Alley garages

I have another question and want to get peoples opinions and if anyone has actually done it. Question is we are looking into creating a car-spot/garage at the back of a house we want, do i have to get a permit from the city if yes how long does that take? the house has an alley behind it several homes have garages already, we dont so what is the actual process do we start digging up the space, do we need permits ??? any info would be great

  1. You definitely need permits before you start any construction. It’s likely that the existing garages on your block were built before the current requirements were in effect, so you’d likely have to go through the process to get variances that would let you build yours as close to the property line as they might be.
