I am building on a narrow lot (10.5x29)
I am planning to live in it initially with the possibility of long term OR using as an investment (I haven't decided until I am in it and see what I prefer).
I don't plan on having a big family or anything so was looking at doing a 3 bed 2 bath.
My question is what would be more valuable to a buyer - Do I do a double garage which means I will only have room for a small study/laundry at the front OR do I do a single garage and then have room for a 4th bedroom?
The front faces W so I assume it would get hot in summer if not protected right.
Some people say go the extra room for resale value others say - no way families need a double garage and single garages aren't enough!!

Thinking of the 5-10 year old future when car sharing/private car rentals become more affordable and accessible on one side and "on demand" autonomous cars on the other side, even single car garages will be possibly remaining to be used by some "manual" car enthusiasts only.
On the other side, work remotely/work from home clearly becomes another trend for the next couple of dozen years, so having extra room(s) for home office (or offices) will be definitely helpful/useful.
