Questions to Ask Yourself
Here are a few questions that you should be asking yourself before ordering your prebuilt garage:
- What do I want to do with my garage?
Your answer to this question will determine the size of your garage, amount and location of doors and windows, and other important details. Will you be using your garage as a workshop or primarily for storage?
- How much stuff do I need to store in my garage?
It might be helpful to take the items that you plan to store in your garage and lay them out in your lawn to get an idea how big your garage will need to be. Be sure to leave enough room for walking. Go a little bigger than you’ll think you’ll need because you’ll never regret having plenty of room.
- Will my township allow me to install a garage on my property? Are there any height or setback restrictions?
This is perhaps the most important step because you don’t want to place your order only to discover that you won’t be able to get the building you want.
