Building Your Dream Garage
A garage can be so much more than just a place to park your car. If the time has come for you to work with a custom garage builder to create a new garage, you have the opportunity to design a building that meets all of your specific needs. Taking the time to plan from the start of the project will repay you at the completion when you are able to unveil your true dream garage.
The first question to ask yourself is why you have decided to build a new garage now? Have you outgrown your current space? Perhaps your family is growing and a larger automobile – or an additional one – means you need more space. Are you hoping to create not just parking, but also additional storage space? Need a place for a tool bench where you can get into those handyman projects you’ve been meaning to begin? How about an apartment above the garage for your college student who’s coming back home?
Once you’ve determined the purpose of your new garage, it’s a good idea to lay out a floor plan so you can get a sense of how many square feet of space you’ll need to meet that need. Where would you like the cars to be parked? Where would you want to set up that tool bench? The exterior appearance of your garage is also something to consider at this point. Will there be windows? One large double overhead door or two individual doors? You’ll want an architectural style that compliments your home’s style, with an appropriate color scheme and façade. Does it match the look of your home?
The materials used to build and outfit your new garage should also be chosen with consideration of the structure’s purposes. Do you expect you’ll spend much time working on your car in this garage? Then you’ll want to find a flooring material that will be easy to clean oil and grease from. Tinkering with gadgets in your new workspace? Strong lighting and lighter colors will make it less likely that a dropped screw will blend into its surroundings and become lost.
