side-entry garage openings that face the front door...

12 years ago

I am guessing that the reason this arrangement is so popular is that, like front-entry garages, they allow smaller lot sizes. Except...I am seeing them now on a lot of larger luxury homes, too. I can't warm up to this idea due to the fact that it makes the area directly in front of the home and entry into sort of a motor court, something I don't really find appealing. I much prefer grass and plantings to be what I step onto outside the front door and keep what I consider utilitarian car related hard surfaces to the side or back, but again, larger lot required. Even the front entry is preferable to this inward-facing side entry IMO. Modifications, anyone, lol?
