Yesterday, at 0900 PM a new client visited me, Y. He is planning to build a private house in Kfar D., a new development. Y, like others who bought a 500 sq.m. plot in Kfar D., is a youngish (30+) hi tech employee. He want to build a den (martef) with separate entrance, which in fact will be a separate living compound. Which is not allowed. OK, so we will make him two designs for the price of one: the official one to be submitted to the Vaada, and the real one, that he intends to build. But Y. doesnt stop there, he want the underground apartment not to be underground, so there is no need for a sewage/drainage pump. Y contracted Mr L., the retired head of the Vaada, calculating that he will have the right connections to achieve a building permit with the necessary change in levels. The trick is not working, as L., because he knows the people and the regulations, refuses to submit the request. Y. came to me and asks me to find a reason to elevate the building and that I do the request. He said that street level was higher than the OO.00 of the house, which cannot be true. It is higher than the den. Yesterday we checked the levels and according to the topographic map, the street is lower than his future home. If dear reader thinks that that's all, you doesnt know how our mind works. Y contracted this morning a moded, to make a new topographic map, which - I assume - will show that the street level is higher than the 00.00 assigned to him by the Vaadah. So he has to elevate the house. If he brings me a map that shows that things are so, I'll have no choice but to request a change in the elevation. Quod erat desideratum. What is what Y. wanted.
In addition, the Vaadah "allows" up to 50 cm "error" in elevations, which Y takes into account in his calculations as a fact. I am afraid that in his dreams, he pictures his home as a scyscraper.
