Residential Garage Garages that are not connected to the home may use a different style of construction from the house. Often in the Southern and rural United States garages not attached to the home and made from a timber frame with sheet metal coverings are known as "pole barns", but usually serve the same purpose as what is called a garage elsewhere. In some places, the term is used synonymously with "carport", though that term normally describes a structure that, while roofed, is not completely enclosed. A carport protects the vehicle to some degree from inclement weather, but it does not protect the vehicle from theft or vandalism.
Residential Garage The word garage, introduced to English in 1902, originates from the French word garer, meaning shelter. By 1908 the architect Charles Harrison Townsend was commenting in The Builder magazine that; for the home of the car, we very largely use the French word garage, alternatively with what I think the more desirable English equivalent of motor house.
The least expensive alternative is a portable kerosene or propane garage heater. But a kerosene garage heater and a propane garage heater are a poor choice. They require ventilation (think open door) and pump gallons of water vapor into your garage. That means working with a constant cold draft and putting up with smelly exhaust and burning eyes. Then theres the issue of rust on your tools from all that humidity. A kerosene or propane garage heater just isn’t a good solution if you work in the garage regularly.
Residential garage insulation In northern climates, temperatures inside an uninsulated attached residential garage can decrease to freezing levels during the winter. Temperatures inside an uninsulated attached garage in temperate climates can reach uncomfortable levels during summer months. Extreme temperatures can be a source of energy waste and discomfort in adjoining living areas, due to heat transfer between the garage and those areas. Homes with an attached garage often experience this interface problem. Insulating the outside of the building against the elements without extending the insulation to the wall separating the garage from the house, and/or the other garage walls and roof, can be a costly mistake.
