About Me
I Am My Father's Daughter

Growing up in a house full of girls, I unofficially took on the role as my father's only son. So when the time came to fix a leaky sink or change the oil in the family car, it was me that stood by my father's side. Thanks to him and everything he taught me, I am now able to take care of myself and my children in a way that not everyone can. I have tried over the years to engage my own daughter in the same way my father engaged me, but she's currently more interested in playing with dolls than fixing potholes. After my father passed away last year, I vowed to find a way to pass on everything he taught me, this blog is my way of keeping that promise. I truly hope that you learn as much as I have over the years.

Choosing The Design Of Your Amish Garage For The Needs Of Your Home

Beatrice Reid

When you need to have more storage space and parking for your car, a detached garage is an ideal solution. With Amish-built garages, there are a lot of options for the design. They can have more space with double doors or finished areas with a two-story design. The following information will help you choose the right Amish garage for the needs of your home:

The Space and Size of the Garage

Before choosing the Amish garage design, you will need to decide on the size of the building. Options for the space and size of your garage include:

  • Small single-door garage and shed designs
  • Double-door designs with more parking space
  • Larger designs with parking and workshop space
  • Two-story designs to add finished space to the garage

Two-story designs can give you options for finished space above the garage for home office or other uses. On the garage level, you may want to add features like a small bathroom.

Garage Doors and Additional Openings

There are also options for the garage doors with your Amish garage, as well as other openings. Options for the doors and openings in your garage include:

  • Custom-built wood garage doors
  • Side entrance doors for shops and additional spaces
  • Premium windows for natural light and finished spaces

Adding windows to workshops and other spaces will give your new garage more natural lighting. This will make the new garage an efficient addition to your property.

Garage Designs for Mechanical Installations

Another benefit of Amish garages is that they can be prefabricated with designs that are ready for mechanical installations. Some of the options to have the garage designed for mechanical installations include:

  • Precut holes for plumbing and wiring
  • Structural design for HVAC installations
  • Utility room areas for mechanical installations

These designs make it easier to install mechanical systems like wiring and plumbing in your garage. They can also be prepared for future mechanical installations that you might want to plan.

Adding Custom Features to Amish Garage Designs

There may also be custom features that you want to add to the design of your garage. These can be features for equipment in a shop area or an office. You will want to discuss the custom features you need for your project with the Amish garage service that installs the building.

The design of your new garage can give your home more space and features you really need. Contact an Amish garage construction service for more information.
