There is a wealth of resources available to you, if and when you decide to build your own garage, to customize a garage that is already in your possession, or to add an extra garage or storage building to your land. The following is a small sampling of the various avenues that you may consider, when choosing how to proceed when it comes to designing your new garage.
A. Pre-Designed Garage Plans: There are a wide variety of online companies which market plans for building your own garage. Most of them offer instant downloads of plans for backyard structures, garages and sheds, which include detailed lists for materials in addition to complete blue-prints. Sites like Homeplans.com, which offers over seventy different blue-prints for easy outdoor projects, are easy to come by and offer a wide array of easy to customize garage and backyard structure plans.
B. Design Your Own: There are many different software programs out there which will allow you to create your own garage plan blue-print. A notable option is Plan3D which is a web application which allows you to create a new home, garage, barn or shed and then look at it in 3D to see roughly how it will look in real life, on your property. Plan3D is an inexpensive option, which is completely available online and offers a 3-dimensional virtual walk through any garage that you design using the application.
C. Garage Building Kits: These kits are especially popular among steel garages, which are detached buildings built from galvanized steel. The most popular version of the steel garage building resembles an airline hangar, as it is a large arch where both sides and the roof are comprised of the same curved arch. The kits are designed in such a way that practically anyone can build their own garage, but there are also many companies who will come to your home and construct the garage system for you. Steel garages come along with many different potential options, including different styles and colors, and a wide variety of size and shape options. Do it yourself steel garage kits are perfect when you’re looking for an extra storage space on your land, or a detached garage. They are easy to both assemble and disassemble, which makes them portable to a degree as well.
