Having a garage in The Windy City is one of the best ways to live a more convenient lifestyle. Not only will it eliminate the stress of having to find convenient on-street parking, but it will also reduce the stress of parking ordinances and fines. Plus, you will know that your vehicles are protected from the snow and ice during the brutal Chicago winters.
Building a garage onto your property is also an excellent way to add tremendous value to your property. Home buyers really value the convenience and storage abilities that a garage offers and your property will be more likely to sell for the optimal price if it has a garage.
If you have decided to improve your Chicago property by adding a new garage addition, you will need to get permission from the city first. In order to do this, you or your Chicago garage building contractor will need to order drawings of the garage plans.
Those plans can either be completed by your contractor, an architect, or and engineer. Once you have them, you will need to submit them with your application for permits to the City of Chicago. Make sure that your plans are in compliance with building codes.
For example, in Chicago, your garage must be at least two feet back on the lot, so do not submit plans where your garage begins only one foot back. Chicago city building permits application page here. Chicago building permits process page here.
