House Zoned for Commercial Use
Hi, My name is Cindy and I live in Harrington. I am interested in a house that is dual zoned for commercial/residential. I would use my VA loan to purchase this. How difficult is it to get a residential house zoned for commercial use? I am looking to do this in Milford. My husband and I renovated our home so I dont mind something that needs a bit of touch up to keep the cost low. In event the business didn't go as planned it would be an investment and I could rent it out or sell it.
I am looking to start a business that would be a education/resource "center" of sorts for pregnant and new mothers.
We want to offer:
Childbirth Education Classes
Baby Wearing Educator Classes
Prenatal Yoga & Belly Dancing
On site Lactation Consultant
Moms Support Group
Birth Circle, once a month
Mom's Night Out, once a month
Prenatal and Infertility Massage Therapy
Monthly documentary screenings
Doula Support Meetings
Make your own BabyFood Class
Early Healthy Pregnancy Class
Cloth Diapering Class
Herbal Products for Pregnancy, Birth and Baby
Handmade WAHM items
My friend Heather F facilitates BabyWearing Meetings and went to Babywearing School in Utah. Soon she will be an Instructor training other babywearing educators. She also is a La Leche Leage Leader.
Carrie D, former Breastfeeing Peer Counselor for WIC and new IBCLC would be in charge of everything lactation. From classes to individual consults, pump rentals, etc.
Leah P, would teach a fusion of prental yoga and belly dancing. She is a babywearing mentor and will become an educator once my friend starts teaching classes. She also will take doula workshop.
I will teach Childbirth Education. Im collaborating with a former doula and new homebirth midwife to develop a curriculum to train doulas. Her and I will teach the workshop together. I also plane to offer a class on making homemade baby food and lead the doula support meetings.
We would like a small room that we could rent out to independent holistic practitioners.
I'm thinking we would start this in 6mos -1 year.
To get an idea of what Im going for here are a few links to similar business in other states:
