Yes, if the garage is attached, it would not be considered a separate structure. So, you would have to build an extension on the house that incorporated the garage. Then it would not count as a separate structure and you are good.

Please rate 4 or 5 and close out the question. Good luck to you. I wish you all the best.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
