Attached Garage Building
Attached garages are considered the less expensive option of the two. Its easier to build three walls rather than whole new structure. You can have either an open plan (no walls, just a roof), or you can enclose the whole space with walls. They can also be a good place to store fridges, freezers and other secondary supplies. The best benefit of this garage is keeping out of inclement weather. By having an entryway from your home to the garage, you avoid snow, rain or other bad weather as you get into your car.
- room for storage
Detached Garage Building
Detached garages are more expensive than attached, but they can be beneficial for the cost. If you dont have room next to an entryway, you can build a detached garage behind the house or in a space that can fit one. These are also safer because you wont get any carbon monoxide coming in to your house. You can also make the detached garage a secondary living space, if you add a loft space above it. While it costs more to start from scratch, you can see a lot of long-term benefits and ROI.
- Room for work space
- Larger area for garage building
- Larger storage capabilities
- Loft Living space
Cost of Building A Garage
How much does it cost to build a garage? That isn’t an easy question to answer because there are so many different design options and variables you need to consider first. Here are a few:
- How level is the area where the garage will be built?
- Will the garage be built on an alley or drive in from the street?
- Concrete, asphalt or gravel driveway?
- Vinyl, wood stucco, steel, fiber cement or LP SmartSide siding?
- What type of roof style and roof truss?
