Question: I want to add a garage to my property. Are there any rules which limit where I can place it on my property?
Answer: Yes, there are. Usually you must be so many feet away from your house and any other buildings. There are usually set back requirements from the front, back and sides of the property. There are usually rules on how large and how high. Each city and township is different. It is best to call your local building department or zoning official. They will be helpful and provide you with their code’s requirements.
