What is the True Cost of a Realistic Dream Garage?
In an ideal world, everyone looking for garage space would be able to purchase their own warehouse. In this warehouse, there would not only be an ample amount of floor space. There would also be tools galore and all of the accessories that one could ever want or need. Lighting, toolboxes, and high-end finishes would fill the space.
Unfortunately, this dream world doesn't always exist for everybody. Instead, in most cases, sacrifices need to be made. However, that isn't to say that you have to live your life without a garage at all.
Instead, there are certainly situations where we can make do with what we have. Perhaps, instead of going all out, there's a realistic dream garage that's a sort of middle ground between nothing and the best of the best.
It seems like the one thing that holds folks back from chasing after their dream garage is a lack of information. Until someone has really dug into the process, it can be a little bit overwhelming. At the end of the day, there is an awful lot to consider.
From foundation to structure and even electrical, where do you even begin?
This time, we've enlisted a little bit of help. In this video from BigKleib34 on YouTube, we're able to tackle some of the basics. From what one might want to have done by a contractor to what's simple enough to do with limited experience, this one touches on the building blocks of putting together a shop.
When all is said and done with this particular structure, it amounts to about a $20,000 to build. That certainly isn't cheap by most accounts. However, it also isn't so far out of the realm of possibility that it begins to get disheartening.
By following along with the video below, we get the entire rundown of how someone might want to go about putting together a garage like this. At 900 square feet, the space seems to be rather serviceable as a realistic dream garage!
Even if someone doesn't follow this guide, step-by-step, it could still serve to point out a couple of considerations that those looking to build may want to mull over.
