Metal Garage Ideas and Solutions

Most people know what a metal garage is. You place your cars there so they are protected from the weather and they remain safe. It can also become a storage room for things that do not fit in your house. These things include holiday decorations, exercise equipment and old children’s toys.

Before you know it the place meant to keep your cars safe turns into straight storage. At first you will start leaving one car outside on a snowy day. Not long after that the Metal Garagesecond car will be banished to the outdoors as well. You will spend a lot of time trying to fit everything into a smaller space so there will be room for your cars again, but you will be unsuccessful. You need to accept the fact that you are just out of room.

There are some options for you to consider.

First, you could just leave your cars outside and accept it. Based on where you live, this may not be the best idea.

You could rent storage space. This could end up costing you a lot of money, sometimes up to $150 per month depending on where you live. Paying “rent” for this type of space could be considered a waste of money.

The best idea would be to build a workshop/garage/storage building on your property somewhere. For a lot of you this will make a lot of sense. You will be able to put your cars back in their home and have all the storage space you could ever need.

Now that we’ve decided what the best option is, let’s look at all the different things you could do. In order to know what size building is best for your property, you should talk to your local municipality. Depending on your yard you may need a 10’x10′ while other people may want a full 30’x40′ building. No matter what size you choose you will need to pick what you can afford as well as what looks good to you.

The Metal Garage Option

You are probably thinking that the only type of building you can put there is the old style wood structure. The times are different now though. Think about metal garage buildings. If you look around your neighborhood you will probably be quite surprised at the number of metal garage constructions around. Most people think of the traditional wood structures but metal buildings have quite a number of advantages.

They are often quick to build and often come as metal garage kits. They can be constructed with the basic tools you would often find in a workshop. They are manufactured to a very high quality and so fit together quite easily. They are also more sturdy and will withstand fire and pest attack a lot better than a wooden structure. If you live in an area prone to strong winds or even hurricanes than a metal structure is probably the best option.

This is not your typical steel, rusty shed. Metal garages look good and you can find many styles that will match any structure that you might already have. If you are a do-it-yourselfer you will be able to construct this building on your own because they are so easy to build. You will just want an assistant to help you out a little bit. I knew a lady who put up a large sized garage with help from only her 12-year-old son. There are, however, advantages to using a builder or contractor to erect the garage. It will often mean a faster build with less costly mistakes. They can also make sure you have the right foundations on which to build the metal garage.
