Brisbane Carport and Garage Design

A Carport or Garage is a great addition to any Brisbane home considering the temperamental and often unexpected weather. Offering protection for your vehicle is the primary concern for home owners but there are additional benefits a Carport or Garage can afford if considered early on in the design process; like allowing for extra storage or even considering the space for additional entertaining areas or accommodation, all which can improve livability and potentially add to your properties value.

Think outside the Garage… so to speak

No longer are Carport or Garage designs focused solely on housing cars, many Brisbane home owners are looking to extract more from their available spaces including workshops, storage allocations for equipment or excess furniture, additional play area for the kids or extended roof heights and adjoining carports for housing boats or campervans.

TIP: A great option for the avid entertainer is the addition of bi-fold doors that lead to an outdoor entertaining area; you can maintain the integrity of your car accommodation with the added flexibility of expanding your entertainment space when required.

Connect your carport or garage to your home

Detached Carports and Garages are a cost effective option, however by adjoining to your home you can take advantage of additional space or for the simple comfort of being able to access your home undercover, avoiding bad weather.

Going all out with your Carport or Garage design

We can get creative with your carport or garage design and provide options for building up; although this will increase build costs, the payoff in added living space can be substantial. When considering the foot print of a single or even a double car garage, there is plenty you can do with the second floor space; perfect for a studio or home office, self-contained flat for extended stays or even a media room for the kids. Spaces can be very livable with the right attention given to the accessibility of the upstairs area (internal or external) and insulation requirements to reduce heat and dampen noise.

So if you are sick and tired of parking your car out in the open, looking for more space or planning or buying a new boat and need to expand a Carport or Garage would be perfect.

    Study it, liked it, thank you for it

  • I never thought about adding anything to my carport before. After reading this article however, I want to add a workshop so I can do my painting. And from the pictures, it looks stylish too! Thanks for the great idea!
