1½ Story Garages in the Triangle

Sometimes, you need more space to store your stuff.  Our 1½ story garages in the Raleigh Triangle area  are perfect when you have limited lot space, but want lots of extra square feet of storage space.  Downstairs, your garage can be a 2-car, 3-car or even a 4-car layout.  Upstairs, in the upper ‘½ story’, you’ll be amazed at the space in our garage.  Call it an ‘upstairs’, call it a ‘loft’ area, or call it your ‘office’.  Any way you look at it, it’s a lot of room, on a perfectly-sized footprint, with all the options to make your garage your own private space.  We can even provide financing, if you need it.

Add different options to your garage such as dormers, skylights, taller floor height, and more.  Call us to discuss your lot size and options, based on local municipal codes.  Planning is easy.  Let us do the hard part and build you new garage.  You see, we call ourselves garagologists – you know, expert Carolina garage builders.

“Many thanks for the awesome job you did building our garage. It has been my husband’s dream for 11 years and you all did a fabulous job! He loves it (and I got to keep my tree…thank you for working around it)…”

“Allen and his crew did a great job. I appreciate the advice and how easily he is to get up with. He guided me through the permit fiasco and kept me calm. It’s definitely worth the savings using Carolina Custom vs a Turn Key builder. You actually learn a thing or two in the process. I appreciate ya’ll’s flexibility in making this a “custom” garage. It looks like it was built when the house was…”
