Sorry, I hit enter and it posted my discussion, so I know that there is a misspelled word, but I was not able to edit or delete it.
My husband and I have a total rehab project under contract. The building was an old dry cleaners that we are looking to turn into 6 residential, 1 commercial space. We have a few rental properties, and all of them had some level of distress, but this will by far be the biggest project yet. We are unsure of what questions to ask an architects, or really what to look for when selecting one for our project. Any advice about this would be very much appreciated.
First make sure your zoning is correct and allows that. I assume it would be okay.
Discuss fire separation. Noise separation. Fire exits / Egress . Everything you have to do to bring it up to code.
