Changes to the law in Quogue will allow homeowners to build larger pool houses and second-floor additions over detached garages, 27East reported. The Quogue Village Board amended local rules, which will now allow pool houses to be up to 1,000 square feet and garages can now be up to 1,200 square feet. Residents might need the extra space because the new laws will also ban portable storage containers larger than 8 feet by 16 feet. The board ruled that residents can only keep storage containers on their properties for 60 days or less and that they must be set at least 25 feet away from the property line. [27 East]
