Part 2: Pre-Renovation Walkthrough of the Vertical Split Accessory Apartment

December 31, 2018

In Part 2 of this mini series, Ryan Carr walks us through his recently purchased bungalow and explains how he will split this single family home into a fully legal 2 unit home using his Vertical Split method.
In particular he explains where the vertical fire separation wall will go, how the property will be divided into Unit A and B, and the locations of his kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms. We take a look at how the existing entrances and stairs will be utilized, and where the new set of stairs will be installed. He also shows us the poured concrete pad in the backyard where a 2 car garage will be constructed and he explains how he’s managed to get approval for 2 separate driveways with plenty of parking.
