Recently, one of my clients got real lucky when they went to buy some kitchen cabinets. Instead of making a huge commission and keeping their mouth shut, the salesman advised my clients that they should talk to another department at the county.
You see, what had happened was my
clients were looking to
have a daycare in their basement and was given the green light on
that as long
as it had its own kitchen since there was going to be more than 5
this daycare. They were given the green light to do all this from the
department, but wasn’t done was getting the permission from the
It seems that despite the business department saying it is alright and it’s is done all the time, the code says otherwise and this person at the cabinet shop knew it. The cabinets were alright, but the stove and the sink they were planning to put in would have been not ok with the building and code department.
So, my clients saved thousands by not putting in a kitchen that would have had to be taken out. It seems even though my clients had a legit reason for putting the second kitchen in, it seems the county sees it as a duplex or a second living quarter which is not allowed.
So, before you make major changes to your home for a home business, make you talk to all departments involved or it could cost you thousands.
