Many of my lovely readers have been asking how our renovation is coming along… Well, as with all renovations, we have experienced delays. Major delays. Why? The not so lovely permitting process of Coral Gables’ building and zoning department that the Miami Herald has described as “long maligned as an unfriendly, even hellish place to do business…”
It took us six months, SIX MONTHS! to get our permits for renovation. Have you ever heard of such a thing?? We are not building a skyscraper here, we’re just trying to renovate a 1970’s house that would make The Brady Bunch feel right at home! I won’t go into the gory details, so to put it nicely let’s just say it has been a most unpleasant experience.
The good news is that we FINALLY received our permits, and so over the next few months, I will be posting pictures and updates on the renovation of The Glam Pad. I hope you will follow along! Now, I am off to celebrate with a bit of bubbly!!
