Wow.. what an inviting time.  My landlord, the city zoning dept. and the fire 
department.  They told me I didn't need two entrances, move the EXIT sign.  
They told me I had to have handles not traditonal, so that all can grab it to 
get inside.  I have to move one sink from the women's room to the utility 
closet.  That's good.. it's my cleaning sink.  I have to have one for hands 
too.  While I am not making food there, I maybe required to have a sink with 
three tubs in it so you can wash, rinse, and disinfect things.  In my case, 
he coffee pots would have to be kept up.. fine with me.  Where to find one 
such sink?  Good question.. ;-)

We had a great time talking about what was needed, how much of it the landlord 
would take care of, and any other questions we had.  They told me I could 
store things in my storage room but had to have a divider in the middle so I 
didn't walk to that side of the room.. dangerous as there's a gas water heater 
on the other side.  I will figure it out. 

I like team playing.. I want this to happen very much.
