Tandem Garage Storage Smarts

load-n-lift spring cleaning article

Urban density trends in larger metro areas in Canada have changed the way residential lots are zoned, and one of the more noticeable ones is how homes are often built on narrower lots than was the case across previous decades before the 1990s. It’s reflected especially strongly in the way townhome developments are built, and nearly every townhome that features a multi-vehicle garage will have a tandem garage. Many detached homes, particularly the brownstones that are common in the Toronto area, will have a tandem garage too.

A tandem garage is one where space is made available for 2 vehicles by length rather than by width, as it is for your standard ‘2-car’ garage with a wide double door. Granted, the tandem is not as practical as a side-by-side car garage, but it’s a design necessity for many homes and if you get a little more creative with the use of space you can incorporate a good bit of storage to go along with parking space for 2 vehicles.
