Before a customer makes a final decision on the right garage plan or purchases blueprints, we are often asked how much it will cost to build a particular garage design. The experts at The Garage Plan Shop understand this is an important factor in making a final decision, as customers want to be sure they can afford to build the design. However, we know the costs for materials and labor vary greatly from one state to the next and sometimes even within the same city, making it impossible for us to provide an estimate for one of our garages in any specified location. We can’t possibly know all the going rates for materials and labor all across the US and Canada. So, how can you get an estimated cost to build a particular garage plan? We recommend checking with a few local builders or lumberyards. These professionals deal with construction and materials costs on a daily basis and know the going rates for materials and labor in your particular area. Just ask for an estimated cost to build. Often, these professionals will quote a dollar amount per square foot. Be sure to ask what this quote includes as sometimes it will not include foundation materials and a few other things. Checking locally is the best way to get an estimated cost to build for any of our garage plans.
