Dear PoP – Contractor with DC Permitting Office Experience for a Carport/Deck Renovation

“Dear PoP,

I am looking for an experienced contractor who knows his/her way around the DC Permitting office. We want to convert our tiny back yard into a deck with a carport underneath. i was just looking to see if your readers had recommendations. I am told my job is difficult because DC has “60%” rule on lot development. This is why we place emphasis on “experience” with the DC permitting office.”

Anyone know good contractors with DC Permitting office experience? Can anyone properly explain the “60% rule” and how it is enforced?
