Where do I begin? How can I position my house on my site? Who can help me with planning?
- If you need help assessing building feasibility or house location your lot, Tamlin can arrange for one of our project managers to visit your site to meet with you to discuss your ideas. Often this results in identifying potential problems or risks that may have significant impacts on building costs or future development. With such a major investment in costs, why not try to minimize your risk now and get a second opinion ? This may involve helping you arrange communication with other professionals such as “geotech” (soils testing), surveyors, septic/sanitary, structural engineering, or other services (such as hydro, gas or propane).
