How A Garage Workshop Can Get You Extra Space

Garages, in their modern iteration, have been around since the 1920s. At that point, most garages were converted from carriage houses to car storage and maintenance areas. Nowadays, a garage is an almost necessary component to any house. In fact, according to Realtor Magazine, a garage can increase a home’s value by up to 30,000 dollars.  The best part about a garage is its versatility. You can use your garage for car storage, general storage, band practice, home office, or, our personal favorite, a home garage workshop.  If you are thinking of building a garage addition or workshop, contact Dupont Construction and Realty for a free estimate.
