Evan was trained as an architect at The Cooper Union and has practiced in Manhattan as a building code and zoning consultant for over 10 years. He accepts questions from Patch readers about building code and zoning questions in Yorktown. He'll do his best to give you a correct answer.
It sounds boring, but you'd be surprised how often questions come up. Can you add a home office? Deck needs to be repaired or rebuilt or extended; need a permit? Will it encroach into the required rear yard?
