Is It Really This Simple?

I made some phone calls yesterday about opening a home-based bakery (I am in NC) and I couldn't believe that it is as simple as it is. Is it just in Sampson County? The only thing I had to do was contact the Dept. of Ag. to get regulations and the number to schedule an inspection. The only thing the Zoning board told me was that I could not have customers come to my place of residence and I couldn't advertise my house as the location for my business.

I can't wait to start the paperwork for registering my business name and applying for a tax ID (my husband will do all this since he has had a business previously). I will schedule my inspection as soon as my new dishwasher is installed and I get a new pantry!

Oh yeah! I also have to call my insurance company to see what need's to be added to my homeowner's insurance policy.

NC residents are among the lucky few!

I'm in NC as well, but it's not as simple for me since I live in an apartment and I have indoor pets. One of our dogs is my son's therapy dog, so we're not getting rid of the pets anytime soon.

I'd love to have a house where we could put in a large "storage building" and set up as my kitchen and decorating area. I'd love to have a place to go and hide from everyone! icon_smile.gif I'm picturing the really big ones you see displayed at Lowe's and Home Depot, 2 story for storage. I'd be in heaven!
