Can you build switchback stairs from garage to 2nd floor living space?

Hi everyone,

I am planning on having a 2 car garage built with a living space above it (1300-1500 sq ft living space). I would love to have switch back stairs(like in a split level) from garage to 2nd floor living space. The draftsman is saying that is not possible and suggests L shaped stairs. The ceiling will be 9 feet in garage. Has anyone ever done this or know if it can be done? The steps will be enclosed with a door at the bottom and stairs inside to living space. I want it to look more like a house!

Any help is greatly appreciated!!! I know this is unique but would be so cool!
