Developing a Garage Addition Building Plan and Estimating Garage Addition Costs


The decision to add on a garage addition to a home is one of the best home improvement projects a homeowner can make. A garage addition provides great utility and can significantly increase the value of a home. Prior to actually breaking ground, however, a garage addition plan and garage addition costs estimates should be developed.

A garage addition plan starts with making initial sketches of the garage addition concept and evaluating how it will tie in with the existing home structure. Though most homeowners prefer a large garage, it is very important during this phase to consider proportions between the existing home and the new garage addition. To aesthetically look appealing from the road the garage addition length should not exceed two-thirds the length of the existing home. Otherwise the garage addition could overwhelm the existing home structure. The depth or width of the garage addition is less critical from an aesthetic standpoint, as it is usually less visible from the road.

Once the initial sketches have been completed, detailed garage addition building plans should be generated. Depending on the complexity of the garage addition either the homeowner or an architect can develop the actual garage addition building plans. In either case, the plans will need to include scaled drawings with dimensions, and cross-sectional construction views with constructional materials specified. The cross-sectional views should include from the concrete footings all the way to the peak of the roof. Each new transition from the footings up should be carefully drawn. Examples include: the footing/foundation transition, the foundation/sill plate transition, and the wall/roof rafter transition. The plans should also include a comprehensive bill of materials for the project. In addition, all property lines and appropriate setbacks should be clearly shown in the drawings.

Estimating the garage addition costs depends on who is building the addition. If the homeowner plans on acting as his or her own general contractor and performing some of the work (e.g. the framing) then costs will need to be calculated starting with the bill of materials generated during the planning phase. With a comprehensive bill of materials a homeowner can provide much of the list to any home improvement store where they can fill out the pricing information for the specific items for the project. For specialty items such as garage doors, garage door openers, and in some cases lighting and plumbing fixtures (if required for the garage addition) the homeowner may need to contact specialty stores for pricing. The subcontractors may also be able to provide some unit pricing (e.g. garage doors).

If the homeowner is acting as his or her own general contractor and will require subcontractors, then it is important that they identify early the subcontractors and review with them the plans and development schedule. Each subcontractor should provide a firm fixed estimate for the particular job based on the plans and bill of materials. In addition their bid should also include start/complete dates for the particular job.

With garage addition plans and costs estimates in place the homeowner can then proceed with pulling permits and developing a fairly accurate building schedule.

Once permits have been approved, construction of the garage addition can begin. It is important to note, however, that even with the best plans in place things happen and schedules slip. To mitigate schedule slips a homeowner acting as his or her own general contractor should factor in some buffer to the schedule and always be looking ahead several weeks during the entire project. They should regularly check with suppliers to ensure building material will arrive when required and should occasionally check with subcontractors to ensure that their schedules are still in line with your garage addition project.

With these simple planning, budgeting and scheduling issues addressed prior to the start of the project, building a garage addition can be a positive experience both pre and post construction phase.

For more information on building a garage addition see the Garage Addition Bid Sheet from HomeAdditionPlus.com. The Garage Addition Bid Sheet includes an extensive questionnaire (Request for Quote) that a homeowner can provide to prospective general contractors and subcontractors for bidding the garage addition. In addition, the Garage Addition Bid sheet also includes estimated costs and time intervals for constructing a garage addition as well as a list of key home material manufacturers. Finally, the Garage Addition Bid Sheet includes an extensive set of helpful tips and advice on making sure the garage addition is built properly and on time and budget.

Pergolas are an outdoor structure which can serve a few purposes. First , they can help create shade on sunny days. So , when you choose to enjoy your patio during a hot day , you will not roast in the sun. Secondly , pergolas become a beautiful décor piece for your garden. They add flavor standing alone , and you can choose to decorate them with fairy lights. Or you can have ivy , roses or other plants climb up on it. Let's take a look at what else to consider when picking out the perfect garden pergola.

patio  pergola

Dimensions: Each pergola has different dimensions , which is why we recommend measuring the space you have to work with. Small pergolas would be perfect above your barbecue area , but a pergola 3 or 4 metres in width is best in a garden with space.

All pergolas are different. You can find ones with different bases which look like trellises or ones held up by standard posts. You also could find ones with built in benches or seats. In addition to the foundation , the roof style can change. You can choose between a pergola with a flat roof or one where the roof is arched. Remember though , the roof does not completely block the sun , there are gaps in between the beams for sun to shine in. An arched pergola is another beautiful look.

Wayfair.co.uk loves everything home and décor , and we want to make sure that you do too. That's why we carry a zillion different Pergolas for sale online. With options it's easy to narrow down your online shopping to find Pergolas that are right for your home.

    Was looking for a very large box for storage of cushions from my corner unit. This is only one I found that would fit them all with generous internal dimensions. Arrived promptly, only criticism is a couple of pieces had tabs broken off but still structurally sound Easy to fit together, the piston openers need to be treated with respect ! Only really needed second person to hold lid in place when screwing place. Very sturdy when built and very pleased with purchase

    These chairs are not properly finished. First day of use a cold drink left a ring (water mark) on the armrest. So I went out and purchased a water sealer and proceeded to properly waterproof the chairs (4). $25 and 3 hours later they're in good shape. Also, they say they are rated to 300 pounds but I sure wouldn't test that out if I were you. They could be built out of more solid wood for the price. Lastly, the assembly instructions were so so. Once you get one done the rest go pretty fast though. Overall, 2/5 and that's based on the sale price. At "full price" I wouldn't bother. They look really nice but they require upkeep right from the get go and I'm not convinced they won't break in 5 years after regular use.

    A decent set for the money. I found it easy to assemble. Nice size chairs although the backs could be higher and more supporting which leads to my main disappointment. The cushions have a very cheap feel, are very lightweight which means a slight gust of wind and your picking them up from their scattered positions on the garden. Also the material has a polyester feel so can move a little. (Going to look at some Velcro to solve last 2 problems). Having said that the set is comfy to sit on, although I feel that abit better quality cushions would have made a real difference and make it really comfortable, for that I score it 4 stars. Like I said a good value set, strong bases, comfy ish and looks the part. Would have been 5 star if it wasn’t for the cushions.

    A lovely piece of furniture that fits very well in our hall. Easy to assemble (only needed a second person to assist with turning the unit around). Would have been slightly better had there been pilot holes in the main unit for fitting the back panel. Knocked one star off as the two moveable shelves (in the two far end sections) don’t fit exactly. There is a slight gap on either side when in place.

    After putting up with too low chairs for years, these are the perfect height for our breakfast table. They are very comfortable as well!

    Very nice set which fits perfectly in my balcony. I am not sure how sturdy or durable it is. Since it is an outdoor piece of furniture, only time and weather will tell if it lasts long enough. The seats of the sofa are nice but if you are looking for something to lounge in, these might not be the best for you but if you have limited space this is a good purchase. While the sofa is good this is the first time I have been let down by a www.boisecloggers.com supplier in terms of delivery. The item was due to come in on a Monday but did not arrive and there was no communication neither from DHL nor www.boisecloggers.com - therefore my whole day was wasted sitting at home waiting for the delivery. When I called www.boisecloggers.com in the evening they apologised and confirmed it is definitely coming on Tuesday. Same story was repeated and I again called. Then they confirmed it would come on Wednesday but it still did not arrive, at last the set was delivered after 5 days delay on Friday. One last thing when you unpack do check that all nuts and parts are there. I was supposed to get 12 nuts which go under the furniture for stability, I only got 5 of them.

    Cute, but very, very small. I had a hard time even finding succulents small enough to put in these. Like the nice touch of matching rose gold wall screws
