Building a garage is usually left to a professional, but it can be done by a homeowner with a little know-how and a desire to learn. Home Lumber and Décor is standing by, willing and able, to help with advice on this or any other home improvement project. Building a garage is not simple, but it can be an excellent choice for a home improvement project. Building a garage can also be profitable as it may increase the value of your property in case you want to sell in the future. Therefore, think of building a garage as something you can enjoy now and possibly as an important investment.
The main steps involved in planning the construction of a garage are the following: determining your needs (consider the size of your vehicles, and any plans you may have of buying more vehicles) , determining the size of the garage based upon those needs, and finally, buying or designing plans based upon all you have learned through this process. Once you’ve got your plans together, you’ll have to coordinate with the city or county in which you plan to build to arrange permits, inspections and perhaps even re-zoning requests. Remember Home Lumber and Décor will be glad to help you with your planning process.
Of course, the major influence on the cost of your project will be the size of the garage. Adding windows to the structure itself and also to the garage doors will also add to the cost. In addition costs will depend on the type of siding you choose, such as brick, wood or vinyl and other deluxe features such as heating and air-conditioning that you may choose to add. But remember, we at Home Lumber and Décor will be glad to help you work through various scenarios to help you determine the best fit for your budget.
Garages can be a great addition to your home and appraisal value. They have many uses and are always a great addition to any home or property.
