Are there regulations about the size of the building?
The municipality determines that the minimum construction size must be 110 sq. meters, and the maximum must be no more than 30% of the lot area. Construction may include two floors. On lots of 4,000 sq. meters, a main house may be built as well as a guest house, as long as it has less than 600 sq feet and it doesn´t have a kitchen. Also, the lots cannot be divided, so if you sell your lot in the future, it must be sold with both houses on it.
