How long did it take to get a building permit and what did you do for engineering. The project looks more like it will be more like art. Working with ironwood and saw blades. It looks like a very exciting project good luck with your art project. Please post photos as you go. Bob at Sugarloaf Cord Wood built his place from wood around the valley he milled it all then he would have guy come in and grade stamp the lumber they also built doors and hinges. You are lucky to have the time. Good luck drying it in. I miss the old log cabins around the valley this is a welcome addition to the Valley

Millennia’s sorry to tell you that there is no Santa Clause, no Easter Bunny, No Tooth Fairy, Have a great day

I had to provide all our own engineering as County planning folk had no idea how to evaluate a railroad bridge caisson strength "house". We had to acquaint them with ICC 400 building code bible. Then we did all our own in house engineering (Eden Engineering). Basically it is strong enough to be used as a railway trestle bridge.

Took County a year to figure out and approve, and looks like they will be taking our design work as reference for future similar projects.

Well, got the hallway mostly finished, and front closet, floor.

There is a window in the wall to the laundry room, has a mine shaft vibe

Since it is just myself and my wife, things take long, but we really hope we can get dried in before winter hits too bad. Probably be Certificate of Occupancy ready by spring. Then a while to finish all the custom touches and detail bits.

Me too, Sportj. I just received this text. "Your ballot for the 2020 General Election was received and will be counted. Thank you for voting!".

I got a text that my ballot was counted! Wahoo! So anyone else who is waiting (after using the drop boxes) it took exactly one week.

MtnTeach - the ballot boxes aren’t third party. They are official county elections office drop boxes.

Dropped off mines directly at the post office, don't need a 3rd party. Ballottrax worked fine for me!

7:30 a.m. Tues - given to mail lady at Crestline Post Office
8:02 a.m. Wed - notified by ballottrax that my ballot had been received by USPS
1:16 p.m. Wed - notified my ballot had been received by SB Registrar of Voters

USPS worked fine!

I dropped my ballot in the dropbox at the Crestline library a couple of weeks ago, it took about a week for ballot tracker to notify me that my ballot had been received and counted.

Yes, I was so politely informed by the Big Bear Postmaster that putting anything in the box outside is no guarantee it will get processed. They even tried to extend that non-responsibility to the box inside the PO. So basically he was telling me my mail no matter where I put it, will maybe get delivered, depending on how the post office feels that day. Amazing.

USFS: Volunteers this past Saturday covered 488 graffiti tags, took out 5 illegal campfire rings and removed 187 pounds of trash along Deep Creek and Hesperia Falls.

The forest partnered with the @MojaveDesertLT and the US Army Corps of Engineers.

Great work volunteers! 🤝 [Click Here]

Sport, I believe the only couple I asked said 4 days but I'll text them and ask again. All were impressed with the tracking service.

I dod, however, use the indoor drop at the Post Office rather than an outside box.

Official Absentee ballot instructs us to go to SBCountyElections.com. I dropped mine on 10/17, it was received at the SB County registrar on 10/20.

Casadelgado - Did they say how long it took for them to show up as received?

Sportyj
Oct 21 : 03:19pm
Dave - ha ha I don't know why I assumed you dropped them off last Monday! Keep me posted if yours is updated any time soon.

Casadelgado

We have 3 friends who used the drop box at the Library and they all have been received by the tracking. Dropping ours off tomorrow.

We mailed our ballots and got confirmation that they are where they need to be
