Shelter From The Storm: The 2-Car Garage Option

Automobiles are an expensive investment. The fact that they start to depreciate in value the minute you drive them off the dealer’s lot makes the idea of having a home with a garage become rather practical.

And while these structures often wind up serving as a de facto depository for bicycles, lawn equipment and tools, having a two-car garage allows homeowners to get away with using half the space for a car and the other for storage. Late Belgian artist/architect Henry van de Velde is credited as having built one of the first residential garages in Germany back in 1903, making these utilitarian structures fairly commonplace.
