The Ideal Garage: How Does Yours Compare?

When it comes to talking about the garage some guys get that far away look in their eyes that speaks to all the things they wish they had so they could give their beloved auto the TLC it deserves. Other folks give the garage as a whole about as much thought as they give garage door openers, which is to say not much.

  • Space between vehicles: In a 2 car garage it’s important to leave at least 3 feet between cars so there’s no chance of dings. In our ideal garage we’re going to plump that up to a minimum of 5 feet so that work can be done on one car without endangering the other.
