Fewer people are parking in their garage than ever before. The reasons for this are numerous. Not the least of which is the fact that today’s families simply have bigger cars and more stuff.

As a last resort, families are using their garages as storage sheds, rather than for parking their cars.

Hindsight is 20/20… I would encourage you to plan now — in the design phase — so you don’t find yourself second-guessing your new home’s design later.

Building A New Garage?

Here are some garage tips that might come in handy when designing your garage bays, choosing your garage doors & openers, and laying out the storage space in your new home — both inside and outside.

One thing’s for sure: You want to be able to accommodate your families growing needs. By including adequate space in your new garage, you could alleviate a lot of headaches later!

We've gone through the entire process of designing and planning every single detail of our dream log home! We have the blueprints... and the land... and the contractor... and the goal for our log cabin home to be our retirement home. Before you build (or buy) a log home, I have a slew of helpful tips for you -- to plan, design, build, decorate, and maintain your very own rustic modern log home. When I'm not fine-tuning the log home of my dreams, you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I’ve written nearly 300 articles for current and future log home owners on this site! Many of them have over 50K shares.
