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.

Without reservation, I recommend Shed's Unlimited for your next project! I'm almost 60 and I must say the work ethic, skill, and speed exceed what I have been used to. No time wasted, and no corners cut! I would use them again in a heartbeat! They arrive on time and had my 24' x 48', 4 car, finished in 12 hours, locked and cleaned up and off they went. The web site is thorough and no exaggerations.
Thanks Again!!!

Larry P. from Ithaca, NY

My shed was just recently delivered and I couldn't be happier. Easy order, delivery was quicker than estimated, and the quality seems outstanding. The entire process has met and exceeded my expectations. Will definitely extend the referral to friends.

A very nice experience all around. The people on the phone were very nice and most helpful. The delivery people were very polite. Getting the shed into the back yard went very smoothly. Would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone.

This is the second shed that I have bought from Sheds Unlimited as I have moved twice in the last 5 years. I think the quality of the workmanship, materials and ease of ordering make them a winner every time. Pricing is as good if not better than anything that you can find at Home Depot or Lowes but the quality of the product is far superior. Thanks again for a great shed and buying experience.

Jeff Strauss from Whippany, NJ

It was such an easy process from when I chose my shed to the delivery. We had about a 1/2 “ clearance on each end and Nate fit it right though. We are very happy and would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited!

Dave A from Clifton Park NY

Before I ordered my shed from Sheds Unlimited I tried many other local suppliers/builders but they were unresponsive or extremely expensive. Working with Sheds Unlimited was a pleasure. They answered the phone, responded quickly and professionally and supplied and delivered a quality shed that suited my needs perfectly. I would highly recommend them.

Vincent Kopicki from Valhalla, NY

john krickbaum from Catonsville md

I had been trying to make time for two years to build my own. With the winter approaching quickly and still no time with kids sports I decided to purchase. I went to three local distributors and was frustrated with the choices and constraints. I found sheds unlimited in a google search and looked them over. Ordering the shed in the configuration and colors was fast and easy. I got the shed I wanted in two weeks. I couldn't be happier with the quality and design. I already recommended sheds unlimited to a buddy. Great job

darren stienstra from Springfield pa

We had a wonderful experience with the staff at Sheds Unlimited. All were very knowledgeable, helpful and pleasant to work with. John helped us to design and customize a premier one car garage that we could not be happier with. Shane did a great job getting the shed into place and installing the finishing touches. The entire staff was top notch. The new garage really dresses up our back yard and we are so excited to use it. We highly recommend Sheds Unlimited. You will not be disappointed.

Courtney from Morgantown, PA

Having seen an example on my neighbor's property, I knew the quality of the products produced by Sheds Unlimited would be flawless. Thus the more important point would be the customer service I would receive. From the first phone call where all my questions were answered and I was assisted in every aspect of ordering the correct shed to meet my needs, I knew this was one great company. The shed is perfect, the delivery person was efficient and personable. I could not be happier with the experience and would highly recommend this company to all.
