Garages are good. Period. Garages can be used for just about anything -- they provide you with a great place to dump all your junk; they keep your car(s) out of the elements; and they can make a great workshop or laundry room. Your garage can be as organized or as cluttered as you want. You can really tell a lot about a person by his or her garage.
Sadly, many older (and newer) homes don't have garages, but this isn't a reason to mourn! If you have the room, you can always build a detached or "stand-alone" garage, but you should definitely find a garage plan that will match the style of your existing home.
We at The Plan Collection have recently added over 30 new garage plans. We have plain and simple stand-alone garages as plain and simple as you can get but we also have a lot of great garage plans that focus on style and curb appeal. Many of them even feature upstairs apartments!
Garages with Apartments are great for everyone from visiting in-laws to college students that are home for summer vacation. You can even rent out the apartment to make a little money off of it. With all of these great benefits offered by a new garage, you really ought to look through our new Garage Plans. Check them Out!
