What can I build here?


Hi, I am looking into buying a two family house that is located in an R5 zone. The house is in bad condition and I will likely have to knock it down and build a new property. The size of the house is 21x32 and the size of the lot is 25x95. What can I build on this lot given its size and the zone it is in?

That question cannot be answered without anyone knowing what city you're in.

a) r-5 is defined by your local municipality.

b) you might be better off hiring a local architect to work out some real feasibility studies.

Consulting starts at $230 / hr. plus expenses and 1/3 time for travel. =) + I am a NY architectural designer. I can answer this question and more. Questions about the meanings of life and spirituality cost more.

Race to be bottom, knock yourself out.

Don't get into a bidding war, folks.  That's what's wrong with this "profession".

Don't be a sucker responding to client inquiries on the internet. This guy, Ebalic, is looking for free advice err 'consulting.' Some of the best jobs are the ones that you turn down in this "profession."

It's a sad commentary all around, from the cheap prick looking for a freebie to the bidding war responding to the post intended to flush him out.

I would answer your inquiry about life, but not before i have a retainer.

Aug 27, 13 11:22 am

^ I used to have a retainer, but don't need it anymore since my teeth straightened out.

Aug 27, 13 3:50 pm

I had a small army of retainers but couldn't afford the upkeep.
