Re: Garage sizes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You need look no further than the Clopay garage door company:

where a "double" garage door is 16'x7' or 16'x8'. But don't take their word for it. You will find that the definitions for engineering and building code purposes are often at odds with the definitions used by the appraisal community for what constitutes the "Standard." You need to refer your combatants to a certified appraiser.

I think he was referring to a 16ft wide garage door as being a 2 car garage.

But you are correct unless you name is Bo or Luke Duke or Reese Bobby, parking is possible, but getting out would be tough unless there are allowances for opening the doors on each side.

You can also have a "TANDEM" garage, where two or more cars can go into a single 8-9ft wide garage door. The garage is just long and narrow.
