Garage-ism, garageism, garageist
The blog frequently finds itself asking "Why is this house ugly?" The answer most often has to do with the prominent placement of the garage. The blog is thinking hard about this topic, and therefore needs a term to describe the phenomenon of "garage up front." The obvious terms for this architectural trend are given in the title of this post. A search of the internet reveals that garageism often refers to music produced by garage rock bands, that garageist is a type of wine (really), and that garage-ism is rarely used. So, garage-ism it will be.
