Asked by andygough1974, San Jose, CA • Fri Apr 26, 2013
The house had a permit for a detached garage with half bath which has been built and is currently being used as a photography studio. From sjpermits.org we have:
SCOPE OF WORK: BUILD NEW DETACHED GARAGE WITH HALF BATH IN REAR STORAGE AREA 3/29/04- EXTEND PERMIT TO 10/14/04. AE
I would like to fully convert this into a stdio apartment, can anyone give me advice on this?
Will I be able to get a permit to do this?
If I apply for a permit and don't get one, then do the conversion anyway (to code) would there be a heightened danger of a "surprise inspection" ?
I was hoping that because the garage was a later permitted addition to the home then I shouldn't have issues with adding additional parking due to the conversion, is that right?
The garage is 640sqft, has a garage door, the walls are insulted and there is full electric and plumbing already there (permitted). It has a side entrance and large window also.
Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks
