Fortify a garage over a crawlspace
My house is about 100 years old. I have a single detached garage built part on foundation and partially on stilts. I want to build an apt/office over it, still use the garage and meet code. The problem with tearing it down and starting over is location. The garage is right next to the property border and the city may not let me rebuild so close to the edge, remodeling is easier for approval, so I think I am stuck working with it as is. there an economical way to shore the garage foundation and floor, do what I need and meet code?
