Garage Apartment Designs for Self-Sufficiency

Garage Apartment DesignsWhen proximity and independence are equally important - as is often the case with elderly relatives or college-age children - a fully self-sufficient garage apartment may be an ideal solution. Generally complete with a compact kitchen, bathroom, dining/living space, and at least one separate bedroom, most are truly impressed by the conveniences afforded by traditional garage apartment designs, which many find can offer just the right balance of autonomy and supervision. At, you'll  enjoy a superb selection, which includes dozens of unique garage apartment designs to choose from in a variety of sizes and styles. A wide range of options for exterior finishes, rooflines and architectural designs ensures that you'll be as pleased with the exterior as your tenant(s) are with the interior.

Loft Space and Garage Plans

Garage Plans With LoftMany homeowners may feel that the prospect of building full-fledged carriage house plans seems like a risky proposition. True, the multiple rooms and amenities of garage apartment plans can always be used as a guest suite or rental unit - and this may be especially important should circumstances with elderly relatives or college-age children come into play. However, the construction of a completely self-sufficient apartment may be a time consuming and expensive project to undertake for a space that may not always need to function as living quarters. For just this reason, many find garage plans with loft space an ideal middle-ground solution.

Garage plans that integrate loft space are set apart from traditional garage apartment designs in that they typically feature a broad, single-room unfinished area on the second floor that is often used as a storage area. Many people use garage plans with loft space as storage for attic or basement overflow, but some of the larger lofts can be finished as a hobby room, office or exercise area for those who choose to go the extra mile. Not only does the versatility of a loft help homeowners rationalize the upfront cost of building a new garage, but loft designs also tend to have good resale value should a move become necessary or desired in the future.
