This has come up many times during the consultation with the clients:

  • Do I need a city permit for my renovation?
  • How much does it cost?
  • How much space can be transformed to a living space?
  • Will I be able to call this a room if I just put a door here and a wall there?
 Each and every city has its own codes and regulations that the homeowner must follow in order to build, modify, convert or add-on to their house , different zoning, whether it is a residential or a commercial addition or site development.  These codes differ from one city to another, every year new rules and codes are being added.
