Buy a 12x24 Portable Garage in PA

Are you looking for a space to store your vehicle plus a little space to tinker around? Then you may want to consider the 12x24 portable garage. The 12x24 garage is a compact garage that offers enough space for one average-sized vehicle, plus a bit of extra space for a workbench and a few other garden tools. Get even more out of your garage by adding loft space or a full attic. 

In this post we will cover the following:

  1. What are some "don't miss" features on a portable garage?
  2. What can I fit into a 12x24 Single Car Garage?
  3. How can I get more space out of my 12x24 Garage?
  4. What is the price of a 12x24 Portable Garage
  5. Where can I find a portable garage near me?

#1. What are some "don't miss" features on a portable garage?

A Heavy Floor is a must for a 12x24 portable garage. Without having a proper garage floor it can stress the floor out causing it to not hold up in the long run. 

A proper example of what a garage floor should look like is a 12" on the center floor joist, however, if you want to go more heavy-duty, an 8" on the center will give you the weight you need.

A Pressure Treated Garage Floor

A pressure treated floor is another valuable addition to include on your 12x24 prefab garage. These types of floors will help slow down natural decay and they also have properties that help resist termites, fungus, and many other properties that cause degradation.

Ventilation and Temperature Control for your Garage

Venting is a very popular option on a 12x24 portable garage. Choose between gable vents or ridge vent to keep the interior of your new portable garage cooler during the hot days of summer.

Another great option to consider is TechShield Sheathing. This product has a foil backed interior which helps deflect heat waves coming from the roof of your garage. This, combined with venting makes a huge difference in keeping your portable garage temperature-controlled and comfortable. If you were to build a workspace inside of your 12x24 prefab garage, you would want ventilation to be cool in the summer but stay warm in the winter.

#2. What can I fit into a 12x24 Single Car Garage?

It depends on your roof style, a bigger and wider roof means more space.

For starters, a 12x24 garage is good for one average-sized car along with some extra workspace. As seen in the image on the left, one average-sized vehicle, a four-wheeler, and a workbench were all able to fit in the 12x24 portable garage.

#3. How can I get more space out of my 12x24 Garage?

That might sound like a strange question! Doesn't every 12x24 have 288 square feet of space? True, but there are things to do that can help make more space inside the building. Read on to find out more. 

12x24 garage with loft

One easy and very cost-effective thing you can do for more space in a 12x24 portable garage is to add a loft space. A loft space allows you to store items overhead so it does not clutter the walking area. Since this space is wasted space otherwise, you can get more out of the same 288 square feet of the building.

Adding a loft to your 12x24 one-car garage will not only give you more space, however, but it will also add value to your garage if you ever decide to sell it in the future.

In addition, roof styles can make a big difference in how much overhead space you will get with a loft. 

Next, we'll show you a few roof styles and highlight the differences between them. Please note that not all of these styles may be available in your local area.

Recently purchased a 10x12 wooden mini-barn. The price/quality was far better than other options I researched... I could get the same quality for much more money, or pay the same price for an inferior product. Thankfully, I didn't have to make either of those choices because I got a great price and superb quality from Sheds Unlimited. Ordering was easy, delivery was faster than the original estimate, installation was quick, and we are loving having the extra space for our lawn and garden stuff. Now I can put my car in the garage!

I'd also like to say that we had Gideon do the pad. He is the guy who is recommended at the Sheds Unlimited website... and we were also very, very happy with his work and price. He beat 2 other estimates by hundreds of dollars, and did the work quicker than either of them said they could do it.

All in all, this was a rare event for a consumer these days, in that all of our expectations were exceeded.

Mike Challman from Wayne, PA

I looked around at many other manufacturers and these by far where the best quality sheds. Product was delivered earlier than expected and delivered in a precise and safe manner. Highly recommend Sheds Unlimited!

Keith from Shillington Pa

The best experience ever. Chose Sheds unlimited over our local guy. Easy process from ordering to delivery and setup.

Bill from Selkirk NY

My shed was delivered yesterday just 7 weeks from the day it was ordered. It is not only exactly what I ordered but it exceeds my expectations. The product quality, customer service and delivery are exemplary. I will HIGHLY recommend Sheds Unlimited to any and all of my family, relatives, neighbors and friends who may be in the market for a shed or other type of outdoor building.

Had Shed's Unlimited build a custom garage for me. I have built 3 homes over my lifetime, and found my experience with Delmar and James very positive. There were a couple of glitches (no surprise) and they handled the problems that arose with excellent responsiveness. Overall, the company's personnel that worked on site were efficient and pleasant. Once on site this custom garage was erected in just two days. The overall result was of excellent quality and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. I am a very pleased customer!

To begin with I had great confidence in Sheds Unlimited before even meeting them or talking to them. Having a Pennsylvania German ancestry, which is not that different from the Amish, I know how hardworking this group is. Both of my parents grew up on farms and it was always work before pleasure. Sheds Unlimited did a very thorough job of making sure I got the exact shed that I wanted. They were in touch with a lot of planning questions to make sure I was happy with what I got and were very specific and detailed. And when the 2 men arrived here with the material to build the shed, I could tell right away that they were going to do a good job. One of the young men was Amish and even though he was nice and polite, he worked every single second he was here without taking any breaks. The shed was up and complete in a couple hours. The work ethic of the Amish is similar to the Pennsylvania German work ethic and they did not disappoint. And of course the shed looks great. You will be glad you hired Sheds Unlimited.

Steve Bubbenmoyer from Rehoboth Beach

Outstanding quality shed. Even the 4x4 runners were painted.The communication from the headquarters was excellent. Mule delivery was impressive. I researched for several weeks and could not find a better quality shed with various options in this price range.

Oh boy, what a team you sent to construct our 24x24 garage!!! Zack, Mark, and Daniel worked so well together. They arrived at 6:30 AM and departed at 7:30 PM! I love the final product and will send pictures in a few months, when our rescued old house has been restored. I could not be more pleased with the garage we purchased and your super team constructed!!!

John Bendele from Newport, Kentucky

Using sheds unlimited was the best decision I ever made.   My shed is beautiful well made and the whole process was unbelievably easy.   My shed was delivered in three weeks.  They came in one day and put it  together.  I rent to work and came home and it was there.   No mess nothing left behind.   My neighbors were also surprised and couldn't believe in a few hours it was done.   I love it and couldn't be happier!     Do not hesitate to use them the best price for your money.  My husband and son said the builders were the nicest two guys ever!    

Lisa rainone from Queens ny

The shed is excellent .Unfortunately the deliverer did not align the shed evenly on the base . It was raining and I think he wanted the job done quickly . Really spoils the appearance!!!! Can you fix this??
