Re: Few New Ones,


Is that staple on brick on the side of that first house? If you tear a house down you often can't build it in the same location, setbacks from the sidewalk now are like 15' or more, many old homes are built within a few feet of the sidewalk and have no front lawn but big backyards...I'm a fan myself.

Re: Few New Ones,


We got one chimney complete but the home owner forgot to pay to cover the hydro lines so we got delayed on the second.

Re: Few New Ones,


Toronto Hydro will do that? They won;t here. Have to get a friggin disconnect. Talk about some happy customers. Had one house where the rest of the block piggy backed off of his house (not exactly sure how that works) so all the rest of the block lost power for the day. PITA
