Unique garage plans are designed to stand out among the rest in one way or another.
Additionally, they are designed to deliver a specific function while offering individuality. Many unique garage plans are fashioned to satisfy the owner’s needs and desires while others are designed to accommodate particular elements of the lot they are to be built on such as lot size, shape or slope. Some offer one-of-a-kind features, and others deliver a striking exterior look that will catch anyone’s attention at first glance. Original style, futuristic elements, and unusual features are a few things that give these plans their own individuality. While unique garage plans can vary in size, shape and the number or cars they accommodate, all of them reveal unusual and/or distinct elements. Many of these garage designs would not typically be found along an ordinary neighborhood street. While unique garage plans may have a one-of-a-kind exterior appearance or offer elements not commonly found with traditional garage plans, they can offer some of the same features and services such as:
- Workshops or workbenches
- Drive-thru bays
- Storage spaces (closets, lofts or a designated open area for storage)
- Extra deep bays for boat storage
- Apartments, studios or guest suites (finished living quarters)
Most of the plans in our unique garage plan collection were created and drawn by residential designers with an imagination for originality and a knack to incorporate form and function as well. Remember: What makes a garage unusual or unique is in the eye of the beholder. What might be classified as a unique garage plan by The Garage Plan Shop, many not necessarily seem unique to everyone else. When searching for a unique garage blueprints it is necessary to search our collections based upon your personal tastes, preferences, requirements and style choices.
