Fire Suppression... Or Financial Oppression?
Masha'Allah we have finally figured out about 90% of the work that needs to be done with the daycare. Now I have one ginormous hurdle remaining... The fire code. Ahhhh, the fire code. Well, it seems that we are the first daycare in WY to have to retrofit a building to meet a new code for daycares and schools. No one knows what this code is, no one has enforced this code before. All the other daycares have been grandfathered in. ** SIGH**
So, right now I don't know what this is going to cost me or how long it will take to install. I have to be up and open by the June though... Or I have to renew my conditional use. So, keep us in your dua because we need it!LOL
I am a mother to four wonderful kids and the wife to one wonderful Egyptian! We live in a small town in the Midwest and work in our small businesses. I am also a Waldorf preschool teacher and childcare provider, a backyard chicken lady, a part time homeschooler, and a generally crunchy mama (think hijabi in birks).
