Garage Additions

Detached garage with barn doors

Home for Your Cars

Some important decisions to be made when building a garage is the size. Do you need a one or two car garage and some homeowners even desire a three car garage. The resale value of a two or three car garage is much better, since most households have at least two vehicles. Do you desire extra storage? If so than the size of your garage will need to be based on these decisions. Will the garage be attached to your home or detached? Detached garages are usually more inexpensive, because tying the addition into your home isn’t needed, which can require a more complicated and costly remodel. Whatever your preference, do your homework regarding values in your neighborhood and make the decision whether you will be staying in your home long enough to balance out the cost of a garage addition.

Three-Car Garage Construction

In this featured project, a new three-car garage was built, reorienting the driveway and an added bonus space above the garage for an in-home office.

Two-Car Garage Construction

In this project, due to the overwhelming presence of natural stone, a low knee wall of stone was incorporated to create a courtyard feeling in the new design. Additionally, we incorporated carriage-style garage doors to enhance the curb appeal as you approach the home from its new driveway. We connected the new garage with an enclosed breezeway to create function and enhance the courtyard concept. Concrete pavers were chosen for the driveway and add a warm and cottage-feel to the home.

Detached Garage Addition Before and After

When remodeling or building a new house, many homeowners enjoy the flexibility of size and location provided by a detached garage addition. Detached garages can offer secure and quiet space away from the main home. They also moderate the effects of a garage-dominated home design that sometimes occurs with attached garages, especially in smaller houses. Please view some of Owings Brothers Contracting’s completed detached garage addition before and after images below.

As an older couple, we needed a total conversion of our master bathroom into a handicapped accessible bathroom. From our first meeting, we knew we were dealing with total professionals. Our work started on the date stated and completed on the date stated. Each and every tradesman was accomplished, efficient and very kind. All our questions and concerns were addressed quickly. Our bathroom is functional and stunning. We are so glad we chose Owings.read more

My wife and I used Owings Brothers for several projects over the past six years. Initially, we interviewed 4 different contractors. Owings Brothers was the clear winner then and remains so. We no longer seek other bids. Their work goes beyond quality to true craftsmanship. They transformed our kitchen into a thing of beauty. Most recently, they remodeled one of our bathrooms. What was once old and drab is now shiny, beautiful, and very functional. We have at at least three more projects lined up for them in coming years. In addition to quality work, they have relationships with the top vendors for granite, tile, cabinets, and appliances. When a neighbor asked for our recommendation, we provided Joe Smith's number and email address at Owings Brothers. We would not consider using anyone else. They are like family.read more

We interviewed about a dozen contractors and firms to do our first floor and kitchen renovation in Silver Spring, MD. Owings Brothers was by far the most efficient, resourceful and transparent. We could not have made a better decision and intend to use them again for future projects. Owings Brothers uses a program called Co-Construct that allows you to keep tabs on the job from an app on your phone and a portal website through a browser on your computer. Everyone in their company is trained on using Co-Construct and all activity, purchasing, financials and progress is documented through this application. The foreman loads daily photographs of the work and all questions are answered through the app, so anyone participating in your project can see the documentation. You never have to wait for a response from the company and you can always log on to check on all activity with your account. Owings Brothers supplements this digital communication with a prompt text, email or phone call whenever needed. Our job took about 3 months and was completed on time. John, our foreman was exceptional. He communicated with us clearly, anticipated problems, kept his tradesmen on task and on schedule. His craftsmanship was great and he always left our house as clean and tidy as possible at the end of the work day. Once we got into the mindset of undergoing construction, it was as pleasant a situation as possible. John oversaw the job with obvious skill and knowledge. Also, Owings Brothers provides a warranty on all their work. This causes them to do it right the first time. If not, they’ll come out to tend to any repairs. Doing your homework and interviewing multiple firms will allow you to see how exceptional Owings Brothers Construction is.read more

From start to finish, our custom new home built by Owings Brothers Contracting, was done with great care and expertise. From the design phase, through the building process, our project manager, and each subcontractor carefully consulted one another, and us, to make sure each phase was done with excellence, and openness in communication and workmanship. As a family business, an atmosphere of open dialogue created flexibility within our floor plan, as well as careful progress planning each month during construction. Even as the job is completed now, we still experience careful followup of any additional changes or alterations, as necessary. The overall experience has been outstanding and my wife and I are grateful for such a beautiful and practical home. Thank you Owings Brothers!read more
