How much does Chris Evans’s mega garage cost?

To create a mega garage, you’re looking at a cost of around £250,000. This cost is based on creating a garage of roughly 185m2, finished to a high-quality standard.

Do you have a garage to convert?

Before building the interior for your cars, you’ll need a space for it. If you already have a garage or outbuilding, you may want to extend those. Otherwise, you’ll need to build your mega garage from scratch – as long as you have enough land to build on.

For those of us with more modest budgets than Chris Evans, you might be thinking of building a standard brick garage. The average cost of which is around £18,000 to £30,000. To find out more about those costs check out our build a garage cost guide.

For a garage extension, the average cost is £3,000 to £20,000 – depending on how much you’re extending your garage by. For more about costs, check out our garage extension cost guide. Though, if you’re doing it Mr Evans style, the cost will obviously be much higher.

If you’re inspired by sectional garage doors, the average price you’ll pay can range from £750 to £2,500 per door. See more those costs in our sectional garage doors price guide.
