My garages. The short story. These measurements may not be exact. But as close as I remember, mostly going by the size of each drive in door. Home number one, for six years, was no larger than a two car garage. This is where I’m really guessing. The cement block garage is a 1 ½ car with swing out wood barn doors I made. This makes the garage roughly 14X18. At most 15X20. My first car was a 1949 Dodge and it was only garaged from Oct 57 when we married and moved in till spring 1958 when I bought my first old car project, a 1931 Model A coupe. The coupe went in the garage for six years. I mostly worked on it outside in the 10’ X 75’ driveway. This is also where I worked on a 49 Olds, a 50 Buick, 54 Ford, 39 Ford 4-dr, and others. My biggest project there was swapping the 4-cyl Austin Healy Sprite engine/tranny for a 327 Chevy/powerglide. Yes outside partially under a shade tree. When doing any painting the Model A sat in the front yard so I could paint in the garage. At least three of those cars were painted there using a small Sears compressor. House #2 for 30+ years had a 24X28 garage with 16’ door with 4 old cars in it most of the time. Yes four! Sometimes another 4 or 5 sat outside. Again most work except painting was done on the drive way. This drive was roughly 10’ at the street and widened to 4-cars wide at the garage, about 50’ long. I later added a rear stall 8’ wide on one end and 14’ on the other by 24’ long. A white rock pad for the motor home or other RV was roughly 45’ by 12 next to the garage and side 8’ door of the addition. That rear addition had a 6’ overhang to work with the car partially outside. We lived on the end of a cul-de-sac on a pie shaped lot. I added an 8’X28 side addition on the left side. Half that for yard tools, the other half for work bench and welder/compressor, etc. The main garage had a high ceiling for storing crap. My 39 Ford was stored and forgotten in the rear addition. House #3 in Florida, 21 years, after moving most crap and most cars into garage roughly 24’28’ with two 9‘ doors. Here we have a 18’X36’ shed filled with three cars and enough crap to build more plus a 12x 14’ workshop with a car port on each end. The 10’X 12’ pump house became my garden tool shed. Ended up adding two 10X20 vinyl shelters on the slab in front of the garage. This is my main work area. All of the garages I’ve owned but I still work outside where my DD and RV sits. Old age. Five acres and this larger place is getting to be too much for us. We decided we’d move back to Illinois. Lucked out and found a small home on ½ acre at the edge of our home town. Difficult to find a small place in the city with a garage or even a drive way. Again we lucked out. I now will have a 20X20 garage and a 100’ long grass driveway. Hope to put in a 20X20 cement slab at the garage with a 10’ drive. Way out back there is a 10'X12' metal shed for my mower and other lawn care stuff. That'll help. We bought this place off the internet so with the help of our grown kids and pictures bought it sort of site unseen. I do plan on getting rid of all but the two old cars in my avatar. Gave son my 39 Ford and son-in-law my 48 Chevy panel truck. Still got cars and crap to sell. This makes me very interested in this 2-car garage thread. Will two cars, parts, and tools fit in a 20X20 very low raftered garage? Too old and lazy to add on the rear which is what I’d love to do. Lot is 105X210 with small home in middle. Nothing but a farm behind so plenty of room. Coincidentally we’ve only had four homes. All four on dead end streets. Each got shorter. This one is only 1/8 mile long. Don't have any really good photos of my garages but here's a few partial views. Hopefull in order. Garage #2 #3 where we are. Garage #3 Garage #4 Garage #1 That’s my two car garage story and I’m stuck with it.
