Why rules should be followed, when doing reno's on homes


House that shifted during renovation now faces demolition

A west-end house is slated for demolition Friday after it slumped toward the home next door during foundation work.

Workers had been hand digging out the basement of the detached home on Maria St., near Runnymede Rd. and Dundas St. W., when it sunk and shifted precariously on Wednesday, threatening to collapse.

“Right now it’s looking like demolition is the only safe thing to do,” said Mark Sraga, the city’s director and deputy chief building official. “Something shifted inside with respect to the soils which caused the house to shift and settle down.”
