Do I have to be involved?

You can be as involved with the project as you want to be. We encourage you to be involved as ultimately it is your space we are designing, and each client has unique tastes and preferences. You can swing the hammer and help us build, or sit in your house and just watch...it's totally up to you.

Am I able to customize my garage?

Absolutely. Customization is what brings a garage to it's full potential. Maybe you want a few extra windows? Maybe you need to have several extra outlets for a workshop? Maybe you want to have security lights installed? The options are literally endless. We will work with you to fulfill your requirements to customize the garage withing the budget and scope of the project.

What about permits?
