Unique Garage Apartment Plan with 5-Car Garage

035G-0009 Unique Garage ApartmentIf you are looking for a unique garage apartment plan, this is the one for you. First begin with its Victorian styling and ornate details delivering striking curb appeal. Elegant porch columns and shuttered windows are just a few of the details highlighting the exterior of this design. The Victorian architecture is quite uncommon for a detached garage, but stunning nonetheless. Another unique feature about this floor plan is its 5-car garage revealing 1215 square feet of parking area. A combination of two tandem bays and a single-car bay makes the floor plan stand out among many. Though an unusual arrangement, the garage easily handles five family vehicles or a pair of oversized vehicles and a smaller one. Furthermore, the tandem bays are deep enough to accommodate boat storage too. A covered porch leads to the private interior stairs ascending to the second floor where you’ll discover more unusual features about this unique plan. Here, two bayed windows fill the large game/living room with natural light. A fireplace adds a cozy touch. With the step-saver kitchen overlooking the gathering space, the upper level is the perfect entertainment space for guests or it works well as a living area for guests, the in-laws or the nanny. A sunny bedroom and a full bath finish off the garage apartment. Make note of all the attic storage, great for stashing boxes and seasonal items. A masterful blend of style and function, this unique garage apartment plan will look great tucked in the backyard behind your Victorian style home.

4-Car Garage Plans and Larger Garages

051G-0033 8-Car Garage PlanMulti-car garage designs such as 4-car garage plans and larger detached garages are designed for the storage for four or more cars or other automobiles. They come in a wide range of sizes and styles ensuring you’ll find just the right one to fit your lot and blend nicely with your home. Some architectural styles include country, Craftsman and traditional. The façades of multi-car garage plans typically feature finishes such as horizontal siding, shakes, brick and stone, adding character to each design. The exteriors can be simple, having little detail, or more decorative, sporting intricate details and other extras like covered porches, dormers and stylish overhead doors. Furthermore, various rooflines and different overhead door combinations contribute to a greater selection of designs. Multiple car designs like 4-car garage plans may offer four or more bays or perhaps two tandem bays accommodating four cars or maybe two automobiles and a boat, trailer or oversized vehicle. Sometimes, these floor plans incorporate deeper bays outfitted with taller doors, just right for storing an RV or camper. Multi-car garages work well for storing the family cars and other storage needs. If you only have two or three cars, use the other bay(s) for motorcycles, ATVs, kayaks, bikes, a golf cart or lawn and garden equipment. You might even want to use one bay for a workshop. Car enthusiasts will find that 4-car and larger garage designs are great for restoring and working on historical and other favorite cars. And if all this isn’t enough, some of these designs incorporate other usable spaces such as a flex room, half or full bath, storage loft or workshop. Not only are multi-car garage plans functional and accommodating, they also will enhance any piece of property and add value to your home.
