An architect – contrary to what many may think – does much more than draw building blueprints. This professional will not only support you during the indispensable building permit application process, but also embody your housing dreams and needs, while saving you lots of headaches.
So you have a piece of land and you are ready to build your new home… Not so fast! There is a series of steps to take before any construction can begin. Even before you can get your hands on a building permit – which will allow you to start building – there is zoning, financing, surveying, architectural and engineering work to deal with.
