Depends also on if you plan to live there long term.

You might want to look at building it as a “detached 2 car garage” and then you have that space as a selling feature if your buyer is not a woodworker, but has a boat, or a classic car or other item they are currently paying to store somewhere.

Lots of 24X24 garage kits – - a 24X24 garage from Menards with a windows, a 36 inch entry door and a 16 foot garage door is 4500 dollars. (Model 1950065) – - then you have to get concrete and put it up/hire a crew.

A friend of mine is adding a 3rd stall to his 2 stall attached garage. Total cost is going to be around $25,000 (ouch!). He was told outright by the builder that he will get a tiny fraction of that back if they sell the house. I’m not sure that resale should be a big consideration. If you get the exact perfect buyer who wants what you have, then you might get lucky – but most likely you’re paying for YOUR use of the space & won’t recoup it if/when you sell.
