The cottage was built with the services of a licensed architect but not permitted. It can be permitted with the service of an architect as an as-built.
It would need some work to be completed to get the occupancy certificate. For example:
It can easily be converted to and permitted as a 1 bedroom house with an additional kitchen living room for which the footing forms have been set.
Or, you could build a loft for sleeping quarters and install the kitchen appliances and the sink to permit also.
As it is, It is comprised of a concrete perimeter footing 12" min. X 16" / 6" slab on grade with 8X8X16 CMUs
A 2x10 radiating rafter roof slopes at 4/12 to a 3 1/2' Diameter 2X12 wood framed Cupola

Avocado, A Kumquat, So Much! Lilikoi (Passion Fruit), a Vanilla Vine etc.

There are more than $35,000 worth of various Palm Trees and Bananas and Tropicals (a few rare species).
There are a few mature pine trees. Two of them grow pine cones and I use them for Christmas and as fire starters for the grill.
