Building a garage? Follow this simple guide...

Whenever people plant to construct a certain structure, one thing that should be included in their planning  is the cost of construction. Building a garage is something simple but would cost you a lot if you have not properly planned how to go about its construction. There are lots of costs that have to be considered , being a civil engineer by profession I know how important it is to follow the guide below :

Plan of the garage - Having a plan can help you  calculate and  determine a rough estimate of the total cost of the structure. It is by having the plan that  will be the basis of the construction.

Material to be used - You have the option of building a wooden, metal or stone garage. Using wood  or metal is much cheaper than using stone. Material to be used depends on  the usage of the structure ( permanent, semi-permanent or temporary). Wood is  recommended if the garage will be moved from place to place. But , if the garage is a permanent then it would be advisable to use stone.

Size and feature  - A big garage will surely  cost you more do it is essential to  decide the dimension which  is just enough for  your needs. Features like doors and windows will also be considered.
