Attached Vs. Detached?
Any homeowner seriously considering a custom garage construction must make an initial obvious choice: attached garage or detached garage? Each type has its own advantages and drawbacks. Attached garages are cheaper, since utility lines attach directly to the established house through the shared wall. Attached garages feel more like additional rooms in the main house, whereas detached garages can sometimes feel like their own home completely. Choosing a detached version will provide several more design choices over the alternative, including options to maximize open work space, privacy and noise reduction.
Depending on lot size and orientation, one design may make more sense than the other. On smaller lots, detached garages prevail. But they may be less convenient if their main purpose is to simply store cars. Imagine having to slog through snow in the middle of winter just to get to your car every morning. But for those wanting to use the garage as a work space for power tools, leaving plenty of distance between the garage and the main house’s living quarters is a good idea.
Detached garages are better for home security, too. After all, if a burglar breaks into your detached garage, all they can harm is your stuff. But if the garage is attached to the house, then criminals are just one door away from being a threat to your family.
