How much does it cost to build a simple single car garage attached to a house? How about a double sized garage?

It is hard to say exact price, because depends on accessibility, siding material, height of structure and ...

But starts around $50k.

if we can get permit for double garage, I would go with double, because first , it doesn't mean that costs will be doubled; second , it adds up to value of your house, third, you have more space .

Thank you

A very basic way to estimate the cost of building a detached garage is to simply apply a typical average per square foot construction of $80 - $100. If there are complications or you prefer top quality materials and components the price can easily will go up. This can serve as a very rough basis.

Everything will depend on the materials prices and labor expenses. Installation of cement siding and a slate roof might double the cost in comparison with vinyl siding and an asphalt shingles roof. If it is an attached garage and house design will require matching in style, costs of construction will increase as well.

1-car garage is approximately 12 ft. wide and 22 ft. deep. 14 x 22 allows additional space for longer vehicles and 16 x 24 is a large single car garage which will accommodate a longer truck. When considering your 1-car design, go bigger when possible

The minimum recommended size of a 2-car garage is approximately 20 ft. wide and 20 ft. deep. When considering your 2-car garage design wishes, go bigger when possible. 22 X 22 is comfortable and 24 X 24 gives you some breathing space.
