OK, just wanting a reality check on what other people's By-laws permit and what other people think is reasonable for the size of a garage/accessory building in a residential (single or two unit) neighbourhood.
Our By-law permits 80.5 square metres (866 sq. feet) or 10% of the lot area whichever is less. This building size allows for a typical building of 24*36 feet.
[EDIT]If it is attached to thee main dwelling unit there is no limit in size as it is part of the house. (minor exceptions realted to lot coverage and setbacks not withstanding).[/EDIT]
What do your By-laws say and what do you think is reasonable?
The reason i am asking is that my employer granted a variance last night to allow for a building with an area of 1120 square feet saying that that seemed like a reasonable request.
