Scratch the french doors, darn it! Contract bids for converting the garage into a room came in. New city codes and ordinances, which seem to change at the blink of an eye, have jacked up a fairly small project into one royal,expensive headache. Not to mention disappointment.

I could envision those french doors in place of the garage door, and all the light they would let in. Apparently the new codes require an architect to draw up the plans, which then have to be approved, inspected...blah, blah, blah! The architect drawing alone was seven hundred dollars. What are they smoking?

Well, I'm not going to let them defeat me! I spoke to the contractor, the one my daughter and I both liked, and we came up with an alternative I can live with.

More to come later...
