What is a side loading garage?
Simply so, how much room do you need for a side entry garage?
Side-Entry Garage. A driveway designed for access to a side-entry garage should allow enough room to easily move your vehicles in and out of the garage. We recommend a minimum distance of 30 feet from the garage door to the edge of the pavement, and a distance of 35 feet or more is ideal.
Additionally, what is tandem garage? A tandem garage is a two-car garage (double garage), but built so that one car parks in front of the other.
Keeping this in consideration, which side of house should Garage be on?
I'd prefer a garage on the north side of a house and lots of windows on the south end of the house. Garage on the east or west would be ok, in that order.
