hi there anything is possible, you 'll need drawings and a permit, which the architect, will investigate, wheather or not its worth saving the current foundation, cheers joe

Joe is correct. A test dig would have to be done to ascertain whether the existing foundation and footings is satisfactory and planning/permit depart would like an architect or engineer's stamped opinion in this regard. From our experience, older garages do not have sufficient footings to support an addition nor do they have a weeping tile system that would be required.
