The living space of a one storey brick dwelling was tripled, and a small bungalow was converted into the one of the kind 3 storey contemporary house with finished basement and livable 3rd storey attic. In an established enclave of 1-1/2 storey homes, adding a third floor to a proposed dwelling is difficult enough. The key factor in obtaining the positive verdict of the Committee of Adjustment was the fact that the addition would be constructed on existing footprint, not to mention the fact that using existing foundation helped to save the homeowner over ten thousand dollars.

With this, we are able to expertly advise you on features that the zoning by-laws cannot allow, or can be circumvented by obtaining approval for minor variances. Our goal is to incorporate as many allowable design features that support your modern lifestyle in Toronto, through minor variances that allow us to better work with outdated zoning by-laws in the area.
Once the City of Toronto issues your building permit, we will promptly show you the corresponding documentation as a complete package to begin the construction of your custom built home in North York.
The survey, floor plans, elevation drawings, section drawings, structural plans, HVAC plans, and truss designs will be signed and stamped; together with the building, demolition, plumbing, drainage, and HVAC permits duly approved by the Committee of Adjustment, Ministry of Transportation, and the Urban Forestry and Tree Department (if required) will be delivered to you.
Always, our goal is the timely delivery of said approved drawings and permits, while staying on budget.
