    If it's insulated and temperature controlled, I think it would be suitable.

    Welcome to the forums! Just make sure no wild animals can break into it, that there's no drafts, they aren't exposed to weather, and that it doesn't get too hot, guinea pigs are prone to heat strokes. You'd also want to check on them several times a day.

    Preferably you'd want to house them in doors in a busy room like the living room since they're really good at hiding illnesses and it's hard to notice them if you can't see them all the time but from your description the garage option wouldn't be the worst idea in the world.

    Since you are new to the forums please read the following two guides thoroughly (even if you think you already have good information) and check out all the stickies in the forums:

    Let us know if you have any questions at all!
