Garages can have character too.
  Garages can have character too. This particular garage was designed to match a craftsman style home that I recently had the opportunity to work on. This garage will be finished with board and batten siding and shakes and then painted to match the home. This is a great garage plan with two bays for cars and an insulated work shop on the side. Plus, a loft above that could be converted to an apartment if needed. I just liked the little additions to this garage that gave it some character like the grid pattern in the windows, the shed dormer up above, and the roof sections above the garage doors to break up the large gable that garages often have. Carraige garage doors also dressed up the front to give it a much nicer look. Its Read more

Garage Plans -- A Great Investment!
Garage Plans 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.

The Best Garage Plans
  If you have owned a home, you will probably admit that the one space that is the most neglected is your garage. Often times the garage becomes the “dump-the-junk” space where everything we don’t use inside the home ends up. Aside from the cars, garages typically store sports equipment, bicycles, motorcycles, and some even have various types of boats. Throw in tools, a workbench, yard equipment, and all those items that you just cleaned out to take to Good Will -- books, children’s toys, old dishes, furniture and clothing –and you are lucky to find anything.     What if you planned for the ideal garage plan when you build your new home? Starting with your new house plan, it is n Read more

A Barrage of Garages – Design Guidelines for Your Car’s Next Home
Tips for Designing the Ideal Garage for You     You want to build a new house. As you pore over house plans for your dream home, don’t forget about where you will put the family car—or more likely, cars. Of course, you will want something that complements the design of your house, but there are other considerations, some of which may be influenced by the size, shape, and slope of your building lot. How will you enter the garage? How big should it be? Will you want extra storage space? Do you want an attached or detached garage? Does it allow access to the house, and is it in close proximity to the kitchen (for unloading groceries)? Are the doors large enough for your needs? These are some of the questions to c Read more
