    Soil against garage walls

    Intended 6*3 garage build would need removing soil nigh on 1 mrt high just to get to ground level. That would entail also building a garden wall. I'm ok doing that on the side with a path but at the rear can I put anything inbetween blocks and soil to prevent damp.Thanks

    First I take it building garage with blocks laid on flat side is easier then on edge? Also is this better insulation than inner wood frame with insulation of some kind. (Part of the garage would be a small room. Thanks

    Thanks for replies. Ignore windows etc on pics as its not going there, just easier to take pics. The bungalow is around 60 yrs old with 60/70 mm cavity. The walls would not take heavy fixings. Bungalow rafters main weight is on inner wall. I also know planning would not agree to going above...
