What is a Basement Garage?

A basement garage is an unusual thing. This style puts the garage beneath the first floor of a home, either detached or as part of a walkout basement. Although it's not the most common configuration in the nation, it's a very practical solution for many situations.

Building with a basement garage floor plan on a narrow lot, for example, solves a square footage question. It's also handy if your lot is on a steep hill or sloped beach.

Who Is a Basement Garage Best For?

A basement garage is excellent for anyone looking to maximize the space they occupy by building up rather than out.

Aging couples, families with toddlers, or anyone with bad knees may opt for an elevator to get safely from floor to floor.
