Often, when building codes and deed restrictions allow, it is advantageous to combine commercial space with residential. This is a versatile configuration, as the owner can occupy one space and lease the other, or lease both spaces to the same or to different tenants. Many small business owners find it desirable to work and live on the same premises. These properties are found in all neighborhoods, from downtown commercial to neighborhood residential.

This example puts a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom town home atop an existing commercial light industrial building. Here the building’s owners occupy the second story town home while continuing to lease the downstairs portion of the building. This is a workable arrangement, for a heavily insulated ceiling to floor area separating the 2 spaces, gives effective sound control. In addition, the owners and tenant’s schedules make for minimal overlapping usage of the spaces.
