What You Need
Before the construction on your new garage can begin, you and your contractor will need to go through the due diligence of obtaining the necessary permits. In most cases, you’ll need to apply for a combination of Boston’s short-form, long-form, and erect construction permits. Go here to learn more.
This may sound intimidating but the process is actually fairly simple in Boston. All you need to do is fill out the paperwork, either online or in person. Your permit application will then be placed under zoning review, during which plan examiners will review your application and grant permission for your to build your garage.
Should it be determined that your application does not meet requirements, you can appeal to the Review Board of Appeals.
As one of the first major American cities founded in pre-Revolutionary days, Boston has seen it share of notable history. Along the way, it has also endured some of the most tumultuous weather ever to be encountered in the northeastern United States.
For this reason alone, most homeowners in Boston and the surrounding Suffolk County area are quite enamored of the garages that protect their cars. Some have even gone a step further and expanded their garage for other reasons.
Here are just a few of the more noteworthy ways that they have accomplished this:
Adding an apartment – For whatever reason, the expansion of living space in a Washington D.C. Home is a benefit. It may immediately yield benefits by providing a separate space for anyone from a recent college graduate to a live-in parent. From a more long-term perspective, the built-out garage apartment can reap a significant amount of extra monthly income.
Making a home office space – As befits the sixth largest metropolitan area in the country, the Boston metroplex is home to many large public and private companies. As such, office space in the area commands a price premium. Homeowners who are entrepreneurs or otherwise self-employed are well advised to consider the benefits of creating a home office out of their garage instead of paying office rent.
Utilizing outside storage space – When it comes to outdoor activities, there is plenty to do in and around the Boston area. Taking advantage of these opportunities also means finding enough space around the home to store the needed equipment. An outdoor storage space connected to your garage offers the perfect way to accomplish this goal.
Creating a hobby space – Whether you are a model train aficionado or an accomplished craftsperson, it is quite nice to have a space specifically dedicated to your hobby. In addition to giving you plenty of place to work, there is no need to clean up after yourself every time you decide to spend a few moments doing what you like best.
Building a Solarium – The winters in Boston can be quite destructive to the plants around your home. It often pays to protect them inside a solarium. It takes a little work to move the plants but at least you will not have to start over your gardening efforts when springtime arrives once again.
