Every other builder has lot depths larger than Mattamy's, FYI, so while higher density is a thing...it's not the factor in this case.

Just saying...if you're fine with the tiny lot, all good. ;)

I sure hope they started giving more than 82' lot depths. :rolleyes:

I believe the upgrade is usually listed as approx. 12", meaning it is not an exact measurement. Provided you're not losing 6"+, I believe a small variance is acceptable per building standards.

Do it after-the-fact. You'll save money and have more selection. It will however require a bit of shuffling in the household with a company coming in to measure, remove counter tops, drawers, etc.

Not sure, but the company who installed it should. Typically their sticker is on the inside of the door...I'd give them a call since you could be waiting a while with Tarion.
