Feasibility of what you’re wanting to do can quickly be determined by going to city (or county, if the lot is not in a city) and talking to Bldg Dept…to learn IF the lot can legally, practically, be sub-divided into 2 or more lots.
If it can, your next step is to talk to a Civil Engineer who specializes in land development, and learn the costs of same.
Good luck. It sounds like a great idea.
