Turn a Carport attached to a Garage?

“If we have a permitted & original to the home attached carport can we enclose it and turn it into a garage permanently? Or put up removal more-so-enclosed things like screens, gate or doors at the entry to the carport?

It would seem as it already has a roof, concert floors, wall 1/3 of the way up on both sides & is attached to the house (on the ‘front’ of the carport.) It would not be effected by the storm water run off that stops so many garages from going up in DC.

Am I being too logical for the DC build codes people/rules? Wondering if I would even need a permit as there would not be any structural changes.”

Dog walking in Penn Quarter/Chinatown:

“We have recently moved to the Clara Barton in Penn Quarter and are looking for a reliable dog walker for our two very lively Boston terriers during the week. We’d also be interested in a walker who is a willing to do a bit of training (sitting at intersections, etc– our dogs are new to urban living so they need some pointers) There is a dog walker that serves our building exclusively, but she isn’t taking new clients right now. I have heard mixed reviews of the dogwalkers of Wagtime.”

  • Christian at Waggiewalkies did a great job for me (801 Penn Ave). Electronic billing with a great online system. Tell him Molly the boxer/bull dog and Jon sent you.

    If you have to ask, I think you know the answer.

  • Fantastic service – great dog walkers, you get an email notifying you when the walk starts and finishes, everyone is wonderful – I’ve been using them for 3 years now and love them. Toni and Avi also do great dog training too!

  • Patrick is AMAZING! Our stubborn Maltese is a dream after being with Patrick for a bit –

  • Metro Mutts has a fantastic dog walking service. We used them when we were living in the Clara Barton’s sister building, the Lancaster, and they were wonderful. They’ll also do the types of training you’ve described and leave you notes about how the dog is progressing.
