If you are looking to buy a Two Car Garage and are wondering what fits inside a 20x20 Garage...
Here is your answer.
As you know, many people today use a garage for more than vehicles. Before you build a 20x20 garage, make sure it gives you the space you need for all the extra things you'd like to store. Since a 20x20 garage is the minimum sized two car garage we recommend, you might think about going larger or higher so you don't crowd yourself out the first day!
A 20x20 Garage can hold two smaller cars, but you will have very little extra space around the cars for getting in and out and for storing extra items. See your options for a 20x20 garage below.
Single Story 20x20 Garages
We start with the basics. These Single Story 20x20 GARAGES give you space for two cars and not much more. Sure, you can stack a few things along the back wall if you have small cars, or you can use one bay for a car and the other for storage, but your space is limited to one floor.
20x20 One Car Prefab Garage
If you only need room for one vehicle in your 20x20 prefab garage, you can use the rest for a shop area, or to store smaller things like a push mower, etc. There’s also plenty of room for a workbench or two in this design. This 20x20 garage is a modular garage which is delivered in two sections.
20x20 Prefab Garage
Here is a very simple two car garage with a single door instead of two 9x7 doors. It is built on a concrete pad on location so is really a permanent garage solution. If all you need is space to keep two vehicles out of the weather, this is a good choice in a 20x20 prefab garage.
20x20 Garage w Steeper Roof
To be honest, this garage is actually a 20x22 Garage. But we showcase it here to highlight the steeper roof pitch. If you want a 20x20 garage with a few fancies, just go with a steeper roof pitch and add battens as seen here.
20x20 Car Garages with Attic Space
When space on the property is tight, but you have a lot of stuff, considering going up! You can add an attic space in the rafters or go with a Legacy Two Story 20x20 Garage. You'll have a 20x20 Car Garage plus an upstairs space for whatever you need.
20x20 Garage with Attic Space
These neatly designed 20x20 Attic Garages go above and beyond with plenty more space. Store your lesser used items upstairs, while keeping your vehicles, ATV’s, or other larger items on the main floor. Upgrading to an Attic Garage is very cost effective.
Inside a 20x20 Attic Garage
The space inside a 20x20 Garage with Attic Space looks something like this. Notice the stairway in the corner which would also include a railing. This leads to an attic area upstairs giving you easy access to the things you need every week.
20x20 Garage with Man Cave
Now you're talking! Not only do you have upstairs storage, this 20x22 two-story garage actually has an upstairs man cave that is fully finished. The large dormers make the second floor very useful and roomy while the first floor is used for car and tool storage. See another two-story prefab garage in VA that serves an Etsy Business owner on the second floor.
A Barn Two Story Garage
Ok, this is not a 20x20 Garage. The size is 24x24, but we wanted to show the roof style of our Legacy Two Story Barn Garages. With this type of a roof, you get maximum upstairs space whether you to with an Attic Garage or a Two Story 20x20 Garage.
Other Ideas for a 20x20 Garage
So, to return to our original question, “What can I fit into a 20x20 Prefab Garage?” The simple answer is, A LOT if you go up, not so much if you stick with a single story 20x20 garage!.
Even though this may not be the ideal sized garage for two vehicles with a bit of ingenuity you can certainly make it work. And here are a few more ideas for making your 20x20 garage work for you. Add a Lean-To, a porch, a shed dormer or single door to make the entrance more accessible.
And one more thing!
You could buy a double-wide 20x20 garage and convert it into living space! This is based on our Modular Garage Designs but without the garage doors. It is an amazingly beautiful living space. Howe about half living space and half garage space? The options are limitless!
