When you first hear the words “garage addition,” your first thought might be building a garage on a home that doesn’t already have one. That is definitely a valid reason for this type of project, but it is far from being the only one. As is the case with most home improvements, it is never a bad idea to think outside the box a bit if you want to get the most from your investment and solve a problem in the process. Here are a few other options for a garage addition to think about:
- Upgrade a 1-car garage to a 2-car garage or larger- Many older homes were built with just a one-car garage, but today’s families generally have at least two. If you are tired of bickering over whose car gets to be protected and which gets exposed to tree sap, bird droppings, and UV damage, a garage addition to expand your garage is the solution.
- Upgrade to accommodate larger vehicles- A standard garage may not be large enough for trucks or even large SUVs. If you have been wanting a larger vehicle but haven’t gotten one because it won’t fit in your garage, consider upgrading your garage to accommodate the vehicle you desire. Sometimes all it takes is a few feet wider, longer, or taller!
- Upgrade to have storage or hobby space- A garage addition that provides more storage or a place to enjoy woodworking, car restoring, lifting weights, or anything else you have in mind is not just fun for you, but also adds value to your home. Some buyers search for homes that are marketed as having a 1.5- or 2.5-car garage.
- Convert current garage- Another garage addition idea is to build a new garage so that you can convert the current one into additional living space.
