Rustic Garage Apartment Adds Value to Your Home – The Garage Plan Shop

Garaeg Apartment Plan 039G-0001Not just limiting itself to providing additional parking, this unique three-car garage apartment plan avails itself of a variety of other uses adding extra value to your already existing home. With two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen, and a dining room located above the garage, the possibilities of how to utilize this space are quite extensive. Serving as a guesthouse, it allows visiting friends and family not only their own privacy, but also gives you, as host, the chance to relax without feeling like you’re running a bed and breakfast. A more permanent occupant may appreciate the living quarters as they may be utilized as residence for a nanny or other home-based employee. If the kids have their nanny years behind them, this garage apartment plan works wonderfully as a home for returning college students or even the post college student who is still hanging around. Beyond serving living needs, the finished living space could function as the setting for a home-based office by providing a meeting area for clients in a rustic, welcoming, and professional setting. For those with storage needs, there is plenty of room for parking and storage in the three-car garage.
