Garage ideas

I was wondering if you guys had any recommendations for garage kits? I'm looking for something budget minded, and enough room for two cars

Whichever way you end up going, I do recommend you keep enough space open for your snow blower (or two eventually ).

Oh, I hate to admit this publicly, but we keep one car in our 2.5 car garage, the rest is my space for keeping the homestead up, including keeping 2 blowers, a lawn tractor, lawn mower, air compressor, table saw, miter saw, chainsaw, chimney sweep gear, extension ladders, summer tires mounted on wheels (8), and two 1967 125 Benelli motorcycles...:

Not a safe space...just my space. Unheated though

My work-in-progress.

28x20 garage. I would highly recommend 24' depth. It's been over 20 years since I had a full size truck, so I ended up going 20' for depth. Super budget restricted at the time. I can live with 28' width, the 20 depth is tight.

I do a fair amount of woodworking so equip space is important to me. One car in, one car out.

2 blowers...in.

You can't go too big. (period)

I'm in 24 X 48 and with 3 cars under cover and a 12' bay isolated as a heated workshop it's OK but I'd love to double the shop size. The tractor is out in it's own shed and other that a few snowblowers in rotation they are out in the Gilson Castle, another 26 X40 of space.


I'd seriously consider extending the roof line on the back of a new garage down to a 4' knee wall. That's a lot of cheap floor space for equipment.
