Sheds can be used for almost anything today. One of the most common uses around now is the garage. As someone who needs the space, how do you know what 2-car garage shed is right for you? You probably know what it’s like not to have a garage. Maybe you even know what it’s like not to have a driveway. We don’t want you to worry about space, who is parking where, or putting those folding chairs out in the street to save your spot anymore. You deserve a quality 2-car garage shed, and this article is going to help you decide which one is right for you.

But First…To The Basics

What is a car shed? While this may be commonplace for some people, others may never have seen a car go into a garage before. A 2-car garage shed is simply that: a prefab shed that has been custom-built with the plan to house vehicles. If you see names like prefab garage, garage shed, or portable garage, chances are, they are all referring to the same (or very similar) things. The main differences are in how they are assembled.

Prefab Garages – could be modular, meaning they need to be assembled on site with multiple prefab pieces, or they may be delivered fully assembled. 

Portables Garages – are usually delivered in one piece, fully assembled. 

Garage Sheds – encompass the full spectrum of each example, but often refer to portable buildings that are delivered fully or partially assembled. 

So how can I utilize my garage shed? Truly it is up to the user how their garage is used. We hinted that sheds can be used for almost anything…and we have been in the business long enough to see it all.
