You’re grateful for your big family, but you’re also worried that you might be running out of space, especially considering the fact that everyone at home has their own car now!
Squeezing them all in the driveway is not always an option. But luckily, you may have some extra space on your property where you could incorporate a detached garage.
Let’s take a closer look at why detached garages can be a great option.
The Benefits of a Detached Garage
According to the experts at Great House Design, one of the leading residential design firms in the US, affordability isn’t the only benefit of having a detached garage!
- It’s Safe
Aside from keeping you safe from potential break-ins, a detached garage is an option because you get separate space to store potentially dangerous materials and items, such as propane tanks, spray cans, and other potentially harmful chemicals.
- There’s Potential for Expansion
Need an extra room or two for a guest? Have it built within your detached garage! While you can’t always add space to your pre-existing home, there’s a lot of potential for space in your garage or shop area. This can be as simple as building rooms into your attic trusses, or adding dormers to create an even ceiling height throughout.
Alternatively, living spaces can be added to the same floor as your garage or shop. By incorporating walls with thicker insulation, a garage or shop can be transformed into an ADU (accessory dwelling unit) that allows for the perfect in-law suite!
