#1. What are some “don’t miss” features on a portable garage?

A Heavy Floor is a must for a 12×24 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 12×24 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 12×24 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 12×24 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 12×24 Single Car Garage?

It depends on your roof style, a bigger and wider roof means more space. For starters, a 12×24 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 12×24 portable garage.

#3. How can I get more space out of my 12×24 Garage?

That might sound like a strange question! Doesn’t every 12×24 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. 

One easy and very cost-effective thing you can do for more space in a 12×24 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 12×24 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. You can read about different garage roof styles in this article.

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.
