As its name suggests, a 1-car garage plan or single-car garage is designed to provide sheltered parking for one car. Floor plans are available in a wide range of styles and sizes ensuring you’ll find just the right one to complement your home and fit your lot. Various rooflines such as gable, reverse gable or hip rooflines top these detached structures delivering greater variation in style and design. Furthermore, sometimes special extras such as a storage space, workbench, attached workshop or second floor loft are available adding to the practicality and functionality of single-car garage plans.

Typically, 1-car garage plans are designed with windows and a service entry for easy access.

No matter how you plan to use the garage, chances are you’ll find the perfect one to accommodate your needs.
