What's New? 
Zombie Survivor on July 23rd...so yeah. I should really start training for that. Time flies and evidently I have been completely ignoring it, much to my demise I'm sure. Basically I'm going to be eaten by a zombie and I've come to terms with that.  
Stand Up Paddle Boards - I've talked about my love of SUPing on here before - this stocky frame was MADE for it - low centre of gravity, tough legs, it's perfect for me. I'm heading to Idaho for a week in September and plan on renting boards before I go (because Coeur D'Alene was WAY too expensive last year!)  Besides Undercurrents - does anyone know of any rentals in town?  Thanks!  :)

BEFORE You Build a Deck...
There are some serious rules and regulations about building anything (including a deck) on your property. Did you know that before you build a deck you are required to submit two sets of plans, including a site plan and building plans (structural cross-section and plan view)? And that the plans must be complete, legible, drawn to scale, and must contain all details as outlined on the Building Permit Requirement Lists for decks?

Most Building Permit applications for a deck can be processed on a “same day” basis at the counter.  After accepting your application and ensuring the information complies with The City of Calgary Land Use Bylaw 1P2007, the application will be forwarded to a Safety Codes Officer to ensure your application also complies with the Alberta Building Code.

For more information, visit The City of Calgary website and review the “deck Application Requirement” section.
