Garage conversion

Disclaimer: Yes, we will consult a contractor/architect for official advice.

We have a small house on a slab and want to gain some square footage somehow. We've figured we have two options. The first is to probably dormer the attic, but only half since our furnace is up there, adding a bedroom and maybe bath. The stairs would probably be added on outside, we have room to do that.

The first is to probably dormer the attic, but only half since our furnace is up there, adding a bedroom and maybe bath. The stairs would probably be added on outside, we have room to do that. The second and arguably less expensive option is to connect our garage to the house (probably only 4 feet away) and then turn 3/4 of the garage into a bedroom, saving 1/3 at the back for storage. We have a parking pad, and would cover that to park. I talked to an architect friend of mine who thinks the slab may not support anything else, and that the city probably won't allow the garage conversion. Thoughts?

    Please give very serious consideration to your kitchen floor before throwing it away. If you are in a standard Chicago bungalow that floor is almost certainly first cut maple an inch thick. If it squeaks and you have the money you could have a flooring company relay it, eliminating all the squeaks. It will last another 150 - 200 years of normal use with occasional refinishing.

    And if it is a classic bungalow the Historic Chicago Bungalow Association has complete architectural plans and materials lists for updates and additions in designs fully harmonious with the original house. http://www.chicagobungalow.org/

    If is is a 50's/60's ranch you're on your own. If it is a pre 1889 annexation frame house covered in zbrick you are on your own, too.

  • I only have bungalow dreams. We'll call this a "condo alternative" ;) Definite starter home!

Car parked on apron but in street

I've lived on Belle Plaine near Portage Park for around 8 years and the entire time there's been a long car parked in front of the driveway on Berteau and Lockwood. It's an illegal parking spot because the car blocks parts of the sidewalk as well as parts of the roadway.

I used to walk around it when walking my kids to the school, sometimes slipping on the ice on the apron next to the garage door. Now, every time...

I've lived on Belle Plaine near Portage Park for around 8 years and the entire time there's been a long car parked in front of the driveway on Berteau and Lockwood. It's an illegal parking spot because the car blocks parts of the sidewalk as well as parts of the roadway.

I used to walk around it when walking my kids to the school, sometimes slipping on the ice on the apron next to the garage door. Now, every time I drive down Lockwood from Montrose, the car is there, sticking at least a foot into the street, Lockwood.

I've contacted the police twice, and waited a while to do this because it's a pretty lame thing to do, but I'm tired of stopping each time there is a car going in the opposite direction on Lockwood. It's also unlike the neighbors around here. Or maybe not.

In any case, nothing's happened, and I suspect it's because the homeowner is a city worker. There's often an SUV with MV plates in front of the house. Any suggestions about how to deal with this? I can always let it go.

  • Joan M. Back in Lincoln Square and liking it.

    Someone should register a site named Chicago Parking Fails, or some such, and post photographs with short descriptions, including addresses.

    Not something I would do, you understand ;-). Just a random thought.

Can the city replace my sod that ComEd destroyed?

I've been calling landscaping companies to give me an estimate. When ComEd came through, they replaced the little patch of grass on the corner with clay. Nothing will grow there. One of the companies I contacted suggested that the city may replace it. Is this true? Do I call 311?

If I need to hire somebody, can anybody give me a reputable landscaping company? I tried K.C. Landscaping but the gal never came to give me an estimate. Lost my business. Another one I called said the job was too small. Thanks everyone.

  • smartypants LifeLongCityGirl

    Do it yourself. It is not a lot of area to cover. Do it yourself sod is not too expensive and you can have it delivered right to your doorstep. Waiting for ComEd to step up will cost you more in headaches than sod will in dollars.

Catch Basin/Sewer cleaning

Hi All:
Some streets have clogged catch basins. I did the 311 form online and I have noticed some bright green dots on some of them recently. Does that mean they will be vacuumed out? It is not just some leaves around the grate, but the actual hole is plugged. I have cleaned around the grate and the street gutter near me, but it is not helping much. I know street cleaning is coming up, but this may be a separate issue. Does anyone have info? Thanks.

  • smartypants LifeLongCityGirl

    Same here!! Tried to start a ticket on this but was unable to. I constantly troll my block with my rubber gloves, a shovel and sturdy trash bag to keep sewer grates unblocked, but this year's constant rain, leaves and muck have clogged one of the actual drains below the grate. Im worried about flooding.

Building onto the garage

I saw another post where some folks in the area are looking to connect their garage and turn it into a bedroom. A lot of people were saying that the city would not allow that. Are there city issues against building onto a garage or something? I was looking to extend my garage out a few feet to give me some storage, does that seem like I'll hit some road blocks? Thanks for your help

  • And Chicago building codes hardly change. Most towns update their codes every 5-10 years so no they do not change yearly. Also, if there is not anything really wrong with the existing garage, only the addition would have to be built to today's code

  • smartypants LifeLongCityGirl

    CBP2017, not that I am recommending this, but 2 of my neighbors enlarged their garages against current city codes several years ago with no consequences....but they never notified the city of their plans, so both were done on the DL. One built into their current yard which had no impact...

    CBP2017, not that I am recommending this, but 2 of my neighbors enlarged their garages against current city codes several years ago with no consequences....but they never notified the city of their plans, so both were done on the DL. One built into their current yard which had no impact on neighbors on either side, nor did it impede newer fire codes that dont allow garages to be built up to neighboring property lines (because that increases risk of a fire spreading.) The other neighbor built a 2nd story onto his garage for storage.

Affordable landscapers?

My wife and I are looking for someone that can pull out two evergreen bushes and some landscaping gravel/rock from our front and back yard. Does anyone have an affordable local person to reccomend? Many thanks in advance!

    Lynne, what is Pond Pebble? We are looking to put kid friendly stuff on the parkspace since all of the grass washed away this winter/spring. Also, grass doesnt look nice after all the dogs get at it. Regular mulch just seems to scatter. Ideas anyone?
