As you plan your home’s design, you may want to consider adding stairs from the garage to the basement level.

Garage to Basement StairsStairs directly down from the garage will make moving large bulky items in and out of the lower level much easier especially if the home plan has an “L” or “U” interior staircase. Another benefit is maintaining a cleaner interior of your home and not tracking dirt and debris through the house to and from the basement door.
