Our proposed home's "rough grade" inspection (a huge milestone) was approved by the County last week. Lots of work to get to that point- I was the 'laborer' (water boy, root picker and rock thrower) as the professionals took a rough piece of our property and made it solid and level. The estimate was 3 days, however- those 3 turned into a total of 17.
Views include Combs peak (to the north east), Hot Springs Mountain (to the East- the highest mountain in San Diego County), Lake Henshaw (to the South) and the Palomar mountain range to the west. We feel as if we are on top of the world.
First picture reflects stakes for the home, second picture is Tina and Dusty resetting the stakes as the pad moves towards completion, third picture is "Dusty on the Hose" and fourth picture is of the pad ready for "rough grade" inspection. The first, second, and fourth pictures are oriented in a south-west direction.
Next steps include filing for the building permits (the granny flat will be down by the Ag building) and trench work for electrical, water, and the fire hydrants.
