabin was insulated and the gas line was bonded. I took the picture before I ran the ground wire. The water spigot had to be extended outside of an eight inch diameter metal duct piece. Inside, the water line was wrapped in a black foam pipe insulation cover and then the whole thing was filled with spray foam. It took a while to get that duct fashioned properly to be a half a pipe against the main girder with flanges for attachment and a full circle of pipe below.
I even took the time today to suck a piece of string through the buried pipe put in for the phone line with the vacuum. If all goes well the utilities will be turned on soon.
Hopefully I will get an occupancy permit on the first try. Getting that permit does not however mean work is finished. Is work ever finished? There are more than a few things to attend to before I can sit back and say,"It is done."
When I am living in Hale Mana though, I won't have to travel back and forth. It will be easier to just get up and tend to things. A little paint here. Stack a few rocks there. Sort through this rubbish pile. Hang a picture there.
The inspector man must enter the realm of Hale Mana. The stage will be set. Let the gods and goddesses of Ku'ulei 'Aina work their magic on the inspector man.
