Peki: Peki: FTFA: In that case, they should be evaluated and taxed accordingly.And here, ladies and gentlemen, is where the real issue is./"dirty camel-jockeys aren't paying their fair share!!!"//doesn't matter if I have a home gym in my garage and couldn't fit a Mini Cooper, much less the Chevy Suburban I have in the garage/snark offThat was supposed to read driveway.
freewill: and there's a different between doing that in a part of the home that was built to anticipate that risk instead of slapping a sliding door on the farking garage and doing it in there.
Mentalpatient87: So a kitchen or a living room will somehow be less on fire than the garage? I understand that this is how the codes are written. I'm well aware that people interpret the situation that way. I'm arguing that's it's a load of busybody bullshiat. If you see people hanging out in their garage or even going so far as to modify their house a bit and the first thing you start thinking and/or wailing about is "they're gonna burn down the WORLD!"

If you see people hanging out in their garage or even going so far as to modify their house a bit and the first thing you start thinking and/or wailing about is "they're gonna burn down the WORLD!"The other day, a rookie cop accidentally shot a loved one's house. In the front of the house, where she was sitting. He pretty much had to break every core rule of firearm safety to do it the way he did it. When you see somebody mishandling a firearm, your first thought isn't "HE'S GOING TO KILL EVERYBODY", but if you can't admit that an innocent person is eventually going to die needlessly if we let all the individual cases of people ignoring those simple and well-considered rules slide, you're being profoundly dishonest.Likewise, that's not even close to the first thing I'd think about any isolated case of some dude smoking hookahs in his garage, but if you let people use garages as living spaces across the city, it's going to happen eventually. Most people will never have their house burn down, but the purpose of the relevant portions of building cods is to make it less deadly for everybody involved if they do. Fires that spread to other structures are a valid concern, and one goal is to reduce the occurrence of those fires in the first place.As for the kitchen or living room being "less on fire", no, they'll be equally on fire, but if they're up to code, they'll be less likely to catch on fire in the first place, easier to escape from, and properly designed so that there's hopefully nothing in place that will make the situation more dangerous than it has to be.The bottom line is that if their use of the space was up to code, all they had to do was go get a permit for the conversion and have it properly in ...
KrispyKritter: Your government doesn't want neighbors talking to neighbors. Stay upstairs watching NASCAR or stroking on the porn internet. If you speak w/ people in the neighborhood you'll soon collectively realize you should take it to the streets and burn the mother down. Rich powerful whitey don't want that no sir. Go eat sugar, drink soda, stay indoors sheep.
DVDave: Really? Next to my house, the most valuable items I own are vehicles. I'm absolutely going to park them in the garage instead of leaving them outside in the elements.
