That's a strange thing to not allow in the first place. Especially given the whole polygamy thing.

It's not a dumb idea. It's utilizing space in the city to create minimalist housing without adding much strain to the infrastructure.

Secondary suites are an important part of the affordable housing solution in any major city.
And of course lots of people object to them in their neighborhood because "eww renters".

It's been a bone of contention in Calgary for a long time but our Mayor is finally getting traction with City Council on loosening the rules.

Did they actually make a law saying you can't convert part of a single family home into a separate unit, or did the building codes catch up to the fact that people were renting "apartments" which often have only one means of egress?

lostcat: Huh...In California we just call those "in-law units."

I guess because we're so obnoxiously progressive.


Are these different from the granny flats that we talk about in San Diego?

They're typically detached units. Converted garage and the like. If your lot is zoned as single family, it could be a violation.


Huh. In Chicago, it's usually a basement or the second floor of a bungalow. We had to disconnect the gas line from the upstairs kitchen when we bought our house, so it wouldn't get taxed as a multi unit building.
