I built a temporary garage off the side of the house using the driveway slab as my floor. I have space to walk around my car and 5 extra feet on the side for storage/working. There are no shingles on the nearly flat, one sided roof and no wall along the house, just a 2x4 brace. I installed a row of flourescent lights along the house. The people door consists of a 2x8' sheet between 24" center framing and the car door swings sideways on two hinges and is 8' wide by 6' high. The garage dimentions are 14'x20'x(8'8"-9'1"). I have a 2' overhang on the 20' wall and left the spaces between the roof and wall open for ventilation/light. Total cost was $572 canadian. Took me 2 days to put 'er up. Doing a high quality complete frame off restore of my '69 Camaro. BEAT THAT!
