This is a very big undertaking to change things like this. Number one thing to do is check with building and zoning in your area and see if this is feasable. They often have density limits and parking requirements that may affect your plans. Why not simply exchange for a larger property that is in need of management/upgrades/repair? It probably would be faster and cost less in the long run.
