Traditionally, a garage was viewed as a very practical section of the home. Often used for the sole purpose of housing the homeowner’s personal vehicle, it is sometimes nothing more than a cement floor and four walls.
Not all new homes offer a garage with enough space for more than one vehicle, or indeed provide an attached garage at all. While a detached garage is certainly useful, it doesn’t provide direct access to a new home, or protect homeowners from the weather when exiting their vehicle. Clearly, there is a certain convenience and security that attached garages provide. Additionally, it can provide an alternative space for storage, a play or hobby area, a gym, or even a “man cave”. All McKee homes have attached “2 car” garages.
However, some new home buyers may be looking for a larger space to accommodate their lifestyle. To suit these new home buyers, McKee Homes has many floor plans that offer garages at 21” x 21” wide or larger.
McKee Homes Floor Plans with Large Garages
Having a large garage can sometimes mean sacrificing the aesthetic of the front of a new home. Most garage door entrances are placed on front of the home, making a large portion of the façade consist of a bay door. McKee Homes understands that, when possible, a new homeowner may want the option of having the door on one side of the home instead of the front. Because of this, some McKee Homes floor plans offer a side-entry option for new homes, known as a “side-load”. When a new homeowner chooses to build a new home with a side-load, the façade of the home is free of a garage door.
Additional modifications for some McKee Homes floor plans include the option of a third bay garage. These third bay garages are separate spaces that also provide a separate bay door. Adding a third bay garage allows a new homeowner to park in an attached space but have the flexibility of using the traditional space for something other than storing a vehicle.
