Subsidy: Approved!

While no work may be going on at the building site (formerly known as our home), we did receive some good news today...

We have been approved for the City of Montreal subsidy for the restoration of the front brickwork of our home. It amounts to one third of the cost of the repairs (approx $10k). As we've discovered during the process, it's not just about renovation, it's about restoration to the former glory and original look of the triplex. Currently the top of our home has a straight edge with no defining features, but we'll be adding back a "cornice" (or "parapet") to the top of the house, which will crown the fa├žade.
