In many cases, it can be necessary to add a garage to your home if you would like to get involved in larger DIY projects.
More than Just Vehicle Storage
Gone are the days where garage space was seen merely as a vehicle storage facility. Nowadays, many DIY enthusiasts are able to use their garage space in order to complete a variety of projects around the house, including woodwork projects, vehicle restoration projects or even general repairs and maintenance as the need arises. If you have been eager to add a garage to your home, but have been unsure of whether it would be a worthwhile investment or not, you will be pleased to know that it has the potential to increase the value of your home by anywhere between 7.5% and 14.5%.
Adding Value to your Home with DIY
These days, there is no shortage of good ideas doing the rounds when it comes to various DIY storage and construction projects. Provided that sufficient garage space is available and that these projects are completed correctly, they are able
to add substantial value to your home as the years go by. One of the most popular forms of DIY projects that are undertaken today involve the development of creative storage solutions, especially for those living in smaller homes.
Ample Storage Space for DIY Essentials
Many DIY enthusiasts tend to own a sizeable collection of tools, gizmos and gadgets; all of which help them see their projects through to completion. This is just one reason why it would be beneficial to add a garage to your home, as it would ensure that these items can be stored safely while also being easily accessible when required. Peg boards and storage racks can be easily mounted on walls or even on overhead rafters to facilitate a pleasant and convenient working space as well as vehicle storage space. When designing garage space, it is also crucial to ensure that ample lighting is going to be available above work spaces. Skylights can also be an excellent alternative to electric lighting.
If you would like to add a garage to your home, it may be necessary to obtain planning permission prior to starting the construction of it. However, this can vary from region to region and it can also vary according to the type and size of garage required.
