Rebuild or remove garage
Our house has a detached garage which sits about 10 foot behind and to the side of the house. It is accessed via a shared, gated entry which is 5 foot 10 inches wide. It has a set of double doors to the front, leading to the shared entry which is bounded by the house and a diagonal fence connecting corners of the house and garage. It also has a side door from the garden for access. The survey advised that the garage roof needs to be replaced due to damaged asbestos. The doors and windows are also wood which has been damaged so need replacing. An electrician has advised that complete rewiring is required. Should we rebuild the garage (costing several thousand pounds) or remove it and extend the garden (adding a reasonably sized storage shed)? There is room for 3 cars on our drive but the garage may add value to the house. If we remove the garage, we will ask our neighbors about creating an l-shaped fence for more space, possibly installing storage units along the side of the house.
