Hi, we just received our prelim drawings and we are planning for a garage with a roller door at the back, so that we can drive a car/boat/digger through into the backyard. The Drawing has made an allowance for a 3.6m path down the side of the house. Is this too wide? what are others doing in terms of width?

To put it in perspective a typical single car garage is 3.0m wide and this is just enough room to open the doors ect.
I'd say stick with 3.6m unless it is compromising your internal areas.
Hope this helps!

my current house does not have a drive through garage. But my parent's old home did. We actually had a 4m wide space, that way we can have a car parked there and us kids can still play around/near it safely etc.
I would say stick with 3.6m too.

If it's 3.6m where you'll want to be putting the boat/whatever, then yeah stick with that.
However if that's just an access path to get to where the boat/whatever will be parked, it can be narrower. Our side drive narrows down to 2.5m & I've had delivery trucks (pantechs not semi's!) reverse up that … but there's not really enough room to comfortably park there & open doors.
