- Courtyard garages create an automatic set-back for the home, with space for kids to play safely away from the road

- Courtyard garages allow for an attractive front exterior with additional windows possible

Why shouldn't you choose a courtyard entry garage floor plan?

- Courtyard garages can limit front yard grassy areas

- A courtyard garage home is usually a little more "spread out", which may result in a slightly higher cost per square foot compared to a traditional "stacked" home

- Courtyard garages may require extra care in choosing a lot to allow for a deeper home foundation.
