Just this last week our septic proposal was accepted. We have been working on getting through King County since December of 2006. Now comes the next big wait, submitting for building permits. The rumor is that this process is taking between 4 to 6 months. If the rumors are true (and we are hoping so), that means that we might be building by the end of August! My goal/wish is to have it started by my 30th Birthday (Sept. 2).
