The American Ionic, Doric and Corinthian Garage Eras

A 3 Car Garage, with house attached.
Pictured: A garage with a house attached. Current construction.

The Ionic Garage Era: The "Leave It to Beaver" - a one-income, one-car household. One 50's car in the garage.Chrome bumpers. No seat belts.
"Dad can I borrow the car tonight?"
This garage was not attached.

The Doric Garage Era: An attached garage. Two income family. Walk-out from the kitchen into the garage.

The Corinthian Garage Era: 3 cars,(4 cars if you can get a variance). Strong curb appeal. House attached. Family room optional.

I'm still waiting for the four-car garage to become popular. The entrance to the house will have to be in the back. Welcome to my garage.
