Benefits of Detached Garages
While attached garages tend to be the most common option, detached garages offer several unique benefits that you might want to consider.
A detached garage is not limited in any way by the design constraints of your home. They can be developed to suit your needs. From storage space to workspace and more, a detached garage offers limitless possibilities in terms of adding useable, multi-functional space.
Flexible garage location
Obviously, an attached garage is a permanent fixture of your home. The location availability for an attached garage is limited and it also restricts your ability to use that prime real estate space for anything else other than your garage. A large, attached garage can also overwhelm your home, making it look smaller. Detached garages, however, can be built anywhere on your property, keeping the space closest to your home available for other development options, such as the construction of an outdoor patio.
Best suited option for hobbies or work
Detached garages are the ideal option for those who plan to use the garage for more than vehicle storage. If you would like to utilize your garage as a work or office space, building a detached garage can help to keep your work and home life separate. Detached garages may also be safer, as well, if they are used for work or hobbies such as painting or woodworking. With a detached garage, chemicals and other hazards are kept separate from your home.
Additional and attractive storage space
You could always plop a sea-can in your back yard for storage, but a thoughtfully developed detached garage is far more functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Increased home value
