What Things Will You Need to Consider for a Garage Addition?

Sep. 26th 2016

In our last blog we talked about building a shop or garage. In this blog we want to get a little more specific and talk about adding a garage onto your current garage or home. There are several things to consider when doing a garage addition, including:

  • The size of your addition
  • The site of your addition
  • How your new garage will be accessed
  • How the new addition fits with the current structure and layout

The first thing you will need to do is learn about any zoning and code regulations and restrictions. In order to add on to your home or garage you will need to obtain the proper building permits form the city and/or county. That means you will have to decide whether or not you want your addition attached or detached. The codes and regulations will be different for both. Where you are placing your structure will also play a key role in the planning.

The size of your structure will affect many other factors, including the types of permits you have to obtain, the codes you’ll have to follow and the price you will have to pay. You also have to determine how you will access your new structure. Will there be man doors or large swinging doors, or both? Lastly, where you build the garage addition in relation to your house is also important. Not just because of codes and regulations, but also for looks. Make sure you consider how well your addition will blend with your current structure.

These are all important items to consider when doing a garage addition. Contacting Direct Finish Construction to get the job done right is the right call. Click here or call 360-690-5616 for an experienced Vancouver WA genera contractor or concrete contractor.

Add a Shop for More Work Space at Your Vancouver WA Home

Sep. 12th 2016

Men love their “man-caves” but before there were man-caves men had shops or garages. There are all kinds of shops or garages and they have all kinds of uses. Some are used to store extra vehicles, like boats, cars or motorcycles, while other shops are used for tools and actual working. It doesn’t really matter what you want to use our shop or garage for, the fact is they are very useful and handy to have.

So if you’re in the market for a new shop or an extra garage, then Direct Finish Construction can help. We’ve built shops of all different shapes and sizes and for many different purposes. One of the most popular kinds of these structures is a pole barn. Pole barns are typically much easier and quicker to build than a normal garage or shop and they can be less expensive as well.

However, building a shop, garage or barn is not something that just anyone can do. It takes experience and skill, as well the right tools and knowledge. These are big jobs and you probably shouldn’t try to do it yourself. The building process is very detailed from start to finish and you need to make sure you follow the process precisely. From choosing your site, to selecting and pouring your foundation and choosing the size of your structure, there is a lot to consider when building a shop or a garage.
