Unless it’s a historic district I think you can probably build a garage. There are just a lot of hoops to jump through. Start by looking at the DC zoning map. Here is the link: http://maps.dcoz.dc.gov/
If you click on a house and then click “Click to View Full Report” then you can see more information on what you can build. It sounds like you’re looking at zone 1-A or zone 1-B. In that case you can probably build a garage and even have a rental apartment above it if you like.
