Dimensions of a Two Car Garage Detached

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.

We purchased a 8x18 classic workshop shed and are very pleased. Sara was very helpful, answered all of our questions, and provided multiple quotes for different styles/sizes. The delivery process was simple and timely as well. The whole experience was great from start to finish. We definitely recommend Sheds Unlimited.

Kim Vermillion from Point of Rocks, MD

Great price and great service! I would recommend them to all my friends. Watching the them take the shed off the truck and put it exactly in the right place to less than 20min. was impressive. Very easy to work the people at Sheds unlimited.
Thanks,
Ken

When our church was presented with a storage need we started looking for a shed. Fortunately we were led to Sheds Unlimited. Austin, who walked us through the the options,was very patient and answered all our questions and never let on how little we knew about shed construction. He sent requested support diagrams and information for our congregational presentation and permit request. Everything went smoothly and we are very happy. Thank you Austin and the staff and owners of Sheds Unlimited Inc. it has been a pleasure doing business with you. Too bad you only let me give you 5 stars...you deserve MORE!

bill brown from fairless hills pa.

We didn't want the "run of the mill" garage.
The Garden Shed dormer windows, shutters etc. was so eye catching!
What we needed was a two car garage with full attic.
First time Sheds Unlimited constructed this concept.
They accomplished it with flying colors! Exact paint match too.

The three men never stopped working, John, Willie, and Mark.
They could teach the new generation what the definition of fortitude is. True hard working impressive men.
The entire organization of Shed Unlimited cannot be compared to in this day and age. Five stars all the way around.
If and when you do hire them, congrats, and great choice, you found them. :)

I was worried that they would not be able to put the shed where i needed it. Not only did it get there, but it was put there in short order. This company has delivered a quality product on time, with professional results. I would recommend them to anyone.
That again.

Chris cassel from Cape may, NJ

The process was very easy and everyone was helpful and professional. The delivery driver was great and I was impressed by how easy he made it look to move a huge shed onto the shed pad. I will use Sheds Unlimited again!!!

I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the shed I bought from you this past summer. I purchased it to park my Harley in. I finished off the interior and just added some indoor/outdoor carpet for the final touch. Thank you so much for building and selling such a high quality shed at a very reasonable price My Harley and I appreciate it. God Bless!

i bought my shed as a kit.I was not expecting the walls and floor to be fully constructed. I was expecting(and hoping) to put it all together myself. Fortunately my son was available to help me carry it all to my back yard and put the walls up, or I would have had a real problem. Also, there were a lot of trim boards of different lengths and colors with no instructions of where they go( I still have some left over afterwards with no clue what they are for). Other than that, the shed looks great and I love it

chris from wilmington

If there were more stars I would add them to the review. Can't say enough about the process from the first phone call to the exciting delivery day. No pressure sales, extremely patient and helpful throughout the entire process. I left no question unturned and they answered each one patiently and professionally. The quality of the shed so far out shined the local shed makers, there was no comparison. I researched them all...save yourself some time and go straight to Sheds Unlimited!!
