Featured RV Garage Plan with Thoughtful Extras – The Garage Plan Shop

RV Garage Plan 024G-0011For those looking to make a getaway on weekends, holidays, or vacations this 2-car garage includes a third bay large enough to park the family RV. The 2-car garage offers a 16’ wide x 8’ tall garage door and 9’ ceiling, while the RV bay’s accommodations include a 10’ wide x 12’ tall garage door and a 13’ ceiling height. However, with these measurements not only does the RV bay allow a place to park an RV or motor home but even allows space for boat storage. Not being limited to only RV and boat owners, the spacious large bay can also be used as a gym space, providing enough room to support several pieces of workout material and equipment. Located above the 2-car garage is a loft allowing space for storage. The amenities of the garage go beyond the interior, as the exterior features a Craftsman style design promising to be a perfect complement to any Craftsman style home. View details about this RV garage plan with loft.

Garage Apartment Plans from Leading Canadian Designers – The Garage Plan Shop

Garage Apartment Plan 027G-0006While the stock plans offered by The Garage Plan Shop can be built almost anywhere, we often hear from Canadian customers looking for plans drawn by Canadian designers. We are pleased to offer two collections of detached garage plans drawn by designers in Canada. Additionally, we also offer a collection of garage apartment plans drawn by a Canadian designer. Garage apartment plans are thoughtfully designed to offer distinct parking and living areas. Typically, they are two-story structures designed with the garage on the main level and living quarters above. Just like garage apartment plans drawn by US designers, those drawn by our Canadian designer are designed to meet national building codes. Keep in mind it may be necessary to take the plans to a local designer to have any changes made or notes added to the plans in order to meet specific provincial codes before construction begins. Additionally, if your building department requires engineering, it will be necessary to hire a local engineer to review the plans and engineer them to meet local building codes and requirements. The engineer must be registered/licensed in the province where you plan to build. Below is a link to our garage apartment plans drawn by a Canadian designer:

Canadian Garage Plans from Leading Canadian Designers – The Garage Plan Shop

Garage Plan 010G-0012It is fairly common for our customers ask if we offer Canadian garage plans. The Garage Plan Shop is pleased to respond, “YES, we do!” We offer two extensive garage plan collections from two of Canada’s top-notch designers. These collections include 1-car, 2-car and 3-car garages, garage workshops, garages with boat storage, garage loft plans, and  RV garage plans just to name a few.  However, just like the garage floor plans drawn by our US designers, those drawn by our Canadian designers are designed to meet national building codes. We do not guarantee these plans will meet all provincial building codes and they are not engineered. It may be necessary for you or your builder to hire a local design professional to review the plans and add any notes or make any necessary changes to meet specific provincial codes. Likewise, if you are required to have your garage plans engineered in order to get building permits, it will be up to you or your builder to hire a local engineer to review the plans and seal or stamp them.

 

We’ve provided the links to our Canadian garage plan collections below. Take some time to browse through them to find the one that satisfies your needs.
