Knee walls are a relatively simple upgrade that offer advantages worth considering for a new garage building. A one or two foot knee wall means that standard seven foot tall garage doors may be replaced with eight foot or taller garage doors to accomodate trucks, motor homes and other tall vehicles. If the garage is to be used as a workshop, taller walls also provide more room for taller, larger windows and even storage lofts. In a typical 24' x 24' garage, two feet of additional wall height equates to 1,152 cubic feet of space that could be utilized through a combination of storage lofts or wall cabinets.
Garages can be installed on elevated knee walls starting at an additional charge of $2.50 per square foot. Please contact us directly to discuss your specific requirements.
