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.

Ordered my 12x14 Shed from Sheds Unlimited. Ordered a kit style due to a fence issue getting into my backyard. The kit came very nicely packed and no damage. I soon realized that the door style that I thought I order was not the style shipped. I contacted customer service and they offered to drive up the right doors the next day and exchange them. I was shocked that they were willing to do this with what seemed a misunderstanding during the ordering. Very polite and professional. I ended up keeping the doors shipped cause I liked the way they looked but was still impressed with the offer to resolve the issue. I also recieved a broken door locking latch bolt (small extra part) . Sheds unlimited shipped one up and I had it in 3 days. Great company. Thanks , love the SHED. My kit looks like your assembled sheds and I'm not a contractor. I do recommend that maybe a few more shingles are sent with the kits. I only had 1 left over shingle. If I hadent made all perfect cuts or had a few damaged I would have been short. Otherwise 5 star rating.

Just a note to tell you how extremely happy my wife Pauline and I are of the quality and craftmanship that exists with your company . Your employees Mark, Will and John who erected our garage are second to none . We didn't think that companies like yours even existed . Their work ethics was absolutely unbelievable . Please keep your crew and don't ever lose them . I don't know how to express in words how happy and pleased we are and especially very thankful for working with us . I will recommend you to everyone .

  Awesome company to work with.  The garage came on time and everyone was awesome to work with.  We had some tight areas in the yard but they managed to get around everything.  I can't believe how quickly they put the garage up and how amazing it looks.  The employees in the office were professional, patient and truly accomodating on setting the delivery.  They arrived on time and cleaned up when they left. I had a great experience with Gideon and the rest of the crew. I would highly recommend this company again.

We were impressed with the level of service. The construction process was very fast and only took two days from start to finish, The quality of the 20X32 garage is excellent and we would recommend Sheds Unlimited.

Ted Currier from Center Valley, PA

Thanks Sheds Unlimited. My 8x10 shed is perfect. The colors matched the house perfectly. The entire process, from Q&A prior to ordering to delivery, was top notch! The shed quality is just as I expected, unlike other sheds sold online or at the "big stores", this one is solid and with quality finishing. Getting lots of compliments!

Sid Fernandez from Eastchester, NY

The Potting Shed is well built, looks great and just what we wanted. We would recommend this company to anyone interested in a nice and well constructed shed.

Alan D. Jones from Dunkirk Maryland

While seeking to obtain a permit, a customer stated she has purchased a shed from Sheds Unlimited. That information has since been priceless. The variety of sheds as well as color selections are awesome! In speaking with Delmar, Nelson and Gideon (pad installer), all have been an excellent resource in responding to questions, offering suggestions and establishing accurate time frames. I am extremely happy with not only the shed but the workmanship that was put into its development. Might I add that the driver/installer of the shed was quite courteous and professional. I just say Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
