Creating attractive, marketable homes for lots with tight setbacks is a matter of give and take among the builder, the architect, the neighbors, and city zoning and planning authorities.
Lots with tight setbacks raise many design issues including aesthetics, privacy, light, views, and parking. Then there are zoning ordinances and building and fire codes to consider. Suburban infill locations, too, are subject to restrictions on the amount of front-, rear-, and side-yard space as well as the height of the structure. It takes design creativity, fortitude, and flexibility to cope with these situations.
