Practical Tandem Garage Design
Garage is where the car is parking and keep save. Garage needs to be kept in a good shape for keeping the car. Nowadays, multi-car garages are commonly seen in mid to large urban houses, with a growing number of those being tandem garages. A tandem garage is a two-car garage (double garage), but built so that one car parks in front of the other. Urban dwellings usually suffer from space crunch. Most urban homes are built on a relatively smaller plot, and therefore, increasing the garage width would mean having to sacrifice precious residential space. This isn’t a logical choice, and hence isn’t advised. A tandem garage offers a neat solution to this problem. The concept behind it is simple – if you can’t extend your garage laterally, make it bigger longitudinally. Thus, a tandem garage design is constructed by making it longer. The vehicles to be stored in such a garage are parked in tandem, that is, one behind the other, and hence, it gets the name tandem garage.
A typical 2-car tandem garage has the width of a standard single-car garage, but is nearly twice as long. It usually has one door at the front through which cars can enter or be retrieved. Where more rear space is available, some tandem garages may even have a door at the rear for increased accessibility to the vehicles parked in the interior portion.
