Building a new garage, whether detached or attached, is a one of those things that will most likely cause you to say, “I should have done this years ago.” A garage not only offers you practical benefits on a daily basis, it also significantly increases the overall value of your property.
Although we offer a huge selection of garage plans (over 400 designs), that feature one to three bays, most people are drawn to the 2-car, or two-bay designs. As with all of our garage designs, our 2-car plans come in an extensive variety of styles and configurations. Some have lofts, workshops and even full apartments incorporated into the design.
The most common question asked about garage plans is, “Do you think this garage will fit two cars comfortably?” The answer to this question, of course, is in the size of the family’s vehicles. Two “Hummers” are going to require a bit more space than two “Bugs.” Measure the height and width of the vehicles that you currently own – or anticipate owning, or check the vehicles’ specifications in their owner’s manuals, or online. Your reasons for building a new garage are uniquely your own, so carefully evaluate your current and anticipated requirements regarding the structure’s size.
Generally, the minimum recommended size of a 2-car garage is approximately 20 ft. wide and 20 ft. deep. When considering your 2-car garage design, go bigger when possible. You will never regret having the additional storage space for bicycles, a lawnmower, garden tools, sporting equipment, etc.
