Dreaming of the Perfect Garage?
Americans love cars, making storage of those cars a staple of the American
dream. However, a garage can be much more than an enclosed area for parking a
car. All over, people use space in their garages to keep Crossfit gym equipment,
overhead attic storage, a workshop, or even a second floor apartment.

You will need to know how much usable space you have, what features you wish
to incorporate, and the kinds of costs that work within your budget. The
purchase of a Horizon Structures prefab garage provides an elegant
aestheticâ€"both exterior and interior, multi-functional space, and a

Structures 10' x 20' single car garage is under $3,500. And that comes with an

to help you balance the types of features you need with the price you can
Building a Garage With Style
Our detached garage plans allow for many visual aesthetics. Your garage
doesn't just have to be a boring building. With looks that range from a
barn-style to a carriage house to the classic A-frame, there will a look that
matches the elegance of your property. Even our basic prefab kits can be
upgraded with our wide variety of siding and door options.
Wood, Vinyl, or Metal: Garage Buildings and Siding
We offer a wide variety of siding options. Vinyl is the default, but you can
get cedar, metal, or even brick or stone. While the different options mean
different exterior aesthetics, the type of siding also affects how often it
needs to be cleaned and durability.
Before You Finalize Your Garage Building Plans
Construction of buildings, even simple prefab packages, usually requires
approval by your municipality. Investigate your area's rules and regulations to
see what kind of guidelines they have. These can inform your plan, ranging from
where on your property you can build and whether you need a cement base.
In addition, a garage will need to have site preparation done. You can hire
us to do site prep if you're within 150 miles of Atglen, PA.
DIY Garage Building Kits: Yay or Nay?
For people who like working with wood, paying for a garage when they can
build one for free might seem like a waste. While some people may want to try
the do-it-yourself route, they run the risk of wasting more than just money.
Building a garage is more than just slapping up four walls with a roof and
You've got to construct not just a truss, but multiple trusses. You've got to
make and shingle the roof, and install functional doors. You'll need at least
one support poleâ€"not to mention a horizontal bar.
And that's just a no-frills garage. That doesn't include any kind of
electricity, or even how to build garage shelves. You may think that a DIY
project will allow you to avoid having to shop for a garage, but is that a fair
trade for the risk you run if you do a shoddy job? Look at the garages we have
for sale; we think you'll find one you like!
