When it comes to home improvement projects, certain things come to mind. Painting, gardening, and finishing a basement are a few common ones people consider. Other people include building a deck or a fence. Here at The Garage Plan Shop, we consider garage building to be a very doable project, and that’s why we have all kinds of garage building plans and garage floor plans. We see and talk to folks who have completed projects from our detached garage plans all the time. And since we’re confident that you can too, we’d like to share a few things we’ve learned along the way.
First of all: you can do it. Believe us. We know this because, at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what your skill level is. You can do some part of the project. Maybe you’ll end up needing to request the help of a few friends, or maybe, if you choose one of the more ambitious garage building plans, you’ll need to hire a contractor—but this doesn’t mean that you can’t begin the project yourself and then see it through to its rewarding completion.
If you have the space on your lot, a detached garage can be an easy project to plan for and see through. Detached garage plans can even be so simple that you may mistake them for a shed plan. They can also be highly complex and contain a living space. Your first step is to consider your needs, wants, and space restrictions. What will fit your lifestyle best? If you are planning on doing the entire project yourself or with friends, you’ll also need to think about which plans are within your skill set.
Regardless of who ends up doing the labor, detached floor plans are as practical as their attached counterparts, and they are so easy to look through and choose that almost anyone can do it. Once you know the size of your space, you’re on your way.
When you begin looking through the plans themselves, don’t worry if you’re not sure about what you exactly want. We’ve seen this before, too. Once you get going you’ll become more familiar with all the types of plans that are out there and you’ll see that you’re suddenly able to narrow things down into a short list of what features you are looking for.
When you get to this point of the project, you’ll also see that building a detached garage probably isn’t as hard as you once thought it was.
