Need help deciding if a front entry garage is right for your North Carolina custom home? Here are some of the pros and cons of a front facing garage, to help you decide.

Why should you choose a front entry garage floor plan?

- Front exterior can be dressed up with specialty garage doors (such as a carriage style)Raleigh Floor Plans | Front Entry Garage, stone or brick accents, decorative glass, light mountings and more.

- Front entries require less driveway square footage (which means a lower cost in materials and labor).

- Front entry garage homes can generally fit on smaller lots.

- Homes with front entry garages usually don't have windows in the garage, which can save some cost.
