Homes For Sale Richmond Hill Ontario – Home Renovations From Outside Toronto!

18 August, 2011

More and More contractors like myself are having to travel for work.

I can honestly say as long as there going to pay top dollar I would be there. The economy is not that great right now and people in are home town just don’t wish to spend for quality home renovations and Improvements.

I have found that are Toronto based clientele are always willing to have us there and are happy when they see us show up on time. There are so many contractors in Toronto now! Well Maybe. Last year I read an article in a business magazine about contractors in Toronto.

I article said that more than half of the Home Renovations Guy’s there are just some lay-off worker with NO liability insurance. I even tested the fact! I had a client in Richmond Hill Ontario, I already new I would get the job but I told her to get a few estimates first.

She did not really wish to do that but I wanted to see what these guy’s are charging. I looked at 4 different estimates from 4 so called home renovation companies. 1 of the contractors was a good friend of mine that I have worked on other jobs with before.

! good contractor that was insured that is what I found. The other guy’s where way less in price and 2 of them did not even give them a copy of there insurance. The other one gave a copy of his car insurance and said he was insured. WOW!


If the insurance doesn’t say skilled trades policy there not insured bottom line. Most contractors have a least one master trade. If one guy gives you a price and the other guy’s give you something totally way off that price you need to check a little farther.

The bylaw officers in Toronto should be out there enforcing these permits. Another thing permits is up to the customers. If a contractor tell you you don’t need em! He is not a good contractor. If the contractor tell you you should have permits!

He is probably a contractor that is good. I don’t like running around getting permits but if the customers want the permits I’ll get them. The bottom line is with permits without permits the contractor should still give you the same job! For more on permits in your area visit my quality home renovations website 
If have put a few links on the permits and codes page and you can read about the Ontario Building code. Every city follows the Ontario Building codes but you also need to check with your city or town regarding permits.

Example In St. Catharines Ontario the town has made a couple of changes to residences for students because of poor quality of living. Your town might have some different restrictions so always check first.

Locating hidden treasure in Illinois is no different than searching for lost treasures in any other State. The key to locating any treasure is research. You cannot locate buried treasures of any kind if you don’t know where to begin your search.

Also having a metal detector is a good idea. You don’t need anything expensive with all of the bells and whistles either. You can purchase a reliable detector for between 0 and 0. However, a metal detector is not always necessary to search for hidden treasure. You can search inside old barns and old homes without a metal detector. I know of one individual who searches for caches hidden inside old houses that are abandoned. Of course he always asks for permission before doing so.

However, for starters, here are six places to search for lost treasures in Illinois.

is located approximately two miles north of Bishop Hill. U.S. 34 in Henry County. Originally settled in 1846 by Swedish religious zealots, it was abandoned in 1862. There are rumors of a buried treasure in the area.


is located on route 20, in Jo Daviess County.

Galena was an important riverboat town during the nineteenth century. It was also one of the richest towns in the State. Over the years as the Mississippi River changed its course, it left the town of Galena two miles away from the rivers banks. Old abandoned ruins and buildings still remain there. And like many prosperous riverboat towns, a hidden treasure may be in waiting.

In 1679 Sieur de la Salle a Frenchman settled here. The town was situated somewhere on the east bank of the Illinois River, near Peoria. There are rumors that the wealthy Frenchman may have buried a treasure somewhere in or near the town.

is located approximately one half mile from the Mississippi River, near Fulton, off route 136 in Whiteside County. A large cache of gold coins may have been buried on the farm.

This well known author may have buried a large treasure of gold, silver coins and jewelry in or near his home in Chicago.

There have been many rumors that gangsters buried treasures in or around their homes in the Chicago area. The Cicero area has produced gangster hoards.

It is important that you always ask for permission when entering private property. If you are going on to State or Federal Land, in search for lost treasure, be sure to check with your State laws about any digging.

Good luck in your search for hidden treasure.

Greenwich  -  Greenwich Hill
by eldan

If you’re from the Rhode Island area, you may remember the Rocky Hill State Fair on Division Road in East Greenwich, RI. If you’re from the Kent County area, you know Laura’s Auto Sales in Coventry as well. This very rare footage shows the highlights from one of the last special years of the Fair before high insurance rates and greedy lawsuits forced the Hamilton famliy to end one of the family favorites in RI. The Flea Market at Rocky Hill fairgrounds still ran on Sundays for over a decade more until the property was sold to Brooks Drugs ( who oddly enough was purchased by Rite Aid) ending many a weekender’s treasure hunting and, extra income flow for many weekend entreprenuers. Do you have a memory of the Fair or Flea Market? Maybe you bought French Fries at Joe’s? Clam cakes from the Chowder hut. Fireworks, (back when people made their own descisions to loose a digit or two) 8 track tapes from Frank the tape guy, or even the bargain priced pair of shoes (because one was a size 5, the other a 6-1/2) Let’s here your fond memory!
