Without a garage, you’re missing out on several benefits that can add value to your home or cottage. Let’s review below to find out what those are.
Living in Canada we all know how irritating it is to brush off the car, hack off the ice, wait for the windows to defrost and the car to warm up before driving to work. Having a garage seems like a luxury in consideration to the later and imagine being able to actually get into your car and drive to work without the added hassle! Whether you plan to use a new garage to store your car and seasonal items and off-season vehicles, create a new work space, or simply earn passive income by renting the garage out, building a detached garage will definitely increase the value of your property.
Add an Extra Room to Your Home
With a well-designed layout you have the option for attic loft storage in the trusses, adding custom-built cabinetry for tools and so much more. In fact, you can even design a garage with a second level that can be used as a nanny suite, guest house, or a separate space for that son or daughter who isn’t ready to leave the nest (but mom and dad want their house back)!
Working from home is becoming extremely popular and most often with the average family, there is no additional space in an existing home to use for an office space. Many small business owners with families are purchasing a move up property and building a detached garage. Aside from the added resale value, this investment has many perks as the garage can be used as an office to suit their interim needs, as a storage location, and down the road this property may serve as an income property. Planning ahead with the necessary plumbing, electrical and heating requirements is critical to keep the garage as multi-functional as possible.
Storage at the Cottage
Let’s go to the lake! For those who have the benefit of owning a summer property, we all know right away the toys that will be a part of the territory. With that said although there may be storage location options near your vacation home, the biggest factor is the monthly or yearly costs for the storage of your seasonal toys. Many summer property owners are building a garage on their own land so they can have the quick accessibility as well as the future storage cost savings. Why pay rent to someone else when the benefit should go into your own pocket? Whether you are storing a boat, Jet Ski, ATV, snowmobile, or a combination of these, your garage can also be designed to maximize storage with loft attic storage, or serve as a sleeping space for cottage guests.
