Re: Building a kitchen in a non-living space?

@Helm

Melloncollie says the whole basement is heated. As far as I understand it here in kt. Zurich, all heated spaces are included in the wohnraum. At least the two times I have tried to add heating to basements, or close in a loggia with glass the bauamt immediately responded that this would change the size of the wohnraum. In the case of the basement we eventually got the permit, but for the loggia they refused to allow us to seal off the loggia from drafts... we weren't even trying to get a permit to heat it.

If the basement is already part of the wohnfläche then all Melloncollie has to do is make sure that the kitchen is serviced properly with water and electricity, no?

That is, unless they want to prevent her from converting the basement into a separate apt.
