Sacramento CA housing?

So I’ve been gone for a while, mostly 'cause I had friends visiting.

The result, my good friend is going to move here from Montana. Now I have needs to move soon into a 4 bedroom place, or a 3 bedroom place with a garage I can modify.

2 questions, to my good friends:

  1. How much renovation can I get away with on a rental and not get in trouble (ie: drywall and drop ceiling in the garage to make it a livable room?)? -and-

  2. I don’t suppose any of you are renting out said property in the Sacramento area? :smiley: I had to ask, as I’m a schmuck.
    I’m back, and will be posting more soon!!!
