Thinking about expanding your living space by adding a garage? Maybe you’re tired of walking through the rain or chilly wind to get inside and need a place to put the car. Or maybe you’re searching for an add-on that gives you space to store your tools, riding lawnmower, or other items. No matter what your motivation is, a garage is a great way to go when it comes to home improvement. We love garage additions for their practicality, and if you’re thinking about enlarging your space, adding a garage can be one the most affordable expansions to build.

Since over 60% of homes in the U.S. have a garage or carport, you’ll be in good company, and adding a garage can help drive up the resale value of your home, too. With a garage addition, you can create a space that’s both functional and aesthetically pleasing while keeping the specific needs of your family in mind. Maybe you’d like your garage to become an at-home gardening center or a workshop where you can craft furniture or take care of projects. Or maybe you’d just like a place to help you manage extra storage.

Whether you’re thinking of an attached or detached space, our team of Terre Haute home improvement experts put together a collection of garage looks we love to help give you a few ideas for your own garage home expansion project.
