Ways to Use Your Outdoor 12×16 Garage

How else can you use a 12×16 portable garage in New York? Let’s look at some ways you can transform your garage space when you no longer need it for your vehicle or if you want to use it for something else entirely. Here are three creative ideas.

Home Gym

What if you didn’t have to travel 20 minutes to the gym several days a week? Convert a 12×16 prefab garage into a home gym and save some money on that gym membership! Add electricity to your gym and climate control it if you like, or add additional windows for better ventilation. Consider decorating it to show your creativity and inspire motivation in your workouts. Add hooks or shelves on the wall for better equipment storage, and mirrors on the wall to gauge your progress and open up the space a bit more.


Are you looking for some additional space to exercise your green thumb? Turn your outdoor garage space into a plant haven! Add some windows and roof vents for good ventilation and insulate your garage to climate control it. Consider your heating system in the cold months and ways to keep your greenhouse garage cool in the hot months. Think of the different plants you want, and add shelving or hooks to store garden tools and display plants.


Do you need some additional space to work on your projects? Consider turning your 12×16 prefab garage (or part of it) into a workshop. Add ventilation to make it a more comfortable work area and electricity for your power tools. Extra shelving for your equipment or a table area for your projects could also turn your garage into an effective workshop.
