If you’re in the situation where you need more garage storage space that you just don’t have, a cheap yet high quality solution is to purchase a prefabricated garage kit that will add space at a reasonable price. Garage kits can come pre-built, so you don’t have to actually do any work in getting it installed, and they are very convenient to use too.
If you’ve never heard of a garage kit before, they are usually made of metal and are known for being very quick to get set up. The walls are thin, so they won’t stay warm in the winter or cool in the summer, but they’ll keep rain and snow off of your car, and keep the wind away from it too. So that’s a great way to think about garage kits- easy protection from the worst weather.
The only thing you’ll really need to worry about is having a solid foundation to put the kit on top of – though your contractor should be able to get that laid for you too. If it’s a smaller unit, more like a roof unit, then you may be able to install it in your driveway or on existing concrete you already have down, but more likely than not you’ll need to have something additional put down.
The larger units, with secure doors and windows, are good for general storage as well as car storage. My garage is where I keep all my gardening equipment, including a wall rack for larger tools and a wicker storage trunk for the smaller equipment, bags, and so on. It’s convenient since it’s also the closet place to my yard I have to store it.
Prefab garage kits are easy to locate anywhere on your property, and are simple to use. They’re good for any kind of storage, and they’re the cheapest way to add it. So what are you waiting for?
