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.
Garage Addition Ideas
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.
Attached Garage Addition Before and After
Owings Brothers Contracting can help you design and build a beautiful garage addition for any home in a variety of styles. Attached garages are the most common design style. Attached garage additions provide easy access to the home interior, which is especially convenient in bad weather conditions. See some of our completed projects in the attached garage addition before and after images below.
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.
