Despite making progress, we’re still not yet ready to submit plans for building approval in Pebble Beach.
The property came with plans that the city and county had approved, but it was not a shovel-ready project. Our architect and team of engineers have been putting together the “real” detailed plans for building approval.
Big wins: We persuaded the city to allow us to shift the house position on the lot. As a result, we will have more privacy from the neighbors and be more centered on the parcel. Future owners will appreciate the extra yard space and better aesthetic. We are also incorporating the second bedroom suite into the property instead of it being an attached ADU.
Setbacks: Weeds invaded the land and two trees died, suddenly. We must engage an arborist to officially pronounce the trees dead before we can apply for a permit for their removal. When designing the landscape plan, we need to plant two new tree for each one dead tree removed.
While we inch along, the finish line feels like it is shifting further ahead. My hope is that being thoughtful and thorough now will yield positive results. Who knows? Maybe construction costs will decline over time. (Yeah right!)
