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.

Our local zoning board had a ton of requirements that resulted in us changing our shed order 3 times. Sheds Unlimited was very flexible and helpful. In the end we love our shed and are happy that we went to Shed's Unlimited to get it. We highly recommend.

Diane from Prospect Park, PA

Overall experience was excellent. Website was great, ordering was very easy, delivery updates were very professional and the delivery guy was amazing with his placement of my 10x14 shed in less than 15 minutes. Everyone I spoke to was very knowledgeable, respectful, and pleasant to deal with. Could not ask for a better experience, would recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone.

Jeff from Moorestown, NJ

We recently had a two car garage installed. The two guys from Sheds unlimited, Gideon and Mark were unbelievable! They worked so hard and had the garage up in one day. They were also super nice and easy to work with. John, who we dealt with during the design process was also great. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. Our garage is beautiful.

Vicente and Gillian Frontinan from Medford, MA

beautiful job - these guy did a great job and built our garage in one day. They even custom matched the colors of our house. many people have commented how nice our new garage looks and how well built it is

rache d from Dorset vermont

We just got our new 12' X 24' shed and we love it! Well constructed - great craftsmanship - and very, very attractive. Style and colors complement our home perfectly. Will be a much needed place to store items and to woodwork. Company very pleasant and professional.
And the Mule is an amazing invention!!

Steven D from Old Lyme CT

Very impressed with the workmanship and quality of my shed. The delivery guys were great. The entire process from design to delivery was 5 stars! Highly recommend and would order again should the need arise.

Tom from Masonville NY

The price was the main reason I picked Sheds Unlimited to begin, and was worried that the quality might be lacking. They brought the shed early, which really helped me out, and it looks great - very sturdy.

Lowell from West Chester, PA

I had a small saltbox shed delivered recently to my newly purchased home. The man who delivered it was the NICEST guy (he was one of the owners)!! Due to having to reschedule the delivery b/c of rain, he was willing to wait 2 hours for me to arrive to the house (since I have not moved in yet and had to drive out to meet him)!

Once he unloaded the shed he really struggled getting it up the hills in my yard, due to the early morning dew. But nonetheless, he persisted and persisted, figuring out a way to finally make it work. I was so impressed with him!! And I was thoroughly pleased with the shed! Very well constructed and it looks really nice! And the cherry on top of my sunday was discovering the windows actually slide open and have screens! I think this is a great company with quality products and would definitely buy from them again! Thank you!!!

Kimberly from West Chester, PA

Very happy and satisfied with our shed. Customer service was awesome. Great follow through with phone calls and any questions. Would highly recommend.

Thank you very much for delivery of the first of three sheds today.

The shed is oustnading; even better than the excelelnt product we anticpated !

The whole experience has been outstanding:

- your service in helping us design exactly what we needed, over many minor changes on our part, was truly superb: Professional, patient, presistent, and precise.

- the delivery person who brought the shed and installed it was truly outstanding: Focusd , courteous, skilled, and careful (RARE combination these days!) we would welcome this same installation person tomorrow as well as he was VERY careful and considerate of the property, trees, plants, etc...even carefully navigating around bushes inches from the shed site.

- the final product is excellent. high quality, visually beatiful and really a complement to our house.

We look forward to receiving the remaining two sheds tomorrow.

Please feel free to post these comments anywhere you would like.

- Steve
