Garage Design Video
Hi, I'm Tim Carter and I'm here at a great new construction site in New Hampshire. I am in a garage that is being built. At this point, it doesn't even have a roof on it. The walls are framed and I want to show you a couple of neat things about the design of this garage. You should keep these in mind the next time you build a garage.
The wall next to the garage door (the door is nice and wide; 10-feet wide works for larger pickup trucks, SUV's; never less then 9-feet wide) extends almost 4 -feet past the garage door opening. Most garages have only 2-feet to the side. By the time you store garbage cans, bicycles, or anything else, you don't have enough room to open your car doors. Coupled with the extra wide garage door, there will be plenty of room to open the car doors without bumping into any thing.
Second, check the depth of this garage. This one is nearly 26-feet deep. This allows for a workbench or storage cabinets to be placed at one end of the garage and still have room in which to pull the vehicles.
These are just two simple tips to keep in mind when designing your next garage.
