The Exterior:

When approaching from the driveway, dual 16′ wide x 7′ tall folding overhead garage doors greet you, with soft back lite from inside adding an inviting glow & intrigue.

Measuring 36′ x 23′-10″, the Modernist detached two-car garage features an 858 sf footprint and approximately 775 sf of finished interior space.

The 21″ roof overhangs from the flat roof above provide an excellent venue for recessed LED lighting you’ll find detailed on the add-on electrical and reflected ceiling plans.

Ample modern windows on two sides provide lots of natural light to the interior, while the dual stucco and horizontal cedar siding provide a refined look without enormous additional expense.

The Interior:

On the interior, you have a painted drywall finish with four parking stalls; each measures 18′-0″ deep x 9′-6″ wide and leaving ample room for a workbench or additional storage.

Access to the garage comes from a dedicated garage entrance off a 36″ wide side entrance door or through the two overhead garage doors.

This modern-style four-car garage has a finished floor-to-ceiling height of 9′-0″, thus leaving limited room for ceiling-mounted storage solutions.

Compact fluorescent lights are typical inside with ample wall receptacles specified off of a 60 AMP electrical sub-panel.
