Morningside Renovation

Our Journey Through The Renovation Process Of Our Future "Forever Home" In Morningside (Atlanta,GA)


Positive Attitude

Ok, I’m trying to put the developments from the last few days behind me and focus on the big picture; the revised plans have been resubmitted to the City Planning Department so my hope is that it won’t be another 4 week delay.   We need to get this going, our GC hasn’t been very responsive and moving in by June is looking more doubtful – it kills me to see that nothing is happening at the house – it’s just sitting there with nothing be done.

Plans are to be submitted tomorrow, per our GC, so my focus needs to be on the overall objective and trying to keep Julie’s spirits up after all of the recent setbacks and delays.


Yes!! Approval

Our GC has now submitted everything to the city and it is all cleared up – he said that he’ll pick up the plans tomorrow.  Let’s get it going, can’t wait for work to start back up!!


The Power of a Woman

Julie was able to get through to the proper person in the city’s Planning & Zoning department to find out the status of our permit and especially as to why it hasn’t been approved.  Seems that our GC forgot to show the zoning folks that the house will be converted from a duplex to a single family residence.  Who knows but they stated that they told him this on January 11th and have yet to receive the proper documentation.  Frustrating but probably just overlooked, part of the process we’re told.  Fortunately we know the reason and it’s all getting cleared up and we should have the permits pulled very, very soon.
