We’ll Answer All Your Building & Construction Questions

How much does it cost to build a garage?
New garage construction will vary from project to project, but with Fingerlakes Construction owning all process steps, we can lower our clients' costs.
How much value does a garage add to a house?
A new garage adds anywhere from 64% to 81% return on investment or an estimated $20,000 to $35,000 in home value.
Does a detached garage add value to my home?

How long does it take to build a barndominium?
The time before living in your new barndominium varies from project to project. However, if you call us and describe your ideal home, we can provide an accurate timeline before completion.
What is the life expectancy of a barndominium?
Think about how old barns can be. They are durable structures made to protect animals that are way stronger than us. Your barndominium will have this lifespan and can last well over 100 years.
Do barndominiums hold their value?
Barndominiums are phenomenal investments! A well-built barndominium, especially one with modern features, will appreciate over time. Given their durability, you’ll see a decent increase in value over the years.
