Get the Most out of Your Garage Space

Living in Calgary, you know there are 3 reasons it makes sense to build a garage – snow, ice and hail – but have you ever thought of any additional uses you might have for that space.

Macho Mechanic

Whether fixing cars is your profession or merely a hobby, it’s a hard skill to keep on top of without somewhere to work your magic. Calgary garage builders know your detached garage may be where you spend most of your time. Talk to Alliance Renovations about building you a garage that’s equipped with everything you need to tune-up and rev-up your engines. With the proper space, you could even turn your casual hobby into a money maker. You might also want to start charging every time your friends offer your services to random strangers.

Home Away From Home

If you have grown kids that aren’t ready to leave the nest or aging parents that want to be closer to their grandkids, the best option may be to build a garage with an upstairs suite. They could move into the basement but living above ground is always better and the slight detachment from the house doesn’t hurt either. Kill two birds with one stone and talk to Calgary garage builders about building the perfect home for your cars and your kids.

Wood Shop Talk

You’re the kind of guy that’s always covered in sawdust, A.K.A man glitter. Your hands have a knack for creating the beautiful and the practical out of a simple stump of wood. Building a detached garage could serve the dual purpose of keeping your truck safe from hail damage, and housing your very own shop – a place to keep your tools secure and where your wife will never complain about the amount of sawdust everywhere. Alliance garage builders can make room for your table saw, mitre saw, jigsaw, bandsaw, arm saw, cabinet saw and every other kind of saw. Talk to Alliance Renovations’ garage builder specialists about built-in workbenches and storage solutions for all of your toys and tools.

Extra Storage

A detached garage can and should do so much more than protect your vehicles. Perhaps the most practical garage function is extra storage – especially for things you wouldn’t necessarily want in your house. Garage builders are skilled at maximizing the space to meet your needs. Talk to garage specialists with Alliance Renovations about how to best utilize the rafter storage of your new detached garage or built-in shelving options for the walls. Make space work for you, and store your cars and your stuff conveniently out of the way and in from the cold.

Business Buff

If you own your own small business or are on your way to building a booming empire, your garage may be the place to start. Build a detached garage as a place to display, store, and sell your products from or as somewhere to turn your inventive ideas into reality. Join the ranks of people like Steve Jobs and Jeff Bezos with your garage startup and allow Alliance Renovations take your goals to the next level.
