Great day! The stars are in alignment regarding all official documents. FINALLY got the word that I have the "go" on the occupancy permit. Now off to zoning for a sign. After breaking the codes on the corporate voice mail I spoke to the phone company and my bank today and got all of the services hooked up for the shop in 2 phone calls and in less than an hour. Frankly I was shocked but tickled to death.
Moved in a load of furniture and fixtures this evening. Tomorrow: assembling the 800 pounds of shelving- wish me luck!
