What needs to be done prior to raising or moving?
First, the client needs to check local by-laws to see if the project meets their conditions. The client will then need to obtain a construction permit for work done on the property. The client will need to remove all obstacles and equipment in the basement. Removal of some electrical and plumbing lines, as well as the heating system will need to be done. Patios, decks and exterior stairs will need to be demolished or removed, and in some cases, trees may need to be felled. When a building is moved on the same lot, a surveyor will be needed on order to correctly position the house as per city or county ordinances.
