There are many things you have to take into consideration when planning your garage and/or living space.
How much does it cost to build a detached garage?
There are several factors that must be considered when trying to determine the cost of each Quonset hut building kit. The price varies depending on the model, size, and components.
It’s also important to think about the other aspects of your build. For example, what is the cost of the building’s foundation? How much will it cost to finish the interior of your building? Are you insulating your detached garage? Do you plan on framing the interior with wood? The list goes on!
However, there are still many ways you can save money with a Quonset hut in the long run. Our standard building kits are designed for do-it-yourselfers to save on high construction costs. We make the building process much easier than a traditional building because our arch panels and endwalls are pre-cut and pre-drilled at the factory to their exact specifications.
Are there any design challenges that could change my detached garage plans?
It depends on your needs. For example, building a detached garage with a loft is different than building the average garage. This is because home and living spaces are considered a category two design, which has higher snow and wind requirements.
You also have to factor in collateral loads when designing homes. Simply put, collateral loads are the weight of what is going to hang from the arches such as drywall, sheetrock, etc.
