Functional Garage Plans with Carports from The Garage Plan Shop

050G-0030 Garage with CarportSome may argue that a garage provides the best shelter and convenience for parking the family cars. Others may be partial to carports due to their easy access and the multiple uses they provide. But what if you could have both? Garage plans with carports provide the solid structure many look for when it comes to protecting automobiles from the elements while providing a flexible, partially enclosed space that serves a variety of needs. The Garage Plan Shop, offers an ever growing collection of these garage floor plans.


Garage plans with carports are detached garages with an attached carport. In most cases, they offer one to three garage bays and at least one semi-enclosed stall for the carport area. While the garage works well for car storage, a workshop/hobby space or storage for lawn and garden equipment, the carport is ideal for storing a boat, trailer or other equipment. It is well suited for storing and parking other bulky/large items that may not belong in a garage or barn, but need to be protected from rain, sun, ice, snow and wind. In some cases, owners prefer to use the carport as a covered patio or porch, perfect for grilling and outdoor meals. Some like using the carport to work on automobiles or home repair projects, especially if a workshop is not available. The carport provides a covered place to work regardless of the weather. On large pieces of property such as a ranch or farm, garage plans with carports offer plenty of storage space for equipment and are sometimes an alternative solution to pole barns and outbuildings.


Garage plans with carports are available in an array of sizes and styles. A variety of garage door combinations, positioning of the carport, the number of bays or stalls, the roofline and exterior finish all contribute to the individual look and character of each design. Take some time to browse The Garage Plan Shop’s collection of garage plans with carports to find the right one to suit your needs.
