It took several months but after plans, revisions and submissions to the city we finally have our permits!
The City of Portland is in the middle of a remodel/construction boom, so the permit office is backed-up with more work than they can handle. It does not matter how simple your plans are, or how big your project is, everyone is having to hurry-up and wait. Luckily, our patience prevailed and the permits were issued to begin work on this remodel this week.
As soon as the permits were in-hand, the General Contractor, Tod Phillips, and his team started demolition. Here are a couple of images we captured while taking the initial tour of the deconstructed site.
