    Well, It only took me 10 years to reach this point. They are finishing up the electrical work now, the asphalt and approach are scheduled for next week. The building is 3250 sq. ft. and has an office and bathroom.

    The project started with buying the piece of land, and several months of seeking approval from the city for permits etc. I eventually had to hire a company which specializes in obtaining building permits. The lot is zoned industrial, and is located a few blocks away from my dump site.

    We had to do a septic tank and drill a water well.

    How much? Lots.
