It seems that a lot of people who do have two car garages sadly don't have room for any cars in them.

HAHA... but on the flip side, you should see her KITCHEN! Hey, if she gets her kitchen, I get my garage. I actually call it, my Garaj Mahal.

But yeah, I can NOT imagine life with a 2 car garage. I would be able to fit ONE car in there, because of all the kids bikes, toys, lawn equipment, snow equipment, spare tires, jacks, tools, I could keep going.

Which brings me to my next point. HOW IN THE HECK, do builders and people not automatically go for at LEAST a 3 car garage? Even watching HGTV like House Hunters or the like, they never and I mean NEVER even show the garage in those shows. They talk about all these great fancy updates they do to the bedrooms, the kitchen, blah blah... but yet, no one even TALKS about the garage. So bizarre.

Another thing - when those people talk about their REQUIREMENTS for a home, not one of them says anything about the garage (I take that back, I think one guy said he needed a 3 car garage). But nothing about size, layout, etc... nothing. And yet all the people and friends I know who have seen my garage say, oh man, I WISH I should have done a bigger garage. LOL.

In today's environment, not only do you have all those "stuff" I mentioned above to put in there, but with kids now having cars? Where the heck will you put those in a 2 car garage?!?!?!

Sadly, that is so true.

Looks good Burton ... for the garage fan and lights, check out Big As$ Fans, they also have LED lighting systems now, and they're awesome of course ...

Yep. We have so many neighbors with 2-car garages and 2 cars in the driveway. When my wife and I started our house search, a 3-car was a "nice to have" but evolved into a "must have" as we kept searching. Our realtor, and my uncle, who's also a realtor, said in many cases, it's become the difference between selling and not selling a house, rather than just a feature you can get a bit more money for.

And I'm very jealous of Burton's! It's looking great, and the electrical is set up really smartly. Glad you did the extra 220 for your future electric car too.

OHHH YES. Big A$$ fans FTW! They have lights now too? I will look into that. They're pricey though, right Gabe? I'll be hurtin' for a while on budget. No mods for Marilyn for a little bit. Heck, I gotta buy my lift first!!!

Thanks Kyle! Yes, on the topic of outlets - do you know how many outlets I currently have in my garage of my current house? TWO. TWOoooooooooooooooooooo. Can you believe that crap? I hated that part of it. I mean come on... who in the heck designs a garage and puts two in there. Wow. I had extension cords and outlet expanders galore in that garage. I was probably violating electrical safety, but... LOL.

So yeah, now? 16. Suck on that, you stupid home builders! lol.

And yes, selling points - garage and kitchen - man and wife. We got it covered!!!

I totally agree Burton, especially when it comes to kids/family that you need a minimum of having a 3 car garage or space for fitting 4 or more cars without a doubt

I feel your pain. I have 3 in my 3-car garage, two of which are in the ceiling for garage door openers. So stupid. Almost as stupid as the fact that when we moved into the house the walls were all finished with drywall, but hollow with no insulation. So one of my first projects was drilling holes between each set of studs, blowing insulation in, and then patching the holes.
