Hi everyone! Well, I am taking the plunge!
I've been here on CC a while now, and have been doing cakes for almost a year, and am (hoping) that I am getting better enough at this to become legit........I've read everything I can get my hands on about home inspections, and have talked with a couple of people here from NC about home kitchens, and I think I am ready for this.......I think I am more scared about the actual inspection than anything! I just called Raleigh, and I am scheduled for an inspection on July 10!
So, if you have any tips or advice you could throw my way, I would love it!!!!!
Wish me luck!!!
You should contact your local SCORE office and get hooked up with a mentor before you call for the inspection. The mentor will tell you everything you need to know about doing it from home. My mentor helped point out things I never even though about, like the ZONING commission and how they might not let you work from home... that kind of thing.
I seriously recommend you call SCORE, I called them and that is why I am switching to a location instead of trying to do it at home, it's easier!
Hope that helps
Congrats! I'm excited for you! (and jealous...but I'll get my day one day).
Congrats and good luck!
