8 Ways to Customize a Post-Frame Garage

agricultural building in Morgantown

Post frame garages are a great way to add additional storage, enclosed parking, and workspace to your home or business. The best thing about post frame garages in Pittsburgh is the flexibility of post frame construction. If you choose to build your garage with a professional Pittsburgh post frame builder like MQS Structures, there is no end to the possibilities. Here are just a few:

#1 – Doors and Windows

Depending on how you plan on using your post frame garage, you may need multiple doors or custom doors. Choose from various styles of sliding doors, garage bay doors, and entry doors. You can also choose from single-hung, double-hung, or casement windows in a variety of styles.

#2 – Size

When you hear the term “garage,” you may think of a standard residential garage designed for one, two, or three cars. The advantage of working with a custom post frame builder in Pittsburgh is that you can build your garage any size you want.

#3 – Floor

If you plan on using your garage to work on your daily driver or your hot-rod, you may want to install polished concrete floors, polyurethane, or even epoxy flooring. If you are on a tight budget, you may want a simple gravel floor. Other options include vinyl flooring, tile, or even stone.

#4 – Add an Apartment

If you need extra living space and extra storage space, you can always add an apartment to your post-frame garage. The apartment can be built on a second floor or right next to the garage space, depending on your property size. The choice is yours.

#5 – Add a Covered Outdoor Living Space

You can also take advantage of the opportunity and add a patio area to your post frame garage. Patios are great for a built-in barbecue, hot tub, mini-bar, or anything else you can dream up.

#6 – Add a Vehicle Lift

Install a vehicle lift in your new garage if you love working on your own cars or a project car. A vehicle lift is one of the best ways to take your car hobby to the next level. Depending on the style of lift you choose to install (especially if you want to install an in-ground lift), it is best to tell your Pittsburgh pole barn builder before construction begins. Vehicle lifts often have specific requirements for ceiling height and the foundation.

#7 – Choose a Custom Exterior or Interior

At MQS Structures, we offer a wide variety of exterior colors, trim, wainscotting, overhangs, dormers, gutters, and siding materials. You can also build out the interior of your garage with steel, wood, sheetrock, or other materials.

#8 – Add a Wash Area, Kitchen, Bathroom, or Shower

If you plan on using part of your post frame garage as a work area, it’s a great idea to add a bathroom and sink. If you plan on using part of the garage to have friends over and watch the game, you may want to add a small (or big) kitchen. These additions are more expensive and complicated after construction has been completed, so think it through before construction starts.
