Currently I have washer and dryer in my basement. I want to convert a small piece of my garage into my laundry room, so I can use the basement for a bedroom, and have main floor laundry.

Is this possible to do? Also do I need a permit to do this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Candice,

Everything is possible.....NP at all! As for the permit, most probably you will need a permit. However you could call your city to find out.

You will have to construct a fully insulated room inside the garage, but it is possible. You will need permits for this job.

You don't need a permit. You have put shut off valve inside the basement for washer.
