So I have a perfect room downstairs that I was getting all excited about converting into a cake kitchen. I called the health department (then got transfered to the department of agriculture) to ask some questions. The lady on the phone mentioned that one important thing was to have a seperate entrance to the kitchen. I asked her if that meant it was 100% necessary and there was NO way around that and she didn't really give me an answer, just something about having someone come inspect my plan.

She sent me a packet in the mail with all the information regarding home kitchens and it said again that a seperate entrance is required.

Is that game over then? Just like that? The door to the downstairs is only a few feet away when you walk in the front door and we can wall it off downstairs and put a door in to block off the rest of the downstairs.

Also, does anyone know off hand if being downstairs is an issue? It didn't say anything in the packet, but I didn't specifically ask on the phone.

I live in Grand Rapids, MI for reference.
