Michelle and Simon Gowing map out the plans for their new Saanich house.
They bought the property in August and initially planned to renovate it. They completed the proper inspections and structural safety checks before buying, but after tearing up the floorboards, they found a cracked foundation, something not found in their inspection.
They decided to start from scratch and knock the original home down, but that’s when everything took a turn.
“We had all of our plans, our architect’s designed, we’d spoken with the municipality. We were ready to submit for the building permit and the demolition permit and at that point, when we did do those submissions, that’s when we were flagged,” Michelle said.
whoops. looks like someone should not have torn down the house. anyway with some luck they can turn that lemon into lemonade. maybe upgrade the storm system to a capacity they can run a lemonade manufacturing business on the property. or maybe a distillery. or both. Saanich Lemon Gin.
