Dimensions of a Two Car Garage Detached

One of the first questions a potential prefab car garage customer might ask is “What are the dimensions of a two car garage?” That is certainly a valid question and one that might vary according to location and the possible uses of the prefab two car garage.

The smallest dimensions of a two car garage which we recommend would be a 20×20 Two Car Garage. This allows for the placement of two 8’x7′ Overhead garage doors in addition to an entrance door and two windows on the sidewalls. Sheds Unlimited also offers the option of upgrading to a 16’x7′ Door versus two 8’x7′ doors. While a 20×20 two car garage can house two cars, it will likely be a tight fit to place two cars in the building. For that reason, we recommend going just a bit larger on your DIMENSIONS OF A TWO CAR GARAGE to a 24×24 building. By choosing this size you will have room and some to spare. Extra room in a two car garage will most likely be appreciated in the future.

However, before going ahead and buying a prefab two car garage from the Amish in PA, First, you will need to check with your town to discover what their restrictions are in regards to the typical dimensions of a two car garage on your property. As mentioned, this will certainly vary from town to town. Some will allow installing a 2 car garage with attic space or a two-story garage with a full second floor. Other might restrict homeowners to a single car garage. 

Next, it is important to consider what your plans are for the 2, 3 or 4 car garage. Do you plan to simply use it for storing one or two cars or would you like extra space in the garage? If you plan to use the one bay for a car or truck garage, then the second bay will be open for lawn mower storage or it could be used as a boat garage. However, if you plan to use a two car garage to store two cars, then you might want to consider adding a few more feet to your garage for extra storage space or a workbench on the one wall.

To add extra space to two or three vehicle garage, upgrade to a Legacy Two Story Garage model or simply add an attic space on the roof are of your prefab car garage from Sheds Unlimited. This will enhance the users of the two car garage, but again, be aware that this will change the overall height dimensions of the two car garage, so be sure to check with your town on their restrictions.

As always, Sheds Unlimited is here to assist you with these important decisions. We offer free advice and a free set of drawings to go with your building. These free garage plans can be taken to your local town to assist in receiving the approval needed and to ensure that the two car garage size passes the codes in your local town.

Just a note to say I am very pleased with the shed built on site at my home. The crew that came worked fast and professionally.
The shed is beautiful and suits my needs for my Harleys well.

In the future you should tell your sales team to advise customers building motorcycle storage sheds to use 3/4 ply wood on the floor rather than the 5/8 provided.
the weight of a motorcycle on the small area of a kickstand makes the 5/8 ply wood sag, especially when in the middle of two framing studs. I put another layer of 5/8 in my shed and it is solid as a rock.

Thanks again for your efforts

The experience with Sheds Unlimited was professional and easy from start to finish. I needed a very specific size shed, and my wife wanted something that was very attractive. Sheds Unlimited customized our shed with every detail. It is very well made, and good looking. The delivery was as promised and very professionally done. The "mule" delivery system allowed for great flexibility to maneuver around trees, and the shed was positioned perfectly on the base. A piece of trim was damaged, and they had a repairman out in no time to replace the piece. It was a no-hassle experience from start to finish in addition to offering a great customized shed at a fair price. I would not hesitate to recommend Sheds Unlimited.

We live in northern Maryland and based on prior reviews, we decided to go with Sheds Unlimited. These guys know what they're doing - When it was time for delivery these guys maneuvered our 8' X 10' shed and placed it on the pad perfectly. The shed is beautiful and well-made and we are very happy with Sheds Unlimited quality and service.

Russell from Timonium, MD

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!!!

Great experience with Sheds Unlimited from inquiring, ordering, follow up and delivery. The shed is just as ordered. Beautifully made. Delivery guys arrived as scheduled, and perfectly placed. Very happy and definitely recommend Sheds Unlimited to others. Thank you.

John from Long Island

What a beautifully built shed. Well constructed, very pleasant company to deal with, and top notch delivery. I would recommend them to everyone!

Donna Reynolds from Flemington NJ

The crew did an excellent job. For three days from 7 am t0 6 pm they worked quickly and efficiently. Since I'm retired I was able to watch most of their activity. Roofers usually use 5 nails per shingle – your crew used 8 and 9. Thanks Gid and guys – great job, great garage.

It was a pleasure to buy a shed from a company that knows customers service. The ordering process was so EZ and the delivery was so simple with there delivery mule. Every other shed company just wanted to drop the shed in the driveway and I was responsible for getting it in the back yard for about the same price. The construction of the shed was top notch.
Thank You Sheds Unlimited, I would highly recommend you to anyone.

Monroe W. from Berlin

I got to warn you that if you buy a shed from these guys the first thing you will want to do Is order another one. only bigger!!
I love sheds and I love building them and honestly I never thought I would be buying a pre-made. But as it turned out I didn't have a choice and I'm glad I didn't or else I might never have found SU. Excellent, excellent job from ordering to planning scheduling, delivering, quality and price. Trust me You can't wrong!

Peter from 21 Evans Drive, Cranbury NJ

you guys are the best!

everyone on the phone was great in helping us pick out the right shed and worked with us through a couple changes.

you were significantly less expensive than our local 'discount' shed stores.

your installer was super nice and nestled the shed right into a pretty tight spot in the backyard.

the shed is great and we could not have asked for a better experience.

thanks again,

- Paul
