The builder has been busy in preparation to commence works on the project. They have obtained the permit allowing them to build near the sewer, and have diverted a sewer line that was crossing our land. These works could not commence nor could we receive  the permit approval until the neighbours at the property provided consent.

They started the mobilisation and the construction will commence next week.

August 31st, 2020

After we completed demolition the builder has mobilized onto the site and will start the construction shortly. The builder is required to obtain a ‘building near sewer’ permit before they can start construction. Once they have this permit, the builder will begin works.

We have also settled on the construction finance for this project.
