Building a Garage in Boston

Whether you find yourself in need of some extra storage space, or are looking for a safe place to store your car, a new garage addition is a great way to improve your property.

plans to build a garage

Aside from the added value to your property, you will find that a garage can go a long way to make your life easier. Attached garages are particularly great to have during those cold Boston winters when defrosting your car in the frigid mornings can feel like torture.

What You Need
Before the construction on your new garage can begin, you and your contractor will need to go through the due diligence of obtaining the necessary permits. In most cases, you’ll need to apply for a combination of Boston’s short-form, long-form, and erect construction permits. Go here to learn more.

This may sound intimidating but the process is actually fairly simple in Boston. All you need to do is fill out the paperwork, either online or in person. Your permit application will then be placed under zoning review, during which plan examiners will review your application and grant permission for your to build your garage.

Should it be determined that your application does not meet requirements, you can appeal to the Review Board of Appeals.

Will a new garage add to my home’s value?

As one of the first major American cities founded in pre-Revolutionary days, Boston has seen it share of notable history. Along the way, it has also endured some of the most tumultuous weather ever to be encountered in the northeastern United States.

For this reason alone, most homeowners in Boston and the surrounding Suffolk County area are quite enamored of the garages that protect their cars. Some have even gone a step further and expanded their garage for other reasons.

Here are just a few of the more noteworthy ways that they have accomplished this:

Adding an apartment – For whatever reason, the expansion of living space in a Washington D.C. Home is a benefit. It may immediately yield benefits by providing a separate space for anyone from a recent college graduate to a live-in parent. From a more long-term perspective, the built-out garage apartment can reap a significant amount of extra monthly income.

Making a home office space As befits the sixth largest metropolitan area in the country, the Boston metroplex is home to many large public and private companies. As such, office space in the area commands a price premium. Homeowners who are entrepreneurs or otherwise self-employed are well advised to consider the benefits of creating a home office out of their garage instead of paying office rent.

Utilizing outside storage spaceWhen it comes to outdoor activities, there is plenty to do in and around the Boston area. Taking advantage of these opportunities also means finding enough space around the home to store the needed equipment. An outdoor storage space connected to your garage offers the perfect way to accomplish this goal.

Creating a hobby space Whether you are a model train aficionado or an accomplished craftsperson, it is quite nice to have a space specifically dedicated to your hobby. In addition to giving you plenty of place to work, there is no need to clean up after yourself every time you decide to spend a few moments doing what you like best.

Building a Solarium The winters in Boston can be quite destructive to the plants around your home. It often pays to protect them inside a solarium. It takes a little work to move the plants but at least you will not have to start over your gardening efforts when springtime arrives once again.

Make sure you consider the garage characteristics you want:
Use of drywall
Coatings for flooring
Electrical installation
Storage/loft space
Custom height
Window placement
Garage door & Opener
Plumbing Installation

Boston garage construction costs per square foot depend on the size of and dimensions of garage. Common garage builds include: 12×24, 12×20, 16×20, 16×24, 24×24, 20×20, 24×30, 25×25, 28×28, 24×40, 30×30, 40×40, 40×60.

How Much Does it Cost to Build a Garage In Boston MA?

The cost to build a garage on your property in Boston will ultimately depend on a number of different factors such as the size, the materials you choose, and unexpected costs that could pop up. On average you can expect to spend about $70 per square foot to build a 1-2 story garage.

Keep in mind that building an attached garage will allow you to save some money because it will require less materials and labor since you will only be building three walls instead of four.

It will also be cheaper to build a one-story garage versus a two-story. However, this additional cost could easily be offset if you opt to use the second story to build an apartment to rent out for additional monthly income.

Having the additional living space above the garage, either as a rental or as an addition to your home, will serve you well when it becomes time for you to place your home on the market. Therefore, if you can afford to build the second story, it is worth serious consideration.
