    Question Our builder says a garage door will not pass inspection???

    We are having a modular home built with a concrete garage underneath with 2 garage doors. I want a door put in on the back side of the garage so I can access the garage from the backyard. He said because of the slant of the yard he would have to put in a retainer wall and he doesnt want to do that due to cost or something. So I suggested that he put the door up higher with a step or two going up to it and down to garage floor. My builder said that he could not do that because it would weaken the concrete and not pass inspection??? Can't you frame in the door someway so that doesn't happen??? The garage has not been built yet. Really need this door but not alot of extra money.

    Anything is possible Judy; however in your case what you desire may be beyond your builder’s capabilities or your bank balance? Whoever did the design on your home are the ones I would talk to.
