I have a 2 car garage, but I can only get one car in it. Some is storage the other part are my work benches.

It's funny you should ask that...just last night, hubs hit something pulling in. We can just barely squeak in there, but it is getting tight, partially since we are working on a project. I literally had a dream about getting a new shed, so it is time to do something soon.

It took many years, and a shed, but yes. At least, during the winter. During the summer I take my Vette out of storage and use one garage bay for it, and park my car in the driveway. The other bay I usually end up using for setting up table saws and "workshop" stuff, and keep the other car in the driveway.

But, once Fall comes around, everything gets moved around so both cars can be in the garage, and the Vette goes back into storage.

My jeep + my cousin's crew cab Silverado fit in my garage. Granted, he has to exit is vehicle on the passenger side, but still.

In the winter I can park two in it in the summer I might be able to park one if I move things around because of house projects.

I live in FL - I don't know of anyone who actually uses it to park their cars in. Most people turn it into a little workshop, storage, leave the garage door open and sit in it, etc. I have seen very creative things done with garages but not to actually park a car or cars in.

My house will be 100 this year. My large detached garage may have been a carriage house, but was probably build in the 20s or 30s, when having your garage facing the street was gauche, and garages were built on the back of the property facing the alley. Unfortunately, the alley was not paved, and over the ensuing century of desert sandstorms, eroded so that the alley is now about 3' lower than the slab on which the garage sits. So you;d have to use a winch to put a car in my garage. We use the edges for storage, but most of it is given over to the dog, who has a sofa and an enormous coffee table (supplementary bed) in there. Although raised above the alley, the garage is sunken into my yard (I live on the side of the mountain, the house is split level and the lot slopes toward the alley), so the garage is cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter than the outdoors. Meanwhile, I have a canvas carport over my driveway which protects my car from sun, rain and hail.

2 car garage, and no :) :( hmm not sure. actually :( Too much junk.

We're able to park two cars in our garage. It is a "2.5 car garage" though. One is our "spare car" that we don't drive. My wife parks her car in the open spot. And my car is out on the driveway. We do have shelving that goes around half the garage and a nifty work bench that the previous owner put in. So I'm sure that helps keep it organized.

We use it for parking our cars, but probably because we moved into our house less than a year ago and we got rid of a lot of clutter when we moved. Also, we don't have any mini versions of us or any pets, so I'm sure that's helping to keep the garage a car parking structure. Ask again in a year or two and I may have a different answer.

My husband is a fanatic about keeping the garage organized so he can park the car in there. It's only a 1 car garage so the Mustang goes inside and the truck stays in the driveway.

could park 2 in it but right now only room for 1

I think I'm the only one in my neighborhood who uses the garage to store cars.

The wife's Escape fits nice, but my F150 is just a wee bit too big to get in comfortably. As others have said, its probably good because I have a lot of extra room for projects now. And come to think of it, i've been getting more accomplished.

I have a two car garage and thanks to my anal-retentive organizational skills I can still fit two cars and my random tools/stuff in it.

My 2-car garage was a glorified storage unit until we had a rash of car vandalism (slashed tires, broken windows) in my neighborhood about three years ago. My wife and I managed to clean it out so we could park our cars inside at night. The vandalism stopped, but we've gotten used to having our cars in the garage so we try to keep it reasonably clean. Some stuff works its way into the corners once in a while, but for the most part a spare bedroom has now become our de facto junk room.

2 car garage, can park 2 cars in it, that's what I wanted it for...now the basement on the other hand....

No, I am able to park the wife's car in it...

I can park 1 in my 2 car garage but even if I got the other side cleaned up the previous owners didn't leave the key (it's an old door without a opener) so it's stuck shut until I get around to dealing with it.

One car fits in the two car port MOST of the time. The half reserved for DH is abso-frakkin-lutely full of his stuff. Thank goodness it's all behind the house and no one can see it from the street!

Two-car garage, both cars fit.

We have some stuff we could get rid of though. We have an old, partially broken washer and dryer set that came with the house, and the person who bought my house didn't want my washer and dryer, so my newer ones are in the house and the older ones are in the garage. I have no idea what to do with them. They need repair, but every appliance I've ever gotten rid of has gone with the people who delivered the new one...

The "garage"? Hey fellas, the "garage"! Well, ooh la di da, Mr. French Man.

No garage here, though I'm sure if I did have one I probably wouldn't be able to fit a car in it anyway. My house is seriously space challenged.

My 2 car garage sits behind my 2 car carport. You have to drive through the carport to get into the garage. I keep my car in the garage since i rarely drive it and we keep the wife's car in the carport. The rest of the garage is used as a workshop for cabinet/furniture building and the likes. Eventually, I hope to buy an old project car and work on it in there too

I have a two car garage, but half the garage is full of random junk from the house. Hence my car parks in the garage and my wife's car parks outside until more of the junk she keeps throwing in to the garage goes away.

Thankfully winter was essentially cancelled here this year, so parking her car outside didn't matter much.

A Crown Vic on one side, a Miata on the other. It is a normal 2 car garage and is also filled with boxes & a deep freezer. That being said, I am a single person in a moderately sized 3 bedroom house and I have no real spare room in it either.

I'm not a neat-nick, but I have always made sure that I could get my vehicles inside the garage (by whatever means necessary). The garage is to protect your vehicle from the elements and ne'er-do-wells.

Two cars park in my attached garage. My neighbors look upon me with suspicion. :-)

However, I also have a 36x48 barn and a 24x24 open-sided machine shed for other stuff (animal pens, feed, motorcycles, work benches, ski boat, riding lawnmower, tools, misc. lumber, etc.).

Ah, country living. (And the inevitable "Too much stuff syndrome".)

No garage but I have a carport. It's capable of 2 vehicles, my 4Runner is under it and my Taurus is parked beside the house. Once I got my garden tractor under the carport it's to tight for the car.

Holds two - there's one in there now and a bunch of trim I'm staining is there in place of the second car that goes there.

And there's still a ton of junk it the garage.

We have a 2 car garage, and yes, I could put 2 cars in it. However, one side has my Seadoo, the other has 4 xl dog beds and a motorcycle in it. We also have a storage shed 10x20 in back that houses mowers and stuff. Having 3 cars, 2 danes, 2 dobermanns, a motorcycle, boat, and a Seadoo, you pick the fun stuff and animals to garage. It is climate controlled as well.

We have a 2 car garage. In the winter we definitely keep our cars inside. But in the summer, the cars stay outside and the motorcycles/lawn mower/gardening stuff take over.

I can only park on car in mine, but I only have one car, so it's not a big deal. The rest is taken up with outdoor tool and gear storage, a bunch of bricks that were leftover when my house was built and some junk I need to get rid of.

We have a three car garage. Easy to keep both our cars in it and still have room for my workbench, the lawn equipment, two bicycles, a freezer, and tons of storage.

Yes, we park our two cars in our two car garage. The reason being that we also have a 400 sq. ft. back house that was converted to a work shop by the previous owner. Please don't ask if I am able to actually able to use the work shop as a work shop...

Large converted to a garage building in the back. Off the top of my head there are 9ish vehicles in there with lots of other stuff. There are several vehicles outside including the daily drivers that do not fit. DH is a collector. Maybe this year we will work on cleaning it out but I am not holding my breathe!

We have a 2-car and 1-car garage (we have two cars), and converted the latter into a comfy office. It used to be a spot for random junk, but one boring summer day my dad and I cleared it out and made ourselves useful.

no before you get all huffy about "You should let your wife have the garage"

2 car garage, 2 cars parked in it most of the time.

It doubles as my workshop, so if I'm doing a big project, I make keep it set up that way for a week or three. But all the equipment either lives or gets moved back to the perimeter so the cars can eventually get back in.

I have a 1 car garage. I could park my Subaru Impreza in it, barely crawl out of the driver's side door, and the front bumper would be blocking access into the house, but it would fit.

My Subaru Forrester on the other hand will not.

I don't know why they're legally allowed to market it as a garage if a standard sized car won't fit in it, let alone a compact one.

I have a 3 car garage. We park our Ford Explorer Sport Trak and Mazda 3 in the double bay. I use the third bay as a man cave. I installed some chain link fence in between to create some separation between the two.
