The smallest dimensions of a two car garage which we recommend would be a 20x20 Two Car Garage. This allows for the placement of two 8'x7' Overhead garage doors in addition to an entrance door and two windows on the sidewalls.

Sheds Unlimited also offers the option of upgrading to a 16'x7' Door versus two 8'x7' doors. While a 20x20 two car garage can house two cars, it will likely be a tight fit to place two cars in the building. For that reason, we recommend going just a bit larger on your TWO CAR GARAGE DIMENSIONS to a 24x24 building. By choosing this size you will have room and some to spare. Extra room in a two car garage will most likely be appreciated in the future.
