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.

I bought a garage from Sheds Unlimited a year ago, and I am still very pleased. Everything was just as I had specified. They were very easy to work with, and the price was competetive.
Even though it was a large ('24 x '48) building, their crew had it up in a day. Even our county buulding inspector commented on the quality of the workmanship. Everyone who sees my garage loves it.
Sheds Unlimited is an honest, concientious firm. I would reccomend them to anyone!

I absolutely loved working with Sheds Unlimited. First off, there's no high pressure sales when shopping for buildings. It's easy to build a structure right on your computer and get a quote. With all the changes I kept making Kyle was quick to email back with the prices and specs. No hidden costs or fees, everyhing was prices to the ecact penny. The delivery was quick and flawless..I unfortunately do not know the drivers name (I was dealing with AJ in construction and delivery) but regardless he was incredible about getting the building into a tight spot. 

The building is wll constructed...I love it. Cannot wait to get this mancave finished.

Mark,

I just wanted to thank you for the pleasant experience of working with you start to finish purchasing my shed. It took me some time to finally nail down exactly what I was looking for, but taking the time I am more than pleased with my building. You always showed patience and provided me with every option possible and finally we did it! Thanks again!

I got a new 12X8 she's from sheds unlimited this summer and the entire process was easy as could be. sales rep was great over the phone it was delivered on time and cause of my backyard situation they had to build it onsite as opposed to dropping it down built. the crew was awesome only took them a couple of hours built it painted it and cleaned up perfectly!! no better shed company out there to use period! 

Dan from New Jersey

Wiring with Sheds unlimited was wonderful! They made the shed buying process so easy seamless. I would highly recommend them! The shed is a very nice quality. I am very happy with my purchase!

Susan Omeara from PA

Borught this shed over the phone after viewing pictures sent via email. I do alot woodworking and I was very happy with Shed - looks great, well constructed and a great value. The deliverer (Shane I beleive) did a really great job using the shed muhle and navigating into the back yard. Took a while, but he was pesistent and finally made back. Thanks!!!

Bill from Barnegat Light, NJ

This is our second shed from them. It takes awhile to get a shed but it is well worth the wait. They are a quality shed with 2x4 studs on 16" centers. We get pressure treated flooring. The doors close nicely and the windows slide up and down easily. We have 2 lofts in both of the sheds and that adds a lot of extra storage. My shed also has a bench which is my work bench. It's fun to watch them unload the sheds and move them to their sites! I couldn't be happier!

Harold Delaney from S. Jersey

They really made it easy. The ordering was taken care of by people who know the products. They worked with us on a delivery for us and two of my neighbors who also ordered. The shed was off the truck and in my yard in 20 minutes. So cool to watch the mule. Thanks to Nelson and all the staff people for a quick delivery and a high quality shed.

Alice from Edison NJ

Spent a lot of time in research on what shed to get for my back yard. I couldn't be happier with my choice of Sheds Unlimited . From materials used to delivery and setup great experience all the way. The shed looks great and thank goodness for the mule otherwise I would have had to have it made on site at a higher cost. If your in the market for a shed you can't do better then Sheds Unlimited.
