What does everyone think of basement garages? A lot of times basement space is underused, so if building a house why not landscape to have the garage in the basement? Smaller footprint for the house, better use of the basement if a lot of it would otherwise sit unused. Biggest downside I can see is having to climb stairs with lots of groceries. Sporting equipment would just stay in the garage. The noise of the garage door might be annoying. Anyone have a basement garage?
