Would you like a two story garage with a lott ? What about an apartment on the 2nd floor ? Office or Bathroom on the 1st floor?

Garage additions are an effective means to use your property to its best advantage. A garage addition allows you to house not only cars, but boats, hobbies, or your mother-in-law. They may be built separately with high bays for mechanic’s lifts or with space for a fully functional greenhouse, workshop, or artist’s studio. It can be detached as a completely separate building or attached for easy access to the main house. A second story might easily serve as a large playroom for the kids or an elegant master suite. Depending on the style of your home, you can add a carriage house with an apartment upstairs or a small guest house with a single bay for a car.

Would you like a new garage attached to your home with a covered roof overhang ?
A garage addition or remodel allows you to gain extra space, develop a rental unit that you can easily supervise and maintain, or establish a home office out of the house. By the optimizing its location, you can diminish the importance of your garage so your house becomes the focal point of your property. And a garage addition can also enhance property value.

Planning your garage addition

The following tips may help you decide how to incorporate a garage addition:
Most communities now are governed by a Home Owners Association or CC & R’s. Consider checking to see which applies & contact someone to see if what you want to do can be done.
Make a laundry list of what you want the new addition to house. If you want a workshop or a studio your requirements will be different than someone who needs to create a fully functional apartment.

We help you match the details of the existing home. Match siding, roof pitch, trim and gable style.

Location matters. If you want the garage visible from the street, do you want it to look like a garage? Can you move the garage elsewhere to better effect?

Keep the proportions and scale of the new garage from overwhelming the house. If your house is small and cottagy, consider building a garage far enough from the house that it looks more like a barn than a garage. Otherwise, it will look funny.

Plan for good access to the house. A breezeway or mud room can provide great access and a place to store wet jackets, backpacks, and boots.

How many vehicles and what type do you want to house? Two cars and a boat? Plan for adequate room to get in and out of vehicles and to get them in and out of the garage easily.
Consider adding pull-down stairs for additional storage. It’s a good place to store anything that doesn’t require air conditioning or heating.
And on the subject of storage: add a workbench and heavy duty shelving and storage for yard tools, bicycles, or other bulky hard to store items.
