Yesterday was a productive day here in the ongoing struggle that is Lunch-Bags Kitchen Construction: A plate glass window that had been broken since we bought the building in June was repaired. Hamilton Building Dept. Inspection passed our plumbing rough-in. Interestingly, even the inspector agreed with us that the installation of a grease interceptor - and the added expense - was overkill for a shop like ours that doesn't even prepare hot food! He seems to share our opinion concerning the bureaucrats at City Hall that insisted we have one. We were just about to celebrate our move closer to completion when we got notice from a tenant in one of our rental properties that the record 70 mm of rain the night before might have something to do with the water seeping into her ceiling.... errrrr.
We ended the day with a sip of lovely Niagara red wine that Ellen purchased to toast the successful Building inspection but became a solace for one more leak in the HMCS Property Ownership.
