What size is the garage?

The size of the garage is probably the biggest deciding factor when estimating a timeframe for it to be built. With most garages main purpose being to shelter vehicles, a garage big enough to store 2 vehicles is the most popular size. It is not only the width and length of the garage that should be considered when estimating building times, but the height of the garage too. When choosing the best size garage, it is important to consider the proportions of your garage in relation to your home. If you have a large block and plenty of room, consider building a garage bigger than you need now so it can be utilised for other purposes in the future.
