In a survey conducted by President’s Choice Financial, 64% of people who undertake renovations do not consider the costs when shopping for a mortgage. Structure, building codes and by-lays may limit what and how you renovate.  There's nothing worse than planning a project and discovering it's not allowed (CMHC).  Talk to Robin Jensen about municipal building and permits Phone: (403) 554-3250 or email.
