    Wide or long?
    I'd like to see a half width roller door on a house.

    I've notice a house that has just been completed in the neighbourhood that contains, what the Owner thought would be a double garage.. unfortunately a supporting column to the upper level subdivides the garage and each side is too narrow to fit a full size car.. :oops: Looks like they're getting monkey bikes :D

    Really important question - surprising number of new town houses boasting 2 cars garage, but it is tandem. I even saw a house boasting a 4 car garage, and you guessed it: 2 x tandem

    Our garage at home is 2.5

    Has a normal double roller, and access door to one side of the roller.
    Was built as work shop (complete with 3 phase outlet inside)

    A 1.5 space garage is better than a 1 space garage. It's a good idea to extend if you can. Obviously a 2 or 2.5 etc. space is even better. Good for a workshop or storage particularly in a smaller size block where a stand alone shed/workshop isn't an option.

    Haha. We have a 2.5 garage, the 0.5 holds a motorbike, ride on mower, 3 x pushbikes, lawn mower and lots of gardening equipment - very handy to have

    I want a double garage with parking outside for another 1-2 cars, 1 plus 0.5 is useless to us ...

    We do most of ours with longer garages.

    Lack of storage is a major issue in a lot of house designs.

    We saw a place listed as having four bedrooms.

    The fourth bedroom was a bedroom... if you could take the roof off, drop in a single mattress from above and then rehinge the bedroom door to open outwards instead!

    Me: This is the fourth bedroom?
    Agent: Well, it can be a study, a playroom, anything!
