Cute Adaptive Reuse Nightmare

A co-worker directed me to this compilation of stories on WebUrbanist about adaptive reuse projects. They range from an airplane-now-home to an airplane hanger that is a completely contained beach resort.

Architect: John Perkins

One story that really intrigued me was this one on the bureaucratic nightmares involved in a seemingly simple project; converting a garage into a small residence that would fit into the preexisting urban landscape and meet all city codes.

So not as easy at it would seem.
