Can I convert my garage into living space?
Usually not. A 2-car garage is required for all residential units, whether it’s a single-family home, apartment or condominium unit. Even more garage space is required if your single-family home has 5 or more bedrooms. You might be able to convert it to living space if you can provide adequate garage parking elsewhere on the property. Any application to convert a garage into living space will require plans to be submitted to the City for review. The converted space will also need to meet state Building Code requirements for living space. Please speak to Planning and Building Division staff to see if your garage can be converted.
