This family out grew their two car garage. Setbacks wouldn’t allow for an add on to that garage so the architect came up with the idea of adding this garage on the other side of the house. That was possible because it was a corner lot. It is a heated garage with 2×6” insulated walls. It attaches to the house via a set of stairs to the finished basement. The siding is painted cedar. The windows are Anderson casements.

Thanks Jim, I can’t take credit for the idea, only for the execution.

I can’t say I have ever seen a house with two garages. I would like to see a picture of the full house. How tall is the inside? It looks like a lot of room above the door.

It is just over 10’ to the drywall. I don’t have a picture of that at the moment but I will see what I can come up with.

We often see two garages here, but one usually faces the street (for autos) and one faces the waterfront (for boats), so the average person driving by doesn’t even realize there is a garage on either end! Sometimes the boat garage has doors on both sides.

The final result of your work looks fantastic.
