Yes. It’s going on the right which will join the 1 car with the 2 car, making it 5 total.

My house is 4100 sqft so that part was ok. The issue was we had to get an exception for a forward facing garage that’s further to the street than the living quarters. Mesa says a forward garage can’t be closer to the street than livable quarters. 

They were easy to work with once I let them know the plan. Our HOA was really easy to deal with too. The contractor we are using is very detailed and professional so everyone could see the end result will look good.

Here’s where we’re at already.  A gas line needs to be moved so we’ll be a little delayed. Also there’s the unexpected matter of 3 tons of sand that needs to be removed.   Other than that, all is good. 

 

This shows a more clear picture of what the big picture is.

Make sure they termite treat before they pour back

 

Sucks about the gas line but considering the location of the meter  it shouldn’t have been a total surprise to the contractor. I’m sure they built some contingency into the budget.

Gonna be a killer garage/sleeping quarters. Every builder should be more considerate of the garage for us that consider it a second home.

They’re moving pretty quick. They were given permission by the city to keep going before the gas line is moved.  They’ve been working 6 days a week so hopefully we’ll make our target of mid August.  They set up shop in the playroom turned garage.

They saw that prior and sawed enough concrete to be able to move the line. Meanwhile hey tried to get around the city to no avail lol.  The line will be under a footer which is the problem. 

Theyre going to do the digging instead of the city so it’ll save us $$. The city has to move the gas line though.

Yeah, this is why its always a good thing we get permits and inspections. Some hack decides to ignore that condition, just buries it quick, things shift and settled as they do, and then a line breaks and its bad news. Looks like you're in good hands there.  👍

You’re right. I got frustrated of course right away but I forget that inspections are done to make sure things are done right.
