About Garage Apartment Plans & Garage Apartment Designs...
Garage Apartment plans are typically designed as detached garages that include finished living quarters. Generally, they provide parking for one or more cars on the main level with the apartment above. With garage apartment plans, the living space is modest, offers just the basics, and is designed for efficiency and practicality. The finished living area often includes one or two bedrooms and baths and an open living area that combines the gathering space with the dining area and compact kitchen. Some floor plans are a simple studio while others have walls that separate the sleeping areas from the gathering areas. Closet and storage space is often minimal. A variety or architectural styles, such as Craftsman or Traditional, mixed with various rooflines and door combinations give each design its own special look. Garage apartment plans are very closely related to Garage Plans with Flex Space and Garage Loft plans.
Garage apartment designs are today’s modern version of yesterday’s carriage houses. They make a nice alternative to a guest house or in-law suite, or they can provide much needed space for a hobby room, art studio or home office. Providing all the basic comforts of home, these designs are sometimes built as living quarters for the maid, groundskeeper, or nanny on large estates. Other times, garage apartment plans are built as vacation homes or hunting cabins. Ranging in size, offering various parking bay depths, and available with a variety of floor plan features, these garage plans offer everything from enough room to park the family cars, a boat and trailer, and/or a motorcycle to storage for lawn and garden equipment, hunting and fishing gear, or the lawn mower and recycling bins. Some even include a workshop or workbench. Occasionally, garage apartments are designed with the garage and living areas all on one level. This type of layout positions the garage on one side of the structure and the finished living areas on the other. These one-level designs are especially appealing to families with aging loved ones in their care. They allow the older family member to live independently, while still living near someone else should they need a little assistance. Designed to accommodate a variety of needs, Garage Apartment plans are an ideal solution to your extra parking and additional living space needs.
