One of the most common uses for prefab steel buildings is as a garage, which is perfect for these kinds of structures. That being said, there are going to be a handful of considerations you’ll need to make before you can get started on this project. Just like any construction project, getting these questions out of the way early on will help keep the project on track, on budget and on vision so you can end up with the perfect building. Here are just a few of the considerations you’re going to have to make before you can start your perfect prefab garage building!
How Many Cars Are You Storing?
Of course, the main purpose of a garage is as car storage but you’ll have to think about how many you have to keep stored away. Most people have 1 or 2 cars that they need to keep in their garage, while others may have a lot more. The amount of cars you need to have in storage will determine the size of your structure, so it will be important to have a good idea of how much space these vehicles will take up as well. Also, keep in mind your vehicles might all be different sizes, and the space needed to house two smart cars will be much less than what you would need to store two trucks or SUVs.
Will You Be Customizing Later?
Prefab steel might be the perfect garage material, but there are always going to be ways that you can make these structures so much more. Think about the additions and extra features you might want to add to your garage to ensure that it’s up to your standards and then some! Think about heating and cooling features, window add-ons and skylights, custom roofing, drainage systems, custom doors, custom facing like wood logs or brick and so much more. These are all things that will help you create the structure of your dreams.
Do You Need Other Storage Space?
Beyond cars, you might want to keep other things in your garage as well. Tools and equipment, items you don’t use very often, work items and so much more can all be stored under the same garage roof, but you’ll have to think about what those things might be so you can ensure the right amount of space is there to do so. You’ll also have to think about the types of possible customizations that could make it much easier to store these items so you can add in things like built-in shelving if need be.
Are You Going To Need A Workspace?
In a garage, storing your cars and other items will be a given but it will also be important to consider whether or not you’re going to need a place to do work. Whether it’s working on the vehicles in storage, other hardware items or just a general office space, you should consider if you want extra room in order to do this kind of work in your garage space as well. You may also need an office space that’s slightly separate from the rest of the garage. It’s important to remember that prefab steel buildings don’t always have to be one large open space; they can also be customized into more compartmentalized areas depending on what you need and what works best for the structure itself.
