It is one thing to acquire a prime building lot in Nova Scotia, but quite another thing to have local expertise and support by your side when building your dream home.
After our customers purchase their property with guaranteed title and survey lines, the fun part follows with the construction of a cottage or home.
After the property has been transferred, we recommend opening an account with a local bank to conveniently make payments for any work that you may start on the property, such as driveways, tree cutting, preparing for a building site etc.
Before construction starts, you will need to determine with an environmental engineer the exact locations of your home, well (dug or drilled?), septic system, and access road for a building permit to be issued. Important factors to consider are the distances kept between the septic field in relation to the well, house, road etc. Once the exact site for the house is determined, the locations of all necessary infrastructure will be drawn by an environmental engineer into a site plan. These plans will be submitted to regulatory bodies along with construction plans for approval and permitting.
Construction plans may be available online, can be obtained from an architect, or from the company building your home. Once you’re satisfied with the plans, you can expect the building permit within 4-6 weeks!
Now it’s your time to shine with finishing touches. This will tie the overall look and feel together by personalizing your new home for long lasting enjoyment.
With our strong network of professional companies, contractors, and craftsmen, along with our 25+ years experience, we provide valuable support to realize your building project hassle-free.
