We met with the planner this afternoon to go over the details of our remodel project before he starts work on the final plans. He also had to knock some holes in the ceiling of the garage to see which direction and what size the beams are there. He said he sould have the plans done in around 2 weeks and then hand them off for the structural analysis, which should also take around 2 weeks. He thinks it can all get done in 4 weeks, but said to plan on it being 4-6 weeks. He will also go to the city and get the approval for the permits once the plans are complete. In the meantime, we will be very busy clearing out the garage and the bonus room.
