Construction

Surprise

October 15th, 2018 — When you spend a million plus for that perfectly situated waterfront cottage overlooking Samsun Narrows on Salt Spring Island the one thing you shouldn’t expect is that when it’s surveyed a good part of your property is actually on the roadway. Well, actually you should, because things were a little lax when many of these old cottages were built in the 1940’s. If the house burns down current zoning regulations might permit a tent with a porta pottie but certainly not a permanent structure. This cottage was surveyed so a new septic field could be installed.

Lot for sale

August 31st, 2018 — The normal sequence of events on the west side of Vancouver was for houses to be sold, then demolished, new houses built which were then sold but things have changed since the NDP government introduced its speculation tax on second homes. There are now a great number of empty lots for sale such as this one at Angus Drive and 35th Avenue as developers bail out on quickly lowering prices.

Parking lot

June 8th, 2018 — This parking lot at Granville Street and Cordova looks to be slated for demolition. It’s interesting how people complain about how bad traffic is in downtown Vancouver but in this picture the streets are empty especially compared to the photograph below taken at the same corner in the 1970’s.
