State of the address

We have permits!

And all it costs us is $18.232.88 for the city permits and the hookups to those little things that make life worth living, electricity, gas, sewage et al.  And another $1,303.48 for the DCL.  What is a DCL, you ask?  As did we.  A DCL is a Development Cost Levy. That is what it is.

To put it simply, it is part of the cost of doing business with the city, and so pay it, take your permits and go away. It’s a good idea, it pays for some good stuff, but it was a bit of a surprise.  We are, however, thankful we are not building in an area that needs a layered DCL.

And we are thankful we have permits!  And a new address – 3222 East 8th. It sings! It rolls off the tongue, does it not?  Three-two-two-two!  Thirty-two, twenty-two!  Three thousand, two hundred and twenty-two!

We are moving forward, for the mere cost of $19, 535.56!  Thank you, City of Vancouver!

And thanks to our builder/designer who held our hands through the process.  And thanks to Ryan at the City of Vancouver, who really likes the design of our laneway home!

Bless you, City of Vancouver, and all who sail in you.

We have permits!
