- This situation brings up the point of how important it is to plan each remodel project carefully.
- The lack of planning for this basement remodel serve as a rental unit is now causing a problem for the tenant.
- Remodel projects for a basement, attic or garage with the intended purpose of a separate dwelling such as a rental should be planned such as an apartment suite, complete with cooking and bathroom facilities which meet all the local code requirements, such as smoke detectors, GFI outlets, heating and air conditioning with all the circuit requirements to make this all possible, along with all the other supporting infrastructure as well.
- Check with your local building department for full details.
- A word of warning: The lack of planning for the proper features of a rental space can be a recipe for disaster. Believe me – I have rewired burned out structures as a result of a fire caused by improper heating equipment that was used due to a lack of planning.
