Benefits of a Detached Workshop Garage

February 12, 2023
Published by

As you start to do your internet searches for a home builder near me, include Garrette Custom Homes in your list of builders, especially if you’re considering adding a detached workshop to your new home. We offer a range of floor plans, with attached and detached workshop and garage options to help you create your ideal home.

If you haven’t thought about adding a detached workshop, it’s worth considering, especially if you have hobbies that require extra space and storage. Our 24×30 foot shop is perfect for your project car, boat, woodworking shop, garage band, or just your lawn mower, kids’ sports equipment, and seasonal decorations. Rather than filling your garage with storage items, give yourself more room!

Having a dedicated detached workshop lets you stay more organized. Rather than trying to fit everything and your cars into your garage, you can use this space to have everything organized, within reach, and in its proper place. You have room to work, and your tools ready to go, which gives you more time to spend on your personal project or hobby. Plus, depending on the tools needed, it can provide more security, letting you keep young children out unless supervised.

Many people have realized the need for a dedicated home office, rather than using the kitchen table, because they don’t have to clean up or move stuff all of the time. If you’re working on a project in a regular garage, you may need to move stuff out of the way for a car. Having a dedicated workshop lets you leave your work as it is in between sessions. It also means you can pick it up whenever the mood strikes. This is important, because having hobbies can help release stress and make life more enjoyable.

Of course, you don’t have to use the space just for hobbies. It can be a fun place to entertain, especially if you’re friends with lots of neighbors. This detached garage can be a great place to gather for card or board games, watching sports, or hosting neighborhood parties. Plus, it causes less disturbance if you have younger children who may need to go to sleep earlier.

We do offer floor plans with attached workshops that are an extension of the garage, but detached spaces reduce any noise disturbance to those in the home and ultimately give you more space and flexibility. So when you enter home builder near me into your search engine, make sure Garrette Custom Homes is one of the builders you ultimately contact. With our range of homes and the options that help you create a home that fits your lifestyle, we can help you create your perfect home. Contact us today to learn more!
