The Garage: The Multipurpose Mecca
Perhaps it started with a poker game. Or maybe a dart board. A few lawn chairs, a refrigerator and some lighting upgrades later, and the garage started becoming more of a destination than a battleground of boxes. For some, it’s still a place to park the family minivan. But for others, it’s an exercise studio, a kids’ playroom or a workshop. And for good reason: the garage can represent nearly 20% of the home’s total square footage. Residents are waking up to the opportunity, but also recognizing some of the structural shortcomings.
