Heartland Garage Builders can help you custom plan and build your garage.

Is it finally time to tear down that old dilapidated detached garage that doesn’t fit your lifestyle and consider a new detached garage design plan? Did you know that all detached garages do not have to be cookie-cutter, one-size fits most, and that there are options for you to choose from? When considering an investment as large as a detached garage, it is important to consider your long-term needs as well as your hobbies that could utilize this space. Here are Heartland Garage Builders we want to help you with the process – start to finish!

Municipality and Zoning Regulations  

Just as new home construction allows the home owner to make selections that suite their needs and design taste, custom garage construction allows you to do the same. It is important to note that your municipality plays a large role in determining the placement of your new garage as well as the size, however there are several ways to work with this process to maximize your options.

The location of trees will also be taken in consideration when determining the best placement for your new detached garage. If needed, it can be arranged for trees to be removed for both placement and to ensure the root system does not affect the structure.

The Size Of The Garage Needed

Homeowners with several drivers, for example, or custom car collectors may desire a two or three-car garage with room for additional storage, not simply their cars.  It is also important to take your hobbies into consideration. If you are going to spend time in your garage throughout the year you may want to look into options for electricity and additional windows. Some hobbies will require extra ventilation or space for work benches with lighting or specific tools that may require build outs on the structure that a standard detached garage would not allow for.

Storage for items such as snow blowers, lawnmowers, sports paraphernalia, and additional house-hold items should also be taken into consideration when determining how much additional space is needed above the garage or behind it.   

When building your ideal detached garage, it is important to put all of the options on the table to see what ideas can be built into reality. At Heartland Garage Builders, we know that such a project is a large investment of both time and finances, and our goal is to make this experience as smooth and pleasant as we can.
