Is your current home missing the perfect garage? Adding a much-needed garage or replacing a run down or inadequate garage can make a huge impact on your home and your way of life.
Reasons to Build a Garage
A free-standing garage plan can contribute greatly to your property’s value by:
- Increasing storage space for cars and recreational equipment. Garages can protect equipment, family vehicles, and boats by providing indoor, climate controlled storage.
- Providing additional living space and a great guest spot for visitors and family members. Many garage plans include full apartments, guest rooms, kitchenettes, and bathrooms.
- Increasing the value of your property as a whole. Well-built, well-designed garages also have the potential to increase the resale value of your existing home.
- Reducing theft of your vehicle and lessens the chances of fading your car’s paint job by storing it in your secured garage
Tips For Selecting a Garage Plan
When selecting a plan from our over 300 garage plans, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- Consider your current and future needs. Is it your goal to have a riding lawn mower in the future? Or a boat? Or multiple cars? It’s important to define what you will need in the future in order to select the right size garage plan.
- Do you need to include extra living spaces in your garage plan? Do you think you might need an entire apartment area, complete with a kitchen, full bathroom, and possibly a laundry room above your garage? If so, select a garage plan that includes an apartment or living space.
- Before selecting a garage plan, confirm it meets your town or county’s building codes.
- Make sure that the style of the garage compliments your existing home. Selecting a garage plan that fits in with the existing property is important, especially considering the potential for return on investment and resale viability.
