Our temp fence has been removed. We don’t even have a date for PCI yet. Is it normal to remove it so soon? They are hoping to do PCI next…

Thanks, I thought it had to be wrong. Do you know how deep they should be or where I can find that info to send to my SS.

Does anyone know if there are guidelines on how deep pipes should be? There are a few around our house that are almost above ground and in areas that will…

Interested to see what they say. They are supposed to pay it. We got a water bill for our block, the usage was only around $11 so we just paid…

I think a lot of it depends on your BC, I’ve seen some people have changes made for no fee and others with huge fees. We changed our stone benches…

So you have already signed your contract? Any changes after the contract is signed come with an admin fee,which can vary from $250 - $1250, that's if the change is…

I forgot they have now changed the process, maybe check with your BC and she will confirm what you can change.

You should be able to make NON Structural changes once you haven't already signed the contracts.
