Building a 2-car detached garage with a shop in back
First, before we get to the details of this garage, we know that not everyone who wants to build a 2-car garage is going to value all of the same features. Whether your top priority is keeping your budget low or something else, be sure to let your estimator know your main interests when you send us an inquiry through our contact form (using the link at the upper left corner of this page).
"Design & build" construction services for your new garage
Generally speaking, most garages are a lot alike, right? Starting with a standard floorplan, it is generally quite easy to add an extra window or side door (like you can see in the photo above).
Or, are you planning on something a little more unique or complicated? For instance, will you want an enclosed attic with an overhead door for convenient access to that space for storage?
Realistically, most people who are looking for a new garage mainly just want a certain size within their budget (plus to have the appearance fit the rest of the home and property). For example, on this garage, you can see the brown trim along the roofline (which perfectly matches the main home).
As for size, this garage is extra deep for two reasons. The first reason is to easily fit the long vehicles owned by the husband of this family (one is a longbed work truck and the other is a "classic" antique). The second reason for the extra depth is to have sufficient room in the back for tool storage as well as a workspace or shop.
Next, what about electricity for that shop? For those who expect to use more than a little electricity (like for an extra freezer, an air conditioner, or even just power tools), then the electrical lines will need to have the capacity to handle more than a few lightbulbs or the garage door opener.
Our garage builders are also general contractors
Last, if you need other home improvements besides the construction of your new garage, let us know. That can be in the interior of your home or just some extra concrete for a longer driveway and the foundation for the new garage that our contractors will build for you.
When you contact us today, you can either request to have a quote on each aspect of the project independently or one quote to include everything. (To contact us now, click here:
