As a typology, the carriage house (or accessory dwelling unit) has been restricted by-right to be built in Detroit as a provision of it’s zoning code since the 1970s. As of 2020 however, the City plans to revise this provision to allow carriage houses to be constructed in specific Detroit neighborhoods.
