Large garage or storage building
Featuring two stories of clearspan space the Jefferson makes for an excellent choice to use as a single-car garage, large storage building, or perhaps a workshop. This garage is designed to accommodate either a 9ft. or 8ft. wide garage door. The garage door is not included which allows the homeowner to purchase the style and color of their choice. If you’re considering a workshop or storage building other door types can be installed instead of a garage door. The choice is yours.
