New Online Interactive ehouse Helps Home Improvements

The City of Calgary is launching an online interactive 3D house, or ehouse, to help citizens determine what permits and requirments are needed when doing home improvements.

“The ehouse brings all our residential related information into one place," says Stan Schwartzenberger, director with Development & Building Approvals.

"The house has hot spots for specific information. If you are looking for particular information on, say, basement development, you would click on that hot spot and it would bring you to the information you require prior to starting your improvement project."

The ehouse also links to PDFs and other brochures that includes all one needs to know when doing home improvements. For example, when building a wood deck, it includes the Wood Deck brochure, application
requirements for when building either in a developed or developing area, and the contact phone number for the planning services support centre.

For more information, please visit and if you have any questions, please email

Please be patient while the page loads, it could take a few minutes.
