12x20 Garage

The 12x20 garage has wood siding painted light gray with red trim.  All of the garages now come with a steel diamond plate at the entry point as shown in the 12x20 garage in video below.

The wooden garages are standard with pressure treated 3/4 inch floor and pressure treated 12" on center 2x4 joists and 5 p.t. 4x4 foundation runners.

Garages have two 2'x3' slider windows with screens and shutters.  9'x7' insulated garage door and a 3' single door.

When researching what kind of a wood garage to get the first thing you will want to figure out is what size garage do I need.  Most cars are between 16' and 17' long so as a minimum garage I would recommend a 12x20 garage, but for most people a slightly larger 12x24 garage just makes a little more sense because even if your thinking this garage is only for my car in reality you will want at least 4 feet or so for a loft or a work bench to store car related items. 

The next question you will want to ask yourself is do I want a barn style roof or an a-frame roof.  The 12x20 garage is the picture above is a barn style roof and the 12x20 garage video below is an a-frame roof.  The advantage for the barn roof is that it will give you more head room for a loft to store your items.  The appeal for the a-frame is in most cases it will match the roof line of your home better.

Alan's Factory Outlet can build the 12x20 garage with or without a floor depending on your preference.

Instead of a wood garage if you never want to paint it you could get a vinyl garage.

Need a garage for two cars you could either get a 14x40 garage or a 20x20 or 24x24 2 car garage.  The benefit of the 24x24 2 car garage is that your cars are side by side instead of end to end in a 14x40 garage.  All of these size garages can also be turned into a 2 story garage giving you a 2nd level for storage. 

Another option is a metal garage.  Metal garages can be built in a one or two car garage.
