The dimensions of an one car and a two car garage

KNOW-HOW

Garages are generally used to store in one, two or even three cars and as storage spaces for tools, bicycles, woods, etc. When it comes to the issue of best garage size or standard measurements the opinions differ. In fact, the ideal garage size depends on three major factors: Car size, storage needs, working in the garage.

Car dimensions:

The dimensions of a car, especially, the car length vary significantly between several models. However, the width is more standard, since all vehicles have to drive in the same lanes. According to the book "Architect's data" by Ernst & Peter Neufert (p. 437) the standard car size is, length=4.50m X width=1.80m. In practice, most cars are longer and wider than these measurements so, in the following examples we have considered an average car size of 4,70m to 1,90m. 

To find the best garage for your car, add to the width of the car a clearance of 2’-6’’ to 2’-7’’ (76cm to 80cm). This clearance is necessary for circulation between vehicles, and between vehicles and other obstacles.
