Of the many home improvement projects you might be considering, a new custom garage is guaranteed to increase the resale value and desirability of your home. In addition to protecting your vehicles, a garage provides a multitude of uses from storage and work areas, to additional living space, and if you plan and build it correctly, a new garage can add charm and character to your home. Working with you, Carter Construction will develop construction drawings that meet your needs and your budget. Whether you want a single story traditional garage, or add a second story apartment, we’ve built it before.
Somethings to consider when planning your garage:
- typically, each vehicle requires 10 feet in width and 20 to 22 feet in depth, but if you have an over-sized pickup, you’ll need at least 12 feet in width and 24 feet in depth.
- Do you want a traditional 24-30” man door in your garage, or would a wider 36” be easier to move your over-sized items into storage?
- What items are you planning on storing in the garage? Lawnmowers don’t take up much space, but seasonal items like snowmobiles, bicycles, canoes/kayaks and motorcycles require more space planning. An off-center overhead door will provide more uninterrupted storage on one side of the garage for these items.
Whether you’re looking to increase your property value, keep the rain and cold away from your vehicles, add an apartment living area or need a workshop in you garage , Carter Construction Inc. has the expertise to build it right.
