A larger 3 or 4-car garage owner may be able to stash their spare tires in a corner and still have enough space for the garage to be functional and allow for indoor parking.

After years of being the home’s dumping ground, the garage floor space starts to gradually disappear. Eventually, the garage becomes so packed that there’s no room to park vehicles anymore. Does this sound familiar?
When renovating your garage, something you should take into consideration is whether or not you want your garage to have windows. Adding windows to the garage can have many benefits, especially if you plan to use your garage for more than just storage.
