SOS Design planned this 2 storey 112 m² addition to a typical bungalow style home in Victoria BC.
Our client purchased a home that had been renovated by its previous owner without a permit. There were several infractions: the internal stair had been removed and an illegal suite was created in what used to be the garage.
Before a permit could be granted the owner had to comply with the city’s “clean hands policy for planning approvals“.
Our client had to obtain a building permit for the illegal work and a parking variance for the loss of the garage before any new building permit could be considered. See illegal work 12.09.2011
The project was constructed by the owner and completed 2010.
