The building with a slightly messier front facade, now meeting the balcony size limitation and porch cover limited to what lot coverage will allow - so just a part of the porch is actually covered. The building is also moved 5ft to the front of the lot, another zoning limitation (the actual bylaw uses the word 'minimum' so we were under the impression it was a minimum - the city feels it is the actual FY setback, rather than the minimum which is allowed to vary by plus or minus 1 meter. And - the building length was increased 1ft to the rear so all overhangs are now the allowed 20inches (this doesn't count for lot coverage), except on the south facade. I find the flanking stub walls balance the massive feel of the roof. The exposed framing may be too messy?
