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.”
