MYGENERATION BLOG: Two-Car Garage Most Common in New Homes
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — According to an analysis of a Census Survey of Construction data, a majority of new homes that started construction in 2014 included two-car garages.
“Not really a surprise. We talk to homeowners everyday about what they want and need in their new homes,” said Donna Sadowski, vice president of sales and marketing for custom coastal builder, Generation Homes. “Garages for vehicles, bikes, a work area and additional storage is always a consideration when working with homeowners on their ideal design.”
For single-family constructions starts in 2014, 61.9 percent of homes included a two-car garage. Another 23.5 percent of homes possessed a garage large enough to hold three of more cars
“The size of garages in the survey was correlated with home size. The data showed that the two-car garage remains the most common parking option for newly-built homes,” noted Sadowski. “In addition to size and use we work with homeowners on location within in the overall floor plan.”
More than 396,000 homes that began construction in 2014 possessed two-car garages, according to the Census data.
