ASL: "garage"


The concept of "a garage" is shown by using a "horizontal 3" hand shape to depict a vehicle driving forward to a location under a roof.

If you use a single movement it will typically mean:  "a car driving into a garage" or "a car pulling-in under a carport."

To sign "garage" in general (as a noun) use a double movement.

Compare "garage" to "SUBWAY."  (The orientation and hand shape of the dominant hand is different.)
