A garage is something that most people will look for when buying a new house. This part of the home is designed to protect vehicles from the elements of Mother Nature. While so many do have a garage as a must-have for their home, there are still hundreds of homes that don’t offer a parking solution. The good news is, there are still various parking options for homes that don’t already have a garage. 

In today’s blog, the team at Better Built Barns is going to provide you with a few of the solutions that you can take advantage of if you’re looking to add some parking space to your home. Let’s get started.

Detached Garage

The most common option that people looking for garage space will choose is a detached garage. Not only will a detached garage provide you with the storage that you’re looking for, but they are the option that will look the closest to a standard garage. 

Better Built Barns offers a variety of detached garage options for you to choose from so that you can find the one that most closely matches your home and caters to your needs. So, if you’re looking for a detached garage to turn into a workshop, we can help. Need parking space for a couple of vehicles? Not a problem! On top of that, we can color match your home’s exterior. 

The freedom with this particular garage option is, without a doubt, what makes this such a popular parking option.


Another popular option that offers some protection to vehicles that are parked is a carport. This particular type of building will provide you with some protection, definitely more than parking a vehicle without any coverage, but it’s certainly less than a garage would offer. One of the many reasons that people love carports as an addition to a house is that there are various ways that a carport can be used. 

If you love spending a little bit of extra time outdoors, but you’d like to have some shade while doing so, a carport works perfectly. A carport is also a fantastic option for cars that you’re going to be working on over a period of time. At the end of the day, carports offer various opportunities on how you’d like to make the most of the space.

Another factor that so many people love about carports is that they are quick and easy to install. So, if you aren’t extremely concerned with the coverage that you’re getting for your vehicles and you want a quick solution, a carport might be your best option.

Detached Shop

The last option that we’re going to be talking about in today’s blog is a detached shop. A detached shop is not the most common choice that people turn to when looking for a parking solution, but there are plenty of perks to using a detached shop for additional parking. For starters, if you are someone that likes to work on cars or tinker on projects, a detached shop is your one stop shop, literally. 

With a detached shop you can customize it to have a garage door while also having plenty of space to work on projects, organize tools and store overflow from the house. If you are wanting a solution that provides you with both space to park and space to work, this is a fantastic choice. For those that work on cars often, a shop is a great way to provide coverage on your project while also having your tools in close reach — who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?
