When it comes to building residential garages, there are a lot of options. Homeowners may choose to build either an attached or a detached garage. If a homeowner decides to build an attached garage, they must follow the home addition regulations of their area and seek a construction permit. For those who choose to build a detached garage, a construction permit may still be necessary. The overall expected size of the garage will play a large part in determining whether or not a permit is needed. Smaller garages may require a subject-to-field inspection permit versus a traditional construction permit. This type of permit generally costs less than a traditional permit, but detached garages must meet specific local regulation requirements to qualify.
