No matter how big your home is, you probably think that you need a bit more space. You are not alone, as increasing square footage is a major factor in the decision to renovate. This also applies to the garage, which for most people is more than just a place to park their cars. You probably use your garage as a workshop, seasonal storage, maybe even storage for items that you are not even sure you need, but want to hold onto just in case. If you don’t want it to get to the point where you are parking outside, you will have to deal with your space limitations quickly.
In the interim, you can take a few steps to make better use of the space you have. If you have tools, do not keep them in boxes on the floor. Mount a pegboard on the wall so that they will be out of the way and you can access them easily. Using your vertical space effectively will give you more floor space. As much as possible, install shelves so that you no longer have to put items in boxes that you have to store on the floor.
Expand Your Garage
If these steps are not enough to create the amount of space you need, then you may need to think about a garage expansion. One of the first things you will have to get out of the way is the proper authorization for this type of work. We will need to see how much, if any yard space is available. At Hendren Construction, we know how to go about securing all the necessary permits for garage construction or expansion.
Next, we will need to develop a budget to determine how much work you can really afford. A newer or improved garage can help to increase the value of your home. Therefore, any improvement will be money well invested.
The type of lighting, siding, interior paint, and windows will also be important points of consideration as you seek more garage space. You will have a number of choices at your disposal, so don’t be in a hurry to select. We have worked on a variety of garage building and expansion jobs, and we can make yours another success. Call us when you realize that your garage is no longer big enough, and let us show you what a difference an updated space will make.
