New Private Construction Minimum ADA garage width ?


The City has just complete an "Affordable Housing Project" with 13 free standing houses. They have marketed to the public that 2 of the homes are ADA compliant. When I pulled the car into the garage, there was not enough width for me to open the car door and put together my wheelchair, exit the car and then enter the house thru the garage...Is this new home NOT ada compliant ? Are there any codes for Minimum width for a Garage in an ADA "Accesable Home" They told me the whole place would be accesable and now I find that it is not. I think its too late for them to
knock out the wall to make the garage wider as it is a retaining wall? Does anyone know about this ?

I'm not sure there are any ADA regs for single family residences so I don't think any home can be sold as ADA compliant. A home can have accessible design features. You should point out the obvious problem. They surely won't fix this house but may make adjustments to the next one. You didn't buy this house without making sure it fit your needs did you?

ADA homepage: http://www.ada.gov/

ADA is geared towards public & commercial properties

PDF guidelines, pg 81 has parking spaces

http://www.ada.gov/adastd94.pdf

I didn't see anything as far as a garage
Kinda of strange that they would miss this
