Can I convert my garage to a living space?
No. The International Property Maintenance Code (IPMC) and the California Health and Safety Code (H&S) do not allow for the habitation of structures not intended for habitation. Also, the San Gabriel Municipal Code requires all covered parking spaces to be free of any obstructions.
