Find out if its possible to construct a garage. This may be the most appealing scenario for buyers who value parking their own car in an enclosed structure. Obtain setback, variance, and permit requirements from the local building and planning department so you can help buyers estimate what kind of garage can be built, if any, and how long the approval process takes. In her downtown Albuquerque area, Beecher says small one-car garages can be constructed in alleys behind the houses for approximately $10,000 to $12,000, typically taking 30 to 45 days to complete, depending how busy the city and contractors are with other projects. In Sarasota, Roach says the county code and FEMA requirements demand that structures withstand natural disasters such as flooding, wind, and hurricanes. Thats why approval for a permit and construction for a new garage can take up to four months. Chicagos code requires the digging of a four-foot-deep foundation for any garage so its below the frost line, says Michael B. Klein, CEO of The Airoom Companies, architects, builders, and remodelers in Lincolnwood, Ill.
Audible charms. Wind chimes may please some; others, such as neighbors, may find them annoying, Sachs warns. Thats why she cautions homeowners to be thoughtful about how they incorporate them. Sachs also notes that a mass of tall decorative grasses can add soft rustling noise as a less intrusive sonic alternative. Because of the cost and space needs associated with large water features, home owners may want to avoid a pond or babbling brook, says Carman. But a small stream can add tranquil sights and sounds. Alternatively, a soaking tub can offer a source of calm and way to ease aches and pains, Christensen says. Landscape designer Susanne Fyffe, whose eponymous firm is based in Arlington, Va., has used a recirculating fountain to add trickling noises without wasting water, which also drowns out street traffic. Song birds and bees add wonderful music to the air too, Carman says. And besides using just plants, berries, and flowers to attract them, water in the form of baths and feeders stocked with food will likely bring more to your garden, Sachs says. The plethora of wireless speakers also makes it easy to bring music into a garden. Baumann says the addition of a chicken coop in the therapy garden behind their firms office has offered a new way to experiment with some less predictable outdoor features: “There is something about chickens and animals that brings us all back to our childhood—that simplicity of interacting is healing. We all have a bit of nostalgia, dont we?”
