    Default Garage to Sleepout with Bathroom/Kitchenette Consent and Costs

    Property that has a garage, part of it is being used as a sleep out. Work was done before 91/92 so i know i could get a safe and sanitary report for what is there at the moment.

    I want to have this rented separately while i live in the main house. What needs to be done to have a bathroom (shower/toilet/vanity) and some type of kitchen facilities? possibly a laundry?

    Will i need to get a consent? COA?
    How much roughly would that amount of work cost?
    How much would the consent cost?

    Look forward to hearing

    Anyone?

    I would assume getting water would be the main issue? any idea on costs?

    I'm about to do something similar in Welligton so ask me again in 2 months to be sure. I'm told I need to get development resource consent as it's a change of use and will be a new separate connection to services.

    Go speak with a designer who can do the working drawings and will know what council want from a look at the place.

    What you are proposing is basically changing the garage into a minor dwelling.

    Best to speak to your local council planner.

    call it granny flat and see if that makes a difference.

    It is not a change of use under the building act. It is self contained space for members of the same household either you, granny or your boarder/flatmate. Planners seem to understand granny best.

    extra plumbing needs consent and getting waste water away is the hard part depending on where the dwelling drains run?

    the garage to bedroom doesnt need consent so a CoA or even S and S isnt required.

    A good slant JTB but the poster did say they wanted to rent it out seperately.
    I took that to be totally seperate but maybe a 'flatmate' would be enough.

    I want to live in the main house and rent/have a boarder at the back that has its own bathroom and cooking facilities if possible. So our living is separate from their living areas

    How can i tell how the dwelling drains run? will be on the lim?

    How much would you think adding a bathroom would cost? is it 5k?20k?50k?

    ask a local plumber and drainlayer

    drainage plan may be on LIM but also could be on property file. Drainlayer could work this out?\

    Dont say SEPARATE you mean self contained but part of your household. The distinction can cost mega$$$$
