If you have spent any time around older folks, you may have heard of a radio show from way back in the day called Fibber McGee and Molly. Fibber had a hall closet that he stored everything in and when the door was opened an avalanche of items fell out. Anyone who lives with a minimal amount of storage space can certainly sympathize with this situation. Just where can you go with all of your stuff? This two-car garage plan that is right up your alley or maybe just behind the house. Not only is there space to house two autos and a workbench for all those projects that you can’t do without one, there is a loft with 485 square feet of storage. Organize all of that extra clutter that has nowhere else to go. If you miss Fibber’s closet, don’t worry, there’s one included with this garage loft plan right next to the workbench.
Check out this basic two-car garage plan measuring 22’ X 24’ with a 17’ X 7’ overhead door. That’s enough space for two cars plus a workbench or small storage space. Finally, the garage offers 8’ ceilings and windows for natural lighting. Those are just the basics. But let’s think outside the box, or for that matter, the garage, for just a minute. This detached garage plan provides 528 square feet accessed by not only a back door but that spacious overhead door in front. What a great way to haul projects in and out of a woodshop or art studio. Or, how about the ultimate garden shed with room enough for shovels, hoes, tiller, lawn mower and even a tractor? There’s room for a garage band to practice and to back in the van to load up equipment. Maybe going out to the gym doesn’t have to be any further than your own gym that opens up to view the great outdoors on sunny days. What about a meeting space with plenty of room for working on projects for your children’s scout troop? Or maybe you just get tired of hauling things up and downstairs to the basement and would enjoy some extra, easily accessed storage space? For whatever activities or storage space that you find lacking in your home, consider this basic two-car garage plan to accommodate your needs.

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.
