Q: Who pays for my plans?
A: The cost of your house plans are included in the price of you house.

Q: Can I build a fence, or put up a close line on my new property?
A: This is your property and you will not be restricted by the development if you want to erect a fence, garage, clothesline etc. It is suggested you refer to the municipal bylaws before you biuld.
Q: Can I buy a lot and build my own house?

A: We are here to help you build your dream home and are more than happy to quote you on your special requirements. The added benefit is that these features can be added to the price of your home and therefore be financed in your mortgage.
Q: Are there any restrictions to the home styles that can be built?
A: Building restrictions vary between subdivisions. We suggest that you contact a Hussey Realty representative for complete subdivision guidelines.
Q: What landscaping is included with my home?
A: There are allowances included in the cost of your home to cover the front lawn and the double paved driveway. Some of our builders prefer to refund the allowance amount for lawn and pavement on closing thus allowing the new homeowner to complete these items themselves. Also, the time of the year when you take occupancy will dictate whether or not your lawn and pavement will be completed.
