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.

I put in my order and a few weeks later we have our lovely barn delivered in our backyard. The service was beyond excellent, they listened to my needs and specs and give me exactly what I asked for. I could not have gotten a shed of this size and value from third party seller. So, I encourage you to contact them for your next shed.

Thank you again for the wonderful service I received.

Janet Archer from Temple Hills, MD

Good Price, Perfect delivery, exactly what I ordered and exceptional quality. What more can you ask for? Hurricane Sandy came and destroyed our area, but the shed is standing perfect. Thank you Sheds Unlimited!

After being told by another vendor that because I had a Belgium Blocks around the driveway I would have to do a build on site at 25% increase I luckily found sheds unlimited. It took 6 weeks to get my delivery, but it worth it, the 12' x 20' shed is almost perfection! It came with missing shudders on one side but they offered me credit off the amount due or for them to ship them to me. The design process is no nonsense, there is no salesmanship involved, you get what you ask for, the delivery is easy. I highly recommend sheds unlimited!

Sam from East Brunswick, NJ

All good - they did everything they said they would. By taking advantage of some of their promotions, I was able to get a larger shed in vinyl for less than I could have locally for a smaller all wood one. The delivery process was very professional.

Michael Cronin from Jamesport, new york

Looks great. Plenty of storage space. Delivered exactly when specified. Price reasonable. Good people to deal with! I am Happy, Happy Happy

James Yunker Sr from Oxford Pa

Excellent Job! Delivered as promised, very well built. The whole process went very smoothly. Thanks so much for my new, awesome, 20' x 32' garage with 10' walls, 2x6 construction, scissor truss 12' inside center ceiling height, custom window configurations, metal roof, etc.

Brian Ames from Philadelphia PA

Where do i start? I was looking for a shed in MD for more than 4 months before i happened to find these guys on an internet search while looking for shed pad instructions.

Service:
I eventually ordered a custom sized A-shed, 7' x 12', from them and was given a 3-5 week time frame for delivery. The shed was dropped off at my house 3 weeks from the order. Perfect placement, very minor skid mark on my lawn (nothing seed and water couldn't fix), polite delivery service, VERY easy ordering process and the colors are amazing! (light grey body with red shutters and beige trim).

Construction:
As I stated earlier, I found these guys online and I never visited their location to see build quality. During ordering i asked the rep to send me pictures of the interior to see what their frame work, etc. looked like and I was convinced enough to take the jump. Let me say this, those pictures paled in comparison to the real thing. The studs were perfectly straight, no random nails or screws anywhere, i got the standard flooring which i was able to paint with some textured patio paint.

Price:
I was looking for months and these prices cannot be beat. What I liked about Sheds Unlimited was the fact that their prices are on the site, no tricks and frills. You want something added, you know what it's going to cost before you call. LOVE THAT!

Community Impact:
Upon delivery I was first concerned that some neighbors would complain about the size of the shed, however it was quite the opposite. I met people who i've never spoken to before, that just came out to compliment how it looked and the build quality. Usually I would pull builder advertising off my property, but I left the "Sheds Unlimted" logo with the phone number on my shed. I even put a light near to it so it's easily seen. The value that I've gotten from this "simple task" of buying a shed is incredible.

I would highly recommend them to anyone and I have even seen people taking note of their number from my shed!

Thank you!!

Eversley from Towson

I shopped extensively and did my homework looking for a shed. I had to since I hadn't owned a shed before and am I glad I did. I demanded high quality craftsmenship at the best price and you guys exceeded my expectations for both. You delivered it on time, set it wear I needed it to go on my property all for a very reasonable price. Also your delivery guy took extra care as to not negatively impact my grounds during the installation. Well done Sheds Unlimited ! R.L.

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

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!!!
