Home for Your Cars


Building Garage Additions

Building a garage is a big project, and homeowners build one for different reasons. A garage addition can be used to store extra cars, ATVs, boats, or an RV. It could also give you a place to work out or create a home shop. It typically is used to provide safety for your vehicles and keep them looking new for much longer than if they were exposed to the elements.
Is a Garage Addition Right for You?
Before deciding to add a garage on your property, there are several things to consider. First and foremost you need to know if zoning code restrictions will prevent it. Though it may look like you have a lot of room between your house and the street, this can be deceiving. Property lines rarely start at the street. Of course, if your neighborhood is governed by a homeowners association (HOA), that could be another set of rules you have to comply with. ArcDesign can help you with this.

Locating and Sizing the Garage
Once you've established that adding a garage to your property is feasible with respect to zoning codes, location and size is the next step to establish. Unless you have a very large home, the garage could take up a large portion of the face of the building and can dominate its appearance. While there are entire neighborhoods made up of homes like this, these "snout houses" are not very attractive, and it's a design you should try to avoid.

  • I have worked with ArcDesign on two home renovation projects; ranging from a master bathroom/closet addition to an extensive major home remodel. They have been wonderful to work with! Everyone in their office is professional, easy to communicate with, and architecturally talented! They are always quick to respond to any questions or requests, and truly care about bringing our vision to life exactly as we want it. Ben meticulously designed our dream home. His attention to detail and our desires really showed during the entire process. We highly recommend them!

  • I was very impressed with Arc Design. Randy worked with me till we got everything that I wanted in the plan for my mother-in-law apartment. He was very patient and listened to everything that I said and all of my ideas and it turned out exactly how I wanted it. He had great ideas that I didn't think of and I am looking forward to the build. I highly recommend this firm.

Why You Should Build a Garage Addition

Garage additions are a great investment that add value to your home and create a highly functional space for keeping cars protected from the elements as well as for storage.

Beauty and function combine with garage additions. We believe a garage should become a visual asset to the overall design of your house. Also, life becomes a little easier when there's a place for everything and everything's in its place.

Garage additions take various forms and we design them with several different specifications. Garages can be attached to your existing home or can be designed as a separate, detached structure. Detached garages have different zoning restriction than attached garages. Your decision ought to be based on your needs.

Our talented team of designers and draftsmen will work with you to create a design for garage additions based on your needs and wants.
