56 Garage Attached Garage Design Photos And Ideas

The modern garage can be more than a mere storage space or a place to house your car—it can just as likely accomodate family activities or serve as an exterior design element.

The inspired examples below are a testament to the range and diversity of the modern garage.

While the idea of a motorcycle shed might not initially scream "elegant she shed," there's a lot to love in this shed by Drop Structures.
