How Close to a Property Line Can I Build a Garage?
Before you jump into construction on your new garage, you’ll need to know the setback regulations for your area, which determine how close you can build to your property line.
Looking to increase your storage space with a new garage? If you’re planning on building a detached structure on your property, you’ll need to know more than just its dimensions. Most cities and municipalities have local regulations in place that determine where you can build a detached structure—like your new garage—even on your own property.
These local regulations are called setbacks—but what are they exactly, and how do you get the information you need? Look no further than

What is a setback?
A setback is a general regulation on a structure that determines how close it can be to other buildings on the property. Setbacks also dictate how close structures can be to property lines—or, in other words, how far they must be “set back” from the property line.
Unfortunately, setback regulations aren’t uniform, even on a state level. Individual municipalities tend to dictate their own rules and guidelines, making for lots of variation in setbacks from place to place.
Why you need to know about setbacks
Generally speaking, you’re pretty much entitled to do on your property as you please.
But if you’re building new structures, there are often various local laws that dictate where you can build on your property, along with other structural features like how big or tall your structure can be.
These regulations are primarily in place to protect property values—both yours and your neighbor’s. Setbacks are among such regulations, but they can get a little trickier to decipher than simple size codes.
Setbacks not only vary from place to place—but they can also vary from yard to yard! You may be subject to different setbacks depending on whether you’re putting your garage in your front or back yard (or even on the side of your house). In fact, each side of your yard will likely have its own setback rules.
That’s why any good garage-building project should include adequate research into your area’s setback guidelines!
Building codes and setback rules
Although exact setback requirements differ, the standard setback is 5 to 10 feet from your property line. You’ll likely also have to set back your garage at least 15 feet from your main home—although you’ll want to double-check your area’s building codes for the specifics.
For garages, municipalities may also have building codes that regulate the maximum height and length requirements and potentially even the materials you can use to build your garage in the first place.
Building directly along your property line isn’t typically allowed for several reasons. For one, you can wind up accidentally encroaching on your neighbor’s property, especially if you’re not one-hundred-percent confident in where your property lines actually are.
For another, it can cost you—literally. Violating setback rules can result in expensive fines, and probably also the demolition of your hard-built structure.
Zero setback garages
In the past, garages were often built directly along property lines, or at the intersecting corners of property lines. These garages are known as “zero setback” garages since they were constructed directly on property lines.
In some cases, you can still build a garage with zero setback—namely, if you’re replacing or repairing an existing garage that’s built on the property line. You also may be able to get away with a zero setback garage if your property is relatively small, or if the structure won’t have any protruding overhangs or architecture that could cross onto the neighboring property.
Your local building department will likely have guidelines for building zero setback garages, although you should be prepared to find them stricter than regular setbacks.

Building a new garage on your property
Now that you know about setbacks, you can start planning your garage!
The first step is to research—determining your local setback regulations will help you locate the perfect place to build your structure. You’ll also need to know them to plan the size of your space and draw up any blueprints. From there, you can assemble the required building materials (compliant with local building codes, of course!) and get to work.
Usually, you won’t need to acquire a permit before breaking ground on your new garage, so long as your structure is compliant with setbacks, is at least 300 square feet, is properly ventilated, and does not interfere with local drainage or ground wires.
Setbacks for other structures
We’ve covered the general guidelines for building a garage on your property. But what about other structures? As with garages, additions, sheds, fences, and even homes are subject to unique setback regulations:
Homes: For building an entirely new residence, setback guidelines range between 5 and 10 feet from the property line on either side and 10 to 20 feet in front and back.
Sheds: Like garages, the exact setbacks for sheds can vary greatly depending on where you live. In general, sheds should be at least 5 feet from a front or rear property line, and at least two feet from your property lines on either side.
Fences: Some cities allow for shared fences built along property lines—in these cases, the fence often becomes the equal responsibility of the property owners who share that fence line. In other places, you’ll run into setbacks, most commonly between two and eight inches for new fences.
Additions: Building an addition or expansion on your main home will typically take more planning, as most towns and cities determine specific size and height guidelines in addition to enforcing setbacks.
Does home insurance cover detached structures?
Want to protect your newly built garage with
? Luckily, you can—most homeowner’s insurance policies include dwelling coverage that protects your home from vandalism and damage—and a percentage of this coverage is extended to detached structures, like garages.
Typically, that is 10% of the coverage. So if you’ve got $200,000 worth of dwelling coverage included in your policy, your garage (or fence, or shed) would be covered for up to $20,000 worth of damage.

Country Garage | K-DOM
Country plot has a number of advantages for living. One of them, of course, is the availability of sufficient space to build a garage. Often people live outside the city, but work in the metropolis, and using a car is an urgent need. Therefore, the construction of a garage is an important stage in the development of a personal plot.
1. The location of the garage on the site and the norms of its construction
First of all, you need to decide on the place that the garage will take on your site. The garage belongs to the class of fire hazardous buildings, so its construction must first of all comply with fire safety standards. It is from this that one must proceed when starting to build it in one place or another.
- The garage is classified as an explosive area. This is due to the fact that gasoline vapors can form and accumulate in it, which imposes special requirements on the construction of a garage:
- Use of non-combustible building materials – metal, stone, concrete, brick, etc.
- Floor elements made of wood must be treated with special fire-fighting compounds
- Possibility of regular ventilation
- Quality ventilation equipment
- Construction of a separate storage room for large quantities of fuel
- For work on the repair of the fuel and electrical parts, a separate area is equipped in front of the garage
- Construction near the garage of a fire shield (with a fire extinguisher, bucket, shovel, crowbar, hook), water tank and iron box with sand
- The location of the building at a distance of at least 10 meters from other structures (if the garage is not attached to the house)
- The entrance to the garage should be convenient and lit at night
- Garage doors should not only secure the car, but also be easy to open in case of fire danger.
- Garage space should be spacious – to allow access to the car from any side
- The area of the garage must correspond to the dimensions of the car (it is better to build it immediately with a margin) – the gap between the bumper of the car and the gate must exceed 25 cm, between the back of the car and the back wall must be at least 2 meters, the distance from the walls of the side of the car – at least 60 cm.
- If there is a trailer, the area of the garage is increased and a special place is equipped.
Based on these standards, we see that the garage must have a sufficiently large and equipped plot of land under it.
Plan of a plot with a garage
One of the possible options for choosing a place for a garage would be to build it next to the house. This has a number of advantages:
- Saving space on the plot for the garden zone, recreation area, playground – in any case, there should be an area free from these zones next to the house
- There is no need to conduct communications for a separate building – water, electricity, sewerage, etc.
- Use of a heating system combined with the house, which will affect the storage of the car in the cold season
- Possibility of equipping the entrance to the garage directly from the house
Plan-scheme of a house with a garage in the basement
A garage located near the house can be:
- Built-in, when the garage is under a common roof with the house and is included in its structure. Often a garage is built in the basement of a building.
- Attached, when there is one common wall between the house and the garage.
Garage Build-in The building requires an overall weighted foundation, while an attached garage can be installed on a lightweight foundation.
A detached garage has a number of advantages:
- Reduced fire hazard for a residential building
- No disturbance to residents when car repairs, when using the garage in the evening or early morning
- Possibility to place it directly next to the gate of the section
Garage at the entrance to the site
2. Garage or carport?
The peculiarity of the garage as a separate building is due to:
- Reliable car theft protection
- Possibility to heat the garage in winter
However, it makes sense to wonder whether a car always needs to be built in a separate, rather expensive building. In some cases, you can limit yourself to just a platform for storing a car. It is better if it is protected by a canopy from exposure to sunlight and precipitation.
When is it appropriate?
- When the car is temporarily on the site. These can be episodic trips to the country, where you rarely spend the night.
- With reliable protection of a country village
- In mild climate all year round
- When using the site only in the warm season
- If there is a second or third car in the family, when the garage will be used only for the repair of one car
- When the territory of the site is limited
In any case, it is always advisable to install a canopy over the car in order to protect the car from atmospheric precipitation and sunlight. It can be something like a tarpaulin on poles or a more or less permanent structure of an open type.
However, it should be remembered that even the arrangement of a platform for a car must comply with the fire safety standards that we listed above.
Sometimes building a carport is enough
3. Designing a garage
Any structure on the site must be identified on the site master plan and designed in accordance with building codes. Without this, the garage will not be properly registered in the property, which is fraught with unpleasant consequences for the possible sale of the house, etc. Moreover, the building can be attributed to unauthorized construction and forced to be demolished – this is in the worst case.
When designing, first of all, they determine the choice of a place for a garage. The site for its construction is reflected in the plan. This applies not only to the capital garage, but also to the carport.
The building itself is designed taking into account
- Availability of additional premises, including a viewing pit
- Building material
- Laying the necessary utilities
Garage project can be ordered from architectural workshops, building organizations or made by yourself. By and large, a garage is essentially a building box with a roof. The complexity of its design is predetermined only by the increased requirements for the construction of garage-type buildings and the presence of heavy entrance gates.
4. Features of building garages from various materials
Consider the advantages and disadvantages of garages built from various materials
Brick garages – perhaps the most common type of construction of buildings of this type. They are primarily characterized by high fire safety, since the brick itself is made of refractory clay. Brick structures are durable, reliable, aesthetically pleasing. Building a garage is quite simple, since you can build a brick box yourself if you have even a little experience in construction.
The disadvantages include the relatively large weight of the structure and the need to create a solid foundation. In addition, the cost of building a garage can result in a significant amount. If necessary, additional work on the insulation of brick walls may be required if you want the garage to be heated.
Aesthetically pleasing brick garage
Block garages are even easier to build than brick garages. Often, lightweight gas and foam blocks can be used for construction, which will greatly facilitate the building and require the use of a lightweight foundation. The cost savings are obvious, and laying blocks is much easier than brick. At the same time, in terms of fire safety, they are not inferior to brick.
The disadvantages of block construction are the features of the building material itself – the blocks are very afraid of moisture. Therefore, after the construction of the garage, they must be lined with hygroscopic materials. The increased moisture permeability of block structures can also lead to poor thermal insulation of the premises.
Cinder block garage box
Reinforced concrete garages have traditionally been used in mass construction – in particular in garage cooperatives. This was due to the simplicity and ease of building garages. Monolithic reinforced concrete slabs of standard size are manufactured at the factory and the garage is assembled from them. Usually a garage is assembled from a ready-made kit – with walls, a floor and a roof made of reinforced concrete slabs. You can build such a garage in just a few hours. The strength and fire safety of reinforced concrete walls is not inferior to brick and block walls.
The disadvantage of such construction, of course, is its complexity and the need to use special construction and lifting equipment. Often the passage of such equipment to the site is difficult.
In addition, the appearance of garages is unpresentable, and the dimensions of the garage can not always meet the needs of the owner due to the standard size of reinforced concrete slabs.
However, the pouring of reinforced concrete can also be carried out on site – into a specially constructed formwork. But this is a rather complex and specific type of construction, although relatively inexpensive.
Typical reinforced concrete garage on site
Metal garages are also well known to us from the city landscapes. Their advantages are in the simplicity of the “box”, in the reliability of the metal in terms of the security function and fire safety. Such a garage can be built quickly enough, or you can immediately purchase ready-made and install it on the site. Metal garages are collapsible and non-collapsible. A collapsible garage is mounted from prefabricated metal panels (the basis of which is a metal sheet) attached to a metal frame.
The lightness of the garage does not require a separate foundation for them. The simplest type of metal garage is the so-called “shell”.
The disadvantages of metal garages are obvious:
- Cold resistance
- Moisture condensation on walls and ceiling due to temperature changes
- Unpresentable appearance
Such a garage can be purchased ready-made
5. Stages of building a garage
- Finding a place for a garage
- Garage design
- Preparation and marking of the site for the construction of a garage
- Building a foundation for a garage
- Construction of garage walls
- Garage roofing and roofing
Some of these steps may be omitted when building a garage of one type or another.
6. Garage maintenance standards
It is important not only to choose a place for a garage and build it correctly. It is equally important to comply with certain standards when operating a garage building or premises.
Special attention should be paid to a number of prohibitive measures. It is forbidden in the garage:
- Refuel the vehicle
- Leaving a car in the garage with leaking fuel, oil and faulty electrical equipment
- Store more than 20 liters of gasoline or 30 liters of diesel fuel, 5 kg of lubricants
- Use fuel or electric heaters and any heaters with temperatures above +80 degrees Celsius on the surface
- Carry out welding work
- Carry out painting work
- Store and use plastic parts unless made of dielectric materials
- Ventilate the garage regularly
- Thoroughly clean the garage floor from oil contamination
- Avoid random storage of oily rags
- Periodically check the condition of electrical wiring and other utilities
- Replace light bulbs in time
- Have a first aid kit in the garage with the necessary set of medicines to provide first aid to the injured

The choice of a garage is determined mainly based on the size of the plot and the financial capabilities of the owner. It should be noted that it is necessary to think in the future. Even if your family does not have a car, this does not mean that one will not appear in the future. And maybe not just one. It is better to plan at least a place for a garage, taking into account all the norms, in order to correctly formalize the rights to property in the future.
You can build a garage with your own hands, you can buy a ready-made garage (for example, as a temporary option), or you can contact construction organizations.

optimal dimensions and building plan
Any project of a quality garage for 2 cars requires strict calculations and taking into account the requirements of standards. Car owners have to learn about how much space a particular type of car takes up. But many would like to place in the building, in addition to autoboxes, also workshops. There are so many things to take into account. So how to build such a garage?
- 1 Planning and sizing
- 2 Design considerations
- 2.1 Interior layout
- 2.2 Entry options
- 2.3 Alignment
9001 1 2.4 Vehicle dimensions
- 2.5 Floors
- 2.6 Number of gates
- 3.1 Frame
- 3.2 Brick
- 3.3 Foam blocks
- 3.4 Aerated concrete
Planning and sizing
Car owners, even with one vehicle, prefer to build one garage for two cars at once for several reasons. Firstly, in this way building materials are saved in case there is a need for a second parking space. Secondly, communications are carried out once. And then the car will always be there. But the construction of such a structure involves calculations to achieve optimal dimensions.
When calculating the size of a garage for a car, the first thing to consider is the standards for one parking space. In accordance with GOSTs, they are equal to:
- 5.5 meters long;
- 2.3 meters wide;
- 2.2 meters high.
These dimensions are the minimum, and if the car is large, then increase them. But this is not enough. Take into account the space around the car. So, standard, occupied by cars with open doors, the dimensions of the space increase by another 10-15 centimeters. To this is added a mandatory gap between the walls, equal to 30 centimeters.
Thus, a garage for one sedan would be 6.1 meters wide. At the same time, the length of the race is at least 5. 5 meters. Together with the additional space required, this makes the structure at least 6.8 meters long.
Drawings for the construction of such a structure are made independently, due to the simplicity of the form.
Even the construction of such a building as a garage requires taking into account all sorts of nuances. In the case of this design, special attention is paid to several points:
- the presence of a parking lot with a canopy;
- gate height;
- the presence of a gate at the entrance to the site.
A parking lot with a canopy near one of the walls of the building is designed in advance so that it takes into account its location and the position of the entrance to the site. The height of the gate is selected taking into account the possible acquisition of a tall car.
Special projects for two-vehicle garages are quite easy to find on the Internet.
The interior layout of the garage is displayed on the drawings that are made before the start of construction work. It takes into account the needs of car owners not only in boxes for cars, but also in other premises.
So, garages are combined with workshops and baths. On the layout, such premises are often placed on the side of the parking lot. If the garage acts as an extension to the house, then additional premises are located opposite the entrance to it. The number of rooms in an average garage, including an autobox, ranges from one to three.
A two-car garage is often designed with an entrance so that, if necessary, both cars can pass through it. But this is the ideal. In some cases, deviations from this rule are allowed.
There are two main types of entrance to such a garage:
- separate gate;
- the only gate.
The first option has a number of advantages. In particular, it allows convenient parking without moving the second vehicle. In addition, a place for a second car is rented out if it has not yet been purchased. The main disadvantage of this option is the cost.
For car owners with a limited budget, a garage with a single entrance is offered. For even greater savings, single-leaf gates are installed. But a more convenient option is sectional, with automation.
GOST 31174 of 2003 requires that the width of the entrance should not be less than six meters.
Combining a garage with utility blocks is a popular solution among car owners who want to save space on their site. They do this by increasing the width of the building by a couple of meters. This is quite enough to add a workshop or even a mini-sauna to the autobox.
A popular solution is to connect a garage with a carport with a carport. In this case, the former serves as a support for the latter. In houses with a high basement and deep groundwater, a garage is combined with a basement or basement floor.
The dimensions of the transport that they plan to put in the garage is the most important calculation indicator. The width and length of a standard passenger car are 1.7 meters and 4.5 meters, respectively. But oversized vehicles are also taken into account. For example, pickups. Their presence implies a large height, both the entrance and the building itself. Some types of cars are generally not put in local garages.
Standard garage – single storey. It is easier to build, and it allows you to place fairly high cars. At the same time, families with passenger cars and those who do not plan to acquire another type of vehicle increase the usable area of the house due to the garage. To do this, they build an attic floor above it. It is used for various purposes, including as housing. It is important to reflect it on the construction project.
Number of gates
Car owners are offered to choose between designs with different arrivals:
- with one gate;
- with two gates.
The first option is good for those who have a limited budget. Its advantage is that, having saved on the number of entries, it becomes possible to install high-quality automatic gates. The downside is that the cars will have to leave in turn.
The second variant has no such drawback. But it’s more expensive. The main way to save here is the installation of single-section gates that open manually. True, their discovery takes much longer.
The construction of a garage requires, first of all, the right choice of materials from which it will be built, and their subsequent purchase. When choosing building materials, take into account factors such as:
- garage type;
- its location;
- construction budget.
There are different types of building materials, and each of them has certain advantages and disadvantages.
Most commonly used today:
- lumber for framing and roofing;
- foam blocks;
- aerated concrete.
Frame garages are considered the easiest and cheapest to build. At the same time, many of our compatriots are sure that structures made of more durable materials are suitable for our climate.
Frame garages, like frame houses, have gained popularity in recent years. This is due to the exceptional speed of construction, lower cost and environmental friendliness. In general, the advantages of the framework look like this:
- the ability to quickly build with your own hands;
- use of environmentally friendly materials;
- all-season construction work.
In order to build a wooden slab garage, there is no need to build a foundation, which makes the construction extremely cheap. And since this is not a residential building, they also save on insulation.
Of course, it was not without drawbacks. So, skeletons are not well suited for areas with strong winds or exceptionally low temperatures in winter. In the latter case, they will still require warming.
Due to its stability and reliability, brick is still the most common building material for the construction of not only private houses, but also garages.
Having chosen a brick, the first step is to build a foundation for a garage. The most suitable is tape. Since the weight of the brick structure is quite large, the depth is chosen at least half a meter. The average is a metre. Width – a little less than half a meter. The foundation is reinforced with reinforcement and rubble stone, after which it is poured with concrete.
After the concrete foundation has dried, which occurs after two to three weeks, the laying of the walls begins. For a garage, a thickness of one and a half bricks is considered sufficient. To calculate the exact number of bricks, they resort to a simple formula: multiply the width of the wall by its thickness and height and divide by the volume of a standard brick product (usually, it is 0. 00195 cubic meters).
Building a garage from foam blocks is preferred by those who appreciate the speed of work and do not have a large enough budget. This material combines lightness with large dimensions. As a result, one block can replace up to six bricks.
In practice, such features of this building material lead to the fact that it becomes possible to save on the foundation. The light weight of the structure allows the construction of its lightest type. As for the thickness of the masonry, one block is enough.
The construction of walls from aerated concrete blocks, in general terms, does not differ from the construction of foam blocks. Only a slightly larger weight of this material is taken into account.
Preparatory work in the construction of a garage structure is not much different from those carried out during the construction of a house.
First of all, determine the size of the required area and clear it of debris. If necessary, then also level the soil. After that, mark in accordance with the drawings. If construction involves the creation of a foundation, note its location (places for digging trenches or driving piles).
Purchase building materials based on preliminary calculations of the volume of the building.
Stages of construction of object
Garage building milestones:
- preparatory work;
- foundation erection;
- erection of a plinth;
- building walls;
- construction of floors, if necessary;
- roof construction.
The foundation is erected based on the dimensions of the structure and its estimated weight. As noted above, a brick building requires a more powerful foundation than a frame building. Some garages are built with plinths, so they are equipped immediately after the foundation is ready.
The walls are erected taking into account the type of building – it is one-story or has an additional floor. This moment also affects the construction of the roof, including the choice of its preferred design.
When building a garage, it is necessary to take into account a number of potential errors that can even lead to the destruction of the building, not to mention inconvenience in operation.
- The first problem is incorrect installation of the gate. The point is not only in size, but also in the need to strengthen them.
- The second point is the wrong width of the brickwork joints. Do not allow it to be less than 10 centimeters.
- The third point is the lack of a separate entrance to the utility block. Car owners often do not understand how convenient it is to have it.
Considering these and other nuances will make using a brand new garage much more comfortable.
Two-car garage is a great solution not only for owners of two vehicles. This design makes it possible to save on materials and communications.
