When it comes to being a homeowner, there are a lot of details and specifics that you have to take on before you can move forward with anything that could be a life altering decision that you will have to potentially end up spending a fortune to renovate something different. Thinking about a house renovation or new home build can be stressful and time consuming. Here are a few simple points to assist your decision when it comes to figuring out whether to go with an attached garage or a non-attached garage.
What are the purposes and intentions for your garage? Detached garages can come to use for many homeowners that have a big lot type. Even though a detached can swallow up an enormous chunk of your existing yard, if you’re looking to start a work shop or auto shop that you have always dreamed about, then a detached version can offer you more space privacy, and also will limit noise for your neighbors and people in the house than a garage that’s directly attached. In the end, attached models can prevent safety hazards if you will be storing a lot of fuel, oil and other materials that put off harmful fumes. You would not have to worry about those chemicals leaking into your home with a detached garage model.
Attached models are relatively new in the world of homebuilding. An attached garage unit is really just a large home addition which will be adding quite a bit to your structure. Some people also consider avoiding having to trump through rain and snow to get to your vehicle on intemperate mornings, and we all know here in Texas, weather can shock and surprise us when we least expect it to. Ultimately, if that’s the main concern, then an attached garage with direct access to your home is undeniably the way to go.
Your plan can consist of three important things in your plan: security, storage, and building.
Securities between attached and detached both have their own issues, but presumably, you are building this garage to put processions of value in it. Whether it’s classic cars, electronics, motorcycles, or anything else of value, make sure everything is protected.
Whether it’s, cabinets, shelving or overhead storage, your plans may be to have this space be a workshop or office, but guarantee to start storing things in it because it will be empty. Make sure to plan ahead for organizing the stuff that will appear once your garage is built. It is also important to keep in mind that there is no such thing as too much room. Over 75% of the homes that we go to in the Dallas area are more than 3/4 full of vehicles and/or storage, and almost every customer mentions the fact that they wish they had one more cars worth of garage space.
When planning on the final layout and build of the space, remember, even if you aren’t planning on using this as a living space, it is much easier and cheaper to insulate during the build than to figure out later that you need A/C or a heat component in there. If you are not certain that this will be livable space, opt for the least expensive insulation option.
Take a look at these reasons that are either for or against your needs when it comes to these two common designs to help you decide which common style is best suited for your needs.
