The perfect modern getaway home or an ideal addition to many contemporary houses, this unique garage apartment plan really is not a garage apartment at all. It is more of a “carport apartment” making it a one-of-a-kind design with living spaces positioned above a 678 square foot, covered parking area. The mechanical area (110 square feet) provides easy installation of the heating and cooling ducts in the floor and roof truss system. Follow private interior stairs to the upper level where the modest apartment offers a combined living and eating area, two bedrooms and a full bath. The exterior is fashioned with stacked stone, commercial style windows and cable railing systems. The 1/12 pitched roof is capped with metal to provide snow removal. The balcony can be fitted with radiant heating for snow removal as well. Designed with energy efficient features, this modern day carriage house plan calls for a tankless water heater and a high efficiency air conditioning unit. Incomparable to most garage apartment plans, this unique carport design is sure to turn some heads.
This plan has 12” poured concrete wall framing for the parking area. The upper level exterior wall framing is 2X6.
