Hey Guys, Some of you may remember me mentioning that I was going to have a problem building a second garage on my lot where we just finished a new house. The initial issue was that I could not build it where I wanted to b/c it would project closer to the road than the main building, in violation of a township code. Well, I read the regulation and took a few measurements and realized although my location was in violation if measured straightway, it would be closer to regulation if measured on the angle at which the roadway passes my house. This afternoon i stopped by and spoke to the code enforcement officer and asked him if my measuring method was correct, and he told me it was. We discussed it using a crude hand drawing of the house and road and he noted I could easily put a single garage there but if we were to take a good look at it once I stake it out and it is close he would be "fine with it being a bit closer than the house" but that would depend on the exact measurements. He also seemed understanding of my concern to disturb as little of the rest of the property as possible to maintain an environmentally friendly presence. Yes, I actually told him that. With my measurements I can put a 30' wide garage in that location and only the front corner of it will be closer to the road than the house - maybe 8 feet or so and only going another 8 feet or so toward the back of the garage, at which point it goes back behind the required distance. Long story short, they will approve a garage most likely and quite possibly even approve a 30' x 30'. Isn't that great? My wife waited in the car and when I came back out she asked me why I had such a grin on my face, she hadn't seen me look so happy in a while. Well, that's because i'm tickled pink, my dear! Hopefully I am not counting my chickens before they hatch........things have been looking up recently and I feel i am getting in the mood to get a car again and this would be a great way to start.
