If you’d like to have some workshop space around your home, you might first think about using your attached garage for this purpose. And, indeed, that is exactly what many homeowners do. By turning the garage into a workshop, you eliminate the need for an additional structure, and you can transform the space quickly and easily in most cases.
But what about the sacrifices that this plan requires? For one thing, you will likely lose the ability to park inside the garage, or at the very least, you’ll wind up needing to park one car outside to make way for the workspace. In addition, you will give up storage space in the garage when setting up your tools, work bench, etc. A workshop in an attached garage can be a good fit in some cases, but there are often many sacrifices to think about before making this move.
By opting for a detached steel workshop, you eliminate many of the downsides associated with using your current garage as a shop. You can still park inside your garage, use it for storage, or whatever else. And, thanks to the affordable nature of steel workshops, you won’t have to spend a large sum of money to make this happen. If you have a spot on your property that is well-suited for the new workshop, you’re ready to go.
