This is not applicable in all cases but you have to be certain if your localities does have certain regulations regarding constructing sheds or garages. Some areas does have statutes being implemented that requires homeowners to acquire a permit should they wish to build additional structures in their yard.
Most localities impose this regulation only if the shed or garage you are planning to build is of a particular size or more. Size may vary in different areas so you have to check this on your local zoning department just to make sure you won't be penalized for it.
Size is also another important matter to consider as well. You need to survey the area where you're planning to build the garage. Additionally, your budget for this project would also be an important factor in deciding the size of the garage. Obviously, bigger garage would cost you more.
Moreover, consider as well the workshop you are going to build as this is one of the main purpose of the garage. Aside from this, you may also want to give an allowance for an additional space for storage perhaps or parking area. Whichever the case, you need to consider this to decide on the specific size of your garage.
