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.

    Love, love, love this bench. It's exactly what I wanted for the courtyard. The care instructions recommended using wax to maintain the wood and suggested not to let bird droppings or leaves sit on it for any length of time which may be more fuss than some people are willing to give their outdoor furniture but wooden outdoor furniture requires extra TLC. If that's too much then let me say it would look beautiful indoors as well.

    Great chairs but hardish to assemble - I had to use my own screws to make it work . The holes and the bolt and connector were not well engineered enough to assemble it .

    I bought the dark grey and love it. Just what i was after. Good quality, reasonably weighty with 2 drainage holes. Shame they have now sold out as I would like to buy 1 other.

    The flat-pack arrived in excellent condition and the instructions were easy to follow . Could not resist starting assembly straight away, all parts were perfectly machined and went together accurately and within an hour or so of arrival I was sitting on the cushioned bench with shoes and boots neatly stored beneath.Thank you www.boisecloggers.com and the manufactures you sourced so well.

    Nice swing. Fairly easy to assemble but definitely easier with two people. Came with all tools needed to assemble. Seat and back are preassembled as two separate pieces and the rest is unassembled. MAJOR ASSEMBLY HINT... when assembling the A-frame, there are three sizes of screws all VERY close in size. Make sure to sort first by size. Took two of us about an hour to assemble, trying to figure out the images in the instructions. Don't really like how the chain lays against the seat and how thin the A-frame legs are, but for the price I can't complain. My old cedar swing lasted 25 years. Don't think this will last more than 10. We shall see.

    I really like this bench; it is the perfect height and quite sturdy and easy to assemble. I gave 4* instead of 5 because I think some of the screws were too big or the wood was too thin as it split in places when putting it together. The bench is white and it would have been nice the seat cushion was a contrasting colour in a material finish instead of the fake leather.

    The first bench we were sent was faulty but following a phone call to a very helpful lady in www.boisecloggers.com, the faulty item was collected the next morning and a new one delivered that afternoon. Excellent service and the bench was easy to assemble, sturdy and looks great in the garden. Thank you

    I love the look of these. In the picture they appear to have a gloss on them which I liked for rain, or easy wipe off, but they don't actually have that sheen. There are a few spots on them that did not get stained well, so the color is not completely even. They are very comfortable, but creak quite a bit when sitting and getting up. I don't believe they are really heavy duty like they look. It is nice to have the large arms on them to put a plate or drink.

    This item is the perfect size for the space it was purchased for (due to the very handy sort by dimension feature on the website - i was able to choose something that was the perfect fit). Product only required 1 screwdriver to construct (not provided) and looks great once constructed. The instructions were easy to follow, and aside from some creaking noises, seems structurally sound. The bench also comes with rubber tabs for the underside so that it doesn't scratch your floor, which was also a pleasant surprise.
