What Is a Tuck-under Garage?

What Is a Tuck-under Garage?
A garage is an important feature for many home buyers.

Features

A tuck-under garage is located under the living area of the home. It is utilized to maximize a small lot size or when a home sits on a hillside.

Drawbacks

Because a tuck-under garage is at a lower level than the living area of the home, disabled people may have problems accessing the garage. This type of garage could also make loading and unloading your vehicle more difficult.

Considerations

The room above a tuck-under garage may be colder than the rest of the living area if adequate insulation is not installed. A proper drainage system should also be designed so water does not seep into the garage.
