Double Garages made from ethically sourced timber
Our most popular type of building is our timber double garage. Our double garages are made from the highest quality timber to be found; sourced from beautiful and towering Redwood trees (Sequoia sempervirens) from Northern Sweden. We only work with a premium quality timber manufacturer to ensure that your double garage is made to last and is of exceptional quality.
Here at Passmores, we care not only care about the quality of our products but also about the environment as well. Our expert craftsmen only use timber that has been ethically harvested to protect Sweden’s forests. For every tree that is harvested, two more are planted, ensuring the forests are never depleted.
Double timber garages that are versatile and built to last
All our timber double garages are built in the UK, which means that quality control is first class, and they are built to last. Whether you need a larger space to park more everyday vehicles, safely protect your classic car from the elements or want to have a double garage with a workshop, we have the option for you. There’s plenty of room for vehicles, as well as garden machinery or as a space to store tools.
All our timber double garages are designed in-house, and hand made in our factory in Rochester, Kent. This includes our prefab double garage kits. These double garage kits are available for customers that wish to try their hand at erecting their own timber garage or getting a local builder to do it. If you have a number of vehicles and are wondering whether a 2 car garage is enough, you could always opt for a triple garage.
All buildings that arrive in kit form are 100% complete with everything you need to put your double garage together, right down to the nuts and bolts. If this isn’t something you’re interested in, we have a team of professional builders ready to arrive with your large garage to construct it for you.
You can design your own double garage on our website from a range of styles available, ensuring your investment is built perfectly to your needs. We have a wide array of finishes for the roof of your garage to match your home and your preferred style. You can choose from natural slate tiles, red roman roof tiles or handmade clay roof tiles. You can also select the pitch of the roof and choose the door and window options.
If you are searching for an open-fronted building, then why not check out our range of Open Barns and Carriage Houses. These are a slightly different style and give you the flexibility of having an open car bay with enclosed space alongside. You could also opt for a double garage workshop, such is the versatility of our wooden garage range. For more double garage inspiration, check out our Wooden Garages Styles Gallery.
Do you need planning permission for a double garage in the UK?
Under UK double garage planning laws, wooden garages are categorised as outbuildings. Whether you need planning permission hinges on the size of the double garage you want, how high it is and where you plan to put it.
The regulations that cover outbuildings are the same as those that apply to other outside buildings like greenhouses or sheds. Most do not require permission from the local authority unless your home is a listed property or in a conservation area.

Double bay garage FAQs
How many cars can I fit in a double bay garage?
You can comfortably fit two standard-sized cars in a double bay garage. It also depends on the size of your cars, but people typically fit two cars in a double bay garage. Of course, if you have a Range Rover or similar (which is common), this will limit the door space to some degree. We suggest reviewing the measurements on our garage calculator page. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 01634 290033.
What is the best size for a double bay garage?
The recommended (and most popular) size for a 2 car garage is 24×24. Unless you are buying a prefabricated double garage kit, we can work with you on designing and building a double garage to your unique specifications.
Do double bay garages have concrete flooring?
We can work whatever type of flooring you would like in your double bay garage that is in line with the aesthetic of your home. Many clients opt for concrete or tile flooring that they have installed through a specialist company. We then install the garage on top of the flooring.
