Hello BP Community,
I live in Reno/Sparks Nevada. I have a detached garage that I want to convert into an additional dwelling unit aka Granny Unit. The goal being to create a stand alone studio that I can rent out. I have already met with my local city planning department, gotten feedback from them, and now I need help finding someone who can help me create a site plan before I take next steps. I have already called architects in my area but most say my project is too small for the work they do. Anyone know of online architects that can create a stamp approved site plan?
Any tips, resources, or advice on garage conversions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all in advanced,
@Charlie Lockwood - What city are you in? Generally, Sparks is more reasonable with these these conversions. I have not done one but if your a DIY person, you can do your own everything, including permits and drawings. Had a friend do a major basement conversion. Some of this drawings were pencil sketch on graph paper but he ended up using the free license for Sketchup. It's actually pretty cool once you watch some getting started videos on how to use it. https://www.sketchup.com/ . Hope that helps a little!
I live In Reno As and Work As A "Handy Man" I have used Infinity Engineering three times now and they also drew and engineered my Brothers Two Story Addition on a hill. very reasonable.
Thanks guys for the input. I do live in Sparks (89431) and I will look into Infinity Engineering.
