I have a 2 car garage and 1/2 of it is for storage. I can only fit 1 car (the wifes minivan) in it.

I have neighbors who use the entire garage for storage.

another who build a mancave out of it.

how do you use your garage?

its holding my broken project car, and I have a workbench and tools out there.

Motorcycle and storage.
Truck and car are under the carport.

Get both.

Two cars. Kids bikes, ladder, wheelbarrow, mower, edger, sport equipment, lawn tools etc. Nice and neat.

Car/cars.

I use the attic for storage.
Having a 2nd car and a garage for your nice car is the only way to keep one car nice.

As soon as you start leaving it outside and/or driving it in bad weather it's impossible to keep that vehicle nice.

3 car garage ...2 cars will fit (right now because its winter) the rest is motorcycle, riding mower, bicycles, pool supplies, generators, tools blah blah blah


My neighbor across the way keeps his corvette and mustang (neither get driven more than a few times a year) in the garage while his truck and his wifes car stay outside
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:30:48 AM EST
Both cars in garage. 80% of the people in my neighborhood use it storage.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:30:52 AM EST
3 car here, fit my truck, her car and the Willies project, fortunately the Jeep is short enough so I can still have a workbench and beer fridge in the garage behind it.

I have 3 cars in my garage.

I insisted $100,000 worth of cars deserved it over junk that would likely never be a part of your life again.

My garage is a barn, so both.

eta: Garages are primarily for cars. If you have room for other items after the cars are in, go for it.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:32:11 AM EST
car and bike in garage, plus i have way, way, way too many tools

it's tight
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:32:15 AM EST
I guess mine is a mancave, altho I don't like that term.
It was an agreement with wife when we bought the house.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:32:49 AM EST
My driveway is for driving, not parking.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:32:50 AM EST
I have a one car garage for storage and a two car garage for my DD and pickup.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:32:59 AM EST
I use my garage for toys.
Cars were built to sit outside, no reason they need to be indoors.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:33:04 AM EST
My 2-car garage holds my Tundra, a dirtbike, my son's Quarter Midget, workbench, and the tools.

Next place I live will have at least a 3-car garage.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:33:10 AM EST
Both, heck the wife doesn't like parking in there anyway.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:33:24 AM EST
Motorcycles and shit, no room for any cars

I have a two car garage.
It holds a car, truck, motorcycle, and storage.





Including a stack of firewood....




Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:34:42 AM EST
Wife's car in one half, my motorcycle and tools in the other. The truck has to live outside.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:35:29 AM EST
This is why I bought the house I did.
It holds my car and bike, and the rest of the room is projects
The far left bay is a sidedraft paint booth, and there is an office and bathroom in the corner.

Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:36:41 AM EST
one car garage with a sunroom off the back. Car is parked in it and junk goes in sunroom or my shed.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:37:21 AM EST
Late spring, summer and early fall the vehicle stay outside. The garage is used for projects/work shop....

But when it cold, I HATE having to clean of vehicles or letting them defrost so I move stuff around to put my truck and the wifes car inside whenever we are home. Given that we live in different parts of the country, you don't have to worry about the winter months like I do....
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:38:02 AM EST
Two car garage that holds two vehicles and room for storage.
I can fit two two cords of split wood in it along with enough other stuff to fill a small moving van and still park both vehicles in it. Nice workbench about 8" long at the front.

My son in Texas parks two vehicles outside because his garage is the storage room.

Workshop and way too many motorcycles.

Not enough room left over for cars.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:38:37 AM EST
3 car garage. Both cars, workbench & cabinets for storage. I have enough room for an add't vehicle which I may set up a bench strictly for weapon work. I believe a garage is to park the cars, not place all kinds of "stuff" that you can't get your vehicles in.......
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:39:00 AM EST
Both, pretty much the only space I have for my stuff so I have a heavy bag, inversion table, safe, workbench, etc. around the perimeter, wife's car sits in the middle. My car lives in the driveway.
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:39:15 AM EST
2 car (in theory) garage here.

On the left is my wife's Eqi..... ah, hell, this:





Before any real work, like replacing countertops, happens inside, the area in red will be reduced to 25% of the size in this picture.

in south FLA rain comes in anytime. it could be sunny no wind and in 5 minutes its a hurricane.

with 3 young kids, the wife has to have the van inside.

Both

Huge garage ftw
Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:40:32 AM EST
My garage is claimed as a 2car, but that is only if you park them 3 inches apart. Instead, it holds some snowmobiles, one car, and a mountain of stuff awaiting sale and disposal in the spring.

Next house is going to have as much garage and barn space as I can possibly conjure up. It will also have a basement and/or attic. Without a basement, attic, or crawlspace this house SUCKS to live in with young kids.

Both - 6 car garage, 1 bay is used for the mower, workbenches, and various and sundry shit...

I plan on building a 4 car garage this summer. That way we can use our current 2 car garage for cars.

It's nice to get into a vehicle that has all of the snow and ice melted off of it.
I keep the garage heated to 34 degrees. Thermostat is mounted chest high.

Work bench and storage

Both SUV's are parked inside. Years ago at a previous house when I didn't care as much both of our cars got bad hail damage from a surprise overnight storm. Ever since then I have made it a point to be able to park both vehicles in the garage. Plus it's nice to be able to get in/out of them during inclement weather as well as them being more secure during the night. Over the years I have grown to hate clutter too so I don't like having my garage filled with crap anyway.

ETA: In front of our SUV's there's a small but decent space for my workbench, cabinet, and shelf unit.

Link Posted: 1/16/2015 11:43:08 AM EST
Get Both.

3 Car garage that has 2 cars and storage for tools and equip.

How often do you use your bikes?
I have thought about hanging my children's bikes but then I would be lifting them up / taking them down once a day

No longer a garage. Now holds a Bridgeport Mill, Morey Lathe, CNC Router, saws, tools, materials, a fridge for the beer, television and a couple of chairs.

2500 square feet. So, both.
