About Garage Loft Plans – The Garage Plan Shop

Garage Loft Plan 006G-0067If you have a need for a basic garage, there are plenty of designs to choose from. The Garage Plan Shop offers everything from simple 1-car garages to 4-car garage plans and even larger designs. But wouldn’t it be better if there were a bonus? Have you considered a garage loft plan? Garage plans with lofts are fairly common especially in the one-car, two-car, and three-car styles. If you are going to take the time to build a garage, you might want to consider other needs you can satisfy by incorporating a loft.

 

Detached garage loft plans accommodate a broad range of needs and come in a generous selection of sizes and architectural styles allowing you to find one to blend perfectly with your home and satisfy your needs. The loft space is an unfinished space located above the parking area and is accessed by a pull-down stair or an enclosed staircase. Some loft areas are strictly designed for storage having low overhead clearance but provide plenty of room to stash boxes and store other family treasures. This type of garage with loft is great for attic or basement overflow, seasonal storage and holiday decorations. Face it. Most families have a lot of “stuff” cluttering their living areas and other storage spaces. So consider reducing your clutter and organizing your belongings with the help of a garage loft plan.

 

When a garage offers a loft space that is large enough to move around freely and has a standard or slightly lower than standard ceiling height, the loft opens up many other possibilities that go far beyond unfinished storage space. Think about what special living space you’d love to have if you had the opportunity to add it to your home. Would you like a home office that is part of your home but outside the main house? Do you want a place to work in peace without ever leaving home? Would your family enjoy a recreation or game room? Do you enjoy crafts? Could you use a hobby or craft room? How about an exercise area to help you like a healthy lifestyle? The possibilities are endless when it comes to finishing the loft space of a detached garage. Talk with your builder about the numerous ways you can finish this space to accommodate your family’s specific needs.

 

If you are planning to build a detached garage plan in the near future, consider the advantages of building a garage loft plan. Your family will surely reap the benefits for many years to come.

The Garage Plan Shop: 6 Uses for Garage Plans Other than Parking

006G-0061 Garage PlanMost of us think of the garage as a place to park the car, but overtime, garages have evolved into much more that. The garage can accommodate many more needs than traditional parking. Designed to accommodate anything from one car to four or more vehicles, the sky is the limit when it comes to the many possibilities a garage can offer. If you need extra space to accommodate a specific need, consider garage plans. Here are some of the most popular uses for garage plans beyond parking the family cars:

 

Storage Space – Every family needs storage. Whether you lack a basement or your basement and attic are overflowing with boxes, a detached garage makes a great storage space for items that just don’t seem to fit in the house. A garage also works well for storing sporting equipment and the kids’ toys from bikes and scooters to ball gloves, golf clubs and even hunting gear. Garages can provide a place for storing seasonal items when not in use such as pool equipment and patio furniture when the weather turns cold and holiday decorations. Add shelves and cabinets for organization. 

 

 Lawn and Garden Shed – For those with a green thumb, there are always tools, supplies and other lawn and garden equipment that need to be stored rear round. A 1-car or 2-car garage offers a nice alternative to a backyard shed and features an overhead door making it easy to access big items like the riding lawn mower without a hassle. Furthermore, it is easy to add shelves or cabinets to accommodate small hand tools, flower pots, seeds and bulbs for your flower or vegetable garden. You might even want to add a planting table or utility sink.

 

Workshop – The family handy man will know just how to convert a detached garage plan into a workshop. Garages make a great shop area providing opens spaces to work on large projects with plenty of room to store tools, lumber and other supplies. They even offer enough space to add a workbench or table. Furthermore, there is no need to clean up your home repair project every time you work on it. A workshop will allow you to leave the project in progress and come back to finish it later. Plus, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you can lock the garage keeping the kids from wandering inside and possibly harming themselves with sharp tools or heavy items.

 

Hobby Room – Hobbyists, crafters and woodworkers often need a large workspace to work on various projects that can be dirty, create a lot of dust or require a large layout space that a room in the home or the basement can’t provide. Building a detached garage plan for a hobby room keeps the mess outside and provides the hobbyist a space all his or her own to work on projects without disturbing the family or creating unwanted noises and messes inside the house. Garage plans offer more than enough storage space for tools and supplies. Add good task lighting, a workbench, table or other work surface and you’ll be ready to go!

 

Mechanic’s Garage – Auto mechanics and car enthusiasts might like a detached garage for working on cars rather than just protecting them from the elements. Furthermore, these people have a lot of tools and auto parts. Many designs include storage closets providing a great place to keep these items out of a child’s reach.  

 

Detached garage plans a very versatile and flexible accommodating many different needs. What can a garage plan do for you?
