Homes do not grow with you. That’s why we have starter homes, family homes, and forever homes. If you think about it, the rooms in your home are basically static – the kitchen is designed for cooking, the living room for entertaining and the bedrooms for resting and regenerating. And while you may re-purpose empty nest bedrooms into craft rooms or man caves, you really haven’t strayed very far from their original purpose.
Now consider the garage – this room often has more square footage than any other in the home and it is the one room where change is not only anticipated, it’s inevitable. In addition to giving you a place to park your car, it must do double duty and serve as your storage unit. As the fabric of your family stretches and contracts through the years, you quickly learn that each of life’s stages comes with its own storage requirements. Your home will be your anchor and the rooms inside will continue to do what they were designed to do. The garage, however, may undergo many transformations in its lifetime with your family. If designed properly, the demands on your garage storage will easily keep up.
