Our daughter has always had her own room, while our five boys have shared. Granted, it was a big room, but they are getting older and privacy is becoming an issue.
They want bedrooms, and I want all the tools out of my kitchen, so we decided to finally build the garage with the extra bedrooms we'd been planning–from the start. The bedrooms we'd told the septic design lady to allow for.
But this week, we hear from the building department that our blueprints are unacceptable. Our septic system is only big enough for a four bedroom house.
We point out that it's designed for ten people. We only have six children and barring a miracle, we aren't having more. Not that it's any of their business. They measure. They do some figuring. Oh. So it is. But it still isn't big enough for more than four bedrooms.
We can have ten people, but not more than four bedrooms? What? Do that math! And how does more square footage translate into more strain on the septic system?? I'm completely flummoxed. Somebody explain this to me.
Please. Give me just one, just one way this ruling could make any sense.
