Dimensions for One-Car GarageWe own a single family, one story home in Los Angeles. We don't have a garage as it was converted into a bedroom by a previous owner. We don't have the property to build a detached 2-car garage but may have the space for an attached one car. Questions: Are we better off just building a carport instead of a one-car garage (very few houses in the area have one-car garages, most have 2-car and some even have 3-car) Also, what are the minimum specs for a one-car (width, length) and also, does anyone know the minimum amount of space we would need to keep between the attached garage and the side wall of our property? I believe our dog run on the other side is about 5ft wide. Any opinions and advice are appreciated.February 11 2008 - US11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
