Building a residential shed for storage means making it big enough to store all your various tools.

How big should your new shed be?

Investing in a new custom designed garage can be a liberating experience, especially if you've been wanting more storage space around your home. Creating a space specifically dedicated to holding the various items that just don't fit with a living area can be a great way to solve an often frustrating problem. 

However, one thing to keep in mind is the space available at your home and – more specifically – the size of your garage. There are a number of different things to consider before any major decisions are made.

Many people will severely under or overestimate how big the garage needs to be for their functions. Putting in thought about the use of the space with relation to the other objects in your lot – including your house and garden – will help give you a decent grasp on just how big the garage needs to be. 

Furthermore, are you planning on parking vehicles in the garage? if so, how many? Do you still want to have space for storage of other things as well, or will you simply use the garage to protect your cars during the winter? 

Gardeners will definitely want to give some consideration to storing their tools in an easily accessible location. Depending on the main use of the garage, the size should be one of the main focuses of the development. 

It's about getting a happy median. If your garage is too small, it will be more of an inconvenience than not having one, especially if you're unable to use the storage as intended. However, settling on a garage that's too big will be a waste of space. 

Getting in contact with an expert to discuss the options available to you and finding the best possible garage design for your home is an essential part of building a satisfactory garage for you and your home.
