If you are planning on adding an addition to your garage, here are some things to consider. First and foremost, research the laws of zoning in your area. This process will eliminate issues arising later. Next thing to consider is having an attached or not attached garage. Consider if you are interested in a one or two car garage. If you are considering a two car garage, the driveway needs to be wide enough as well. The last couple things to consider is the round about cost of the project and who will be getting it done.
- Some people want to use this space for something other than putting vehicles in there.
- There are individuals who convert this space into a living arrangement for more square footage.
- The bottom line is that some people simply do not need a place to store vehicles as they do not have any.
“The Housing Forum recommends an attached garage if you just need something in which to park your cars. This is a less expensive option because one wall will already be in place. A detached garage would be the choice in which to have a workshop where you want to shield the house from the noise of power tools.”
