Please help minimum width of integral garage
We live in the city and would like to add an integral garage under our house, which is very commonly done here. We have a unique opportunity because we live on a corner and have a very deep front porch. So if you can picture this, we can actually put a garage under our 10 ft. deep x 40 ft. wide front porch, driving in from the side.
The benefit would be that we would lose none of our basement to garage and would not alter the way the house looks from the front.
The downside is this: Although the garage could be 35-40 feet long, it would most likely be about 10 or so feet wide. We will never drive anything larger than our Honda Odyssey and likely will drive something smaller in the future. Perhaps even an electric plug-in since we barely drive. We also don't need this space for anything else. No car repair, storage, bicycles.
We will be able to use a 9 ft. wide door.
With all that said, will this garage be a plus or a misery to use?
Thanks for any feedback you can give me!
