Visitors: 1,363

It happens to just about everybody. No matter how hard you try, you still can't seem to stop accumulating stuff. It's falling out of your closets. Just last week, it tried to make a break for freedom from the basement. That was one uprising you hope never happens again. The garage used to be a place to leave the cars and do a little bit of tinkering here and there. The here and there is now full of the boxes and bags, no more room for here and there. The problem is pretty clear to anyone with eyeballs. You need to think about some ideas for a garage loft. Of course, having a garage sale would helpful as well, but this is all about baby steps.

In terms of ideas for a garage loft the best one you can come up with is to start the process of having one built. The good news is if you don't have to change the appearance of the outside of the garage, you probably won't need a building permit. Your contractor can let you know for sure though. If you need to raise the roof, so to speak, on the garage a permit is almost definitely going to be needed.

You might be wondering why you need a contractor just to build a platform in your garage. The answer is pretty simple. One, a professional contractor will have much better ideas for a garage loft and he or she will actually have some knowledge of how to build it successfully and cost efficiently. Contractors are paid to do this kind of thing and it's their job. That means they won't be trying to fit your garage into their work schedule and extra activities like you would be. We could keep going with reasons, but you get the idea.

With the right contractor the only ideas for a garage loft you need to come up with is which bunch of stuff you are going to move up there first.
