Building on bedrock without blasting
I hope you can help me with some options for building on bedrock without blasting.
In short, I am looking at a lot in the Gulf Island, Canada that has a lock ledge with a spectacular water view beyond. People are walking away from purchasing this lot because of the blasting costs. I don’t want to blast for the purpose of putting in a foundation. Instead, I would like to build up in order to maintain the integrity of the natural landscape. What are my options/costs attached to this technique? Am I going to run into a problem finding a contractor who is familiar with this technique?
