I have seen limited minto models with 3 car garages but in the most expensive models only worth asking though if you could buy a regular sized model on a larger lot and add it, since none of those homes with the 3 car garages come that way as a standard feature. they dont even show the option on their floors plans which leads me to believe it is an upgrade.

Thanks for the suggestions everybody! We’re looking at richcraft and they seem to be willing to do the larger garage. I’m more than open to any other suggestions.

Richcraft definitely does it.

HN homes has a new model home called Mayfair in Riverside South. That house faces a 35 ft Richcraft model built on a 44 or 50 ft lot with 3 car garages.

Go to the second floor and look from one of the front bedrooms.

HN homes would also do it but I think they are sold out in RS.

Now that is some internet sleuthing!

So yesterday we went to RS to see the HN Mayfair model and see this 3 car garage richcraft home you pointed out.

Just as we park the owner of that house arrives home. We chatted for a few minutes. He confirms it’s definitely doable for richcraft. Put a smaller model on a larger lot. In his case it was a 35’ Baldwin model on a 44’ lot.

Just a heads up, you will be paying an extra 30k (ballpark) to place a smaller house on a bigger lot and another 30k to add a 3rd garage bay.

Since you have no house behind the 3rd garage bay, you can extend it back further (rather than keep the standard 20 feet garage depth). Might be something to explore.

We have a 44' HN home on a 50' lot. The max we could widen our garage on the lot was 5.5'. We ended up widening it a bit so it's 22x22 and the extra few feet makes an extraordinary difference in the winter. No more shimmying around a salty car and still tons of room for our seasonal gear. Quite a few 3 car garages around here, but all on 60' lots.
