Reading time: 1 minutes

In the last 90 years, the garage has changed the way we live. The converted carriage house has become an integral part of the home.

Approximately 80% of homes today have a garage. In the US, 17% of new homes (single-family dwelling) have a 3-car garage or more!

People aren’t using their garages for just storing vehicles anymore. The garage has evolved and become a multi-purpose space for storage, entrepreneurs, man caves, garage bands and home gyms.

According to an infographic from IFA Insurance company, more than 50% of homeowners want a garage that their neighbors envy.
