National Garage Condo Day 2023: National Garage Condo Day is annually observed on September 21. It was established in 2020 by Garage Condos, L.L.C. as a day of appreciation for garage condominiums that have improved the lives of consumers. Garage condos are storage units in the form of a rentable garage equipped with electricity, climate control, water, and 24-hour access. Since their inception in 1999, garage condos have provided consumers with ample space in which to store their belongings securely and safely.
National Garage Condo Day 2023: HISTORY
In 1912, architects began praising the utility of a “new type of outbuilding” referred to as a “garage.” The term was derived from the French word ‘garer,’ which means’shelter.’ Prior to this, horses and automobiles shared carriage houses. Before garages were exclusively private, enormous garages were constructed by individuals who rented parking space to car owners. However, these public garages were inconvenient because car owners had to travel away from their residences to store their vehicles. Soon thereafter, garages began to replace carriage houses on private properties.
C.G. Johnson devised the first overhead garage door in 1921, which consisted of hinged panels that bent as the door was raised. After five years, Johnson devised the first electric garage door opener. His invention brought electricity to the modern garage, which led to the notion that the garage could also serve as a home office.
Taking cues from earlier public garages, garage residences were developed in 1999 and have since provided consumers with convenience.
