87th Melding

I had just settled down for a long evening’s blog… when Crys said, “Hey, watch the puppy for minute.”  I walked outside.  No puppy.  I whistled.  No puppy.  I found our grown-up boxer all well-behaved sitting with a nervous gleam in her eyes.  But,…

$35M Flags

Oh my.  Long time, no blog.  Lots happening.  Pulled a hammy playing flag football.  I only mention that because I’ve moved 3 times already to get comfortable enough to write 5 sentences.  Getting old is new to me… relatively.  In my head, I’m really…

Noticeable Homagery

Just got word that everything was approved from the Building & Safety notes.  They are waiting on Alternate Means & Methods (AM&M) for the 2nd floor kid’s restrooms and we should be good.  That AM&M will be submitted tomorrow.  Code guy is working on…

Fat Tie Attitude

I had to shovel my driveway and scrape ice off my windows this morning.  Crazy what thin California blood does to your internal thermostat… and your perception of reality.  After a few days of destruction, we got our engineer back in the building today. …

Bronze Collaboration

Congrats to Courtney for the title prize from yesterday.  I owe her In-N-Out… although word on the street is that it’ll be all veggie.  Such a shame.  The 807 in our last title is the new Arizona address.  Once it’s all official with the…

Nutsy Hip Bone

Man, what a busy past few days.  Had a graphics company come out and quote a construction sign to display on the front of Piper.  Normally, our general contractor would just use a sign of his own… but, you know us.  Now, it’s gonna…

60 Foot Bird

It’s official… the Meet & Greet sign-up form is now online.  Just click here for more info and to fill out the form.  We’ll email you a confirmation when your info is received.  Fancy. Signed my very first abatement manifesto today.  I have arrived. …

Love Letters

Yesterday, we submitted our plans for “ding, ding” Round 2 of city plan check.  Still kinda nuts how fast all that went.  If you’d like to write a love letter to the city on our behalf, David Martin, Ron Takiguchi, and Amanda Schachter are…

Bribes & Auto-Pick

Had another solid round of interviews today.  It’s looking pretty great.  Of course you have to sift through submissions to find the diamonds, but we’ve found some diamonds.  One even brought us some dessert snacks… yes, I guess bribes work.  The 2 masters degrees…

Happy Labor Day

Today we will celebrate by laboring on the lighting plan, ADA compliance, elevator hardships, budgets, interviews, and various other laborious plan-check items.  No rest for the crunchy timelines… although I’m about to take a nap… but just for a minute. Hope you all have…
