Can I build a guest house in my backyard?
Question Details: I have a quite big backyard and I've been thinking about building a guest house. I understand that I probably need to get a permit. Before I get started I was just wondering if it is allowed at all to build a guest house in the backyard.
This is not a question we can answer becaue it does not depend on general legal principals or even your state's (NY's) law, but on local zoning: does your municipality permit a guest house on your property? The best way to check is to go your town's or city's building departand and simply ask whether it would be permitted on your plot.
