This week, when Sarah comes back from California, we enter the final stages of the permit process. The colonia president has offered to go with us for these next official steps, to help expedite things, and we are ready to head out to UMA, the new government office building.
I am still messing around with the "furniture" and the metal worker is coming in again today or Monday with a bunch of new stuff to install (shelves, cabinets, etc). The cement worker is coming back in today to begin construction on a new wall for the bar area, a new bano and a new bar seating area. This construction will probably take 4-5 days. I figure I might as well keep busy while the permits are getting in order.
I get anxious if I have to just sit around and wait.
The actual work will be finished by my projected opening date of November 3. Not sure if all of the permit stuff will be finished by then... but, like I've said, we will have a party then, no matter what. Mark your calendars.
