What to Consider When Comparing Attached vs. Detached Garages

There are many things to take into consideration when you are trying to decide whether you should go for an attached or detached garage. Of course there are pros and cons to each, but there are other things to consider as well.

Here is a brief list of questions to ask yourself when trying to make up your mind:
