Let’s face it, cars are multiplying, hobbies need space, and sometimes, you just need a dedicated workshop area. A third-car garage addition can be a fantastic way to boost your home’s functionality and value.

Deciding on Your Dream Garage

There’s more to consider than just square footage when it comes to building your dream third-car garage. Here are some key factors to keep in mind:

  • Matching Your Home’s Style: Whether your house is a charming craftsman bungalow or a sleek mid-century modern, ensure the new garage seamlessly complements your existing architecture. Brick, siding, and roofing materials should all be cohesive.
  • Functionality First: Think about how you’ll be using the space. Will it strictly be for parking cars, or do you need a designated workshop area? Do you need extra storage? Planning for built-in cabinets, workbenches, or even epoxy flooring can make a huge difference in your day-to-day use.
  • Permits and Regulations: Adding a significant structure like a garage often requires permits from your local municipality. We always check the regulations and secure the necessary permits before construction begins.

Once you’ve finalized the plans, it’s time to break ground! Here’s a simplified breakdown of the construction process:

  1. Foundation and Slab: The groundwork is crucial. Constructing a well-built foundation will ensure a solid base for your garage.
  2. Framing the Walls and Roof: The skeleton of your garage takes shape with wooden or steel beams. Don’t forget proper insulation for temperature control!
  3. Wall Material and Siding: This is where your design choices come to life! Brick, vinyl, or wood siding are all popular options.
  4. Roofing and Doors: Consider matching the roofline, shingles, and existing garage doors of your house for a cohesive look in the planning stage.
  5. Finishing Touches: Electrical wiring, plumbing (if needed for a sink or workshop area), and interior finishing touches like paint and flooring complete your dream garage.

Adding Value and Functionality

A third-car garage addition is a significant investment, but it can significantly enhance your home’s value and functionality. The extra space can be used for parking, storage, a workshop, or even a home gym – the possibilities are endless!
