Having a garage built on your property can benefit you in a variety of ways — extra room, additional storage, and a boost to your home’s resale value are just a few. When building a garage, you must decide between attached and detached structures. While the former is popular because of its accessibility to the house, a detached garage has its fair share of benefits. The highly trusted professionals at Murphy Sheds, serving South Dakota and Wyoming, can provide valuable insight into which type of garage is best for you.
Here are some of the benefits of adding a detached garage:
- Location Flexibility: A detached garage can be built on lots of various sizes and shapes, and you’ll have more location options because it doesn't have to be connected to the house. If your best open land is located behind the house, a detached garage easily can be placed in the backyard.
- Cost and Convenience: Adding on to an existing home is expensive and disrupting. Part of the house needs to be removed, there are fire wall issues, and your life can be disrupted for several months. Typical detached garages cost less than half than attaching it to the house.
- Expansion Options: Unlike an attached garage, a detached garage has its own lot you can utilize. If you wish to expand the garage to make room for a small studio or office, you will have more room to do so.
