Attached Garage Plans

Planning stages The main steps involved in planning the construction of an attached garage are the following: 1) determine your needs 2) check municipal regulations (the size of the garage is an integral part of municipal bylaws). Most municipalities have strict rules about the size of garages, sometimes based on the size of the house and/or land. For example, there could be setbacks to respect when choosing the location or even a maximum height to consider when it comes time to design plans 3) design the plans for the garage with the help of a professional who will make sure your needs and any local regulations are respected 4) obtain the building permit 5) plan financing The most expensive of the four possible projects is to build an attached garage. Adding an apartment over a garage is also expensive, but it could generate revenue. If you are planning to build a garage attached to your house, take a look at this text.

Attached Garage Plans

One big decision is whether to attach the garage to your house or build it as a separate structure. An attached garage usually costs less, and it wins on convenience. You stay dry, save footsteps, and it’s easier to use part of the space as a pantry, mudroom, laundry area, or other extension of your house. If you’re concerned about security, an attached garage lets you tap an opener and drive right in without setting foot outside.

A garage should look like an accessory to a house, not dwarf it or turn it into what some people call a “snout house,” where all you see on the front is the garage door. It’s a lot easier to get the scale right if you build a detached garage. But if you have to tack a big garage onto a modest-size house, there are ways to minimize the visual impact. For instance, setting the front farther back from the street than the main entrance to the house makes the garage seem less dominant.

Local rules might also govern driveway design, wall or roof height, and the total amount or percentage of your lot you can cover with impervious surface (roofs and pavement). Local architects and builders usually keep on top of these requirements, as do lumberyards that sell packages that contain garage plans and materials.

This garage is a basic design of a 2-car garage. This is good because the more simple the design, usually, the easier it is to construct. It also has ample amount of room to store your tools, sentimental items, decorations, or even space for a good sized workshop.

The humble garage in Palo Alto, Calif., where Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard helped launch the electronics industry, is just 12 feet wide and 18 feet long. It was fine for a 1917 Ford Model T. But cars today are much bigger, so garages are, too. For a single car, figure on at least 14 feet by 20 feet. You can build a two-car garage as small as 20 feet by 24 feet, but you’ll be happier with an extra 6 or 8 feet in length and width.

Two-car driveways should be at least 20 feet wide, and up to 24 feet if the sides aren’t clear. If you plan to park in front of the garage, allow at least 20 feet between the sidewalk and the garage door. (Your city might let you reduce this distance if you use an automatic door opener.) Even if you aren’t required to include a turnaround area, working one into your plan may be a good idea, particularly if you have a long driveway or live on a busy street.  At minimum, you need an area 10 feet wide by about 12 feet deep to back the car into for a turnaround.

But I’d love to hear your thoughts. What do you think is most important to have in a garage…functionality, appearance, space, etc.? And what is your favorite style of garage?

The first step is to determine whether it’s physically feasible to fit a garage on your lot. At your local planning department, find out how close you can build to the edges of your property. Also ask about any special restrictions that apply to garages; some communities require deeper setbacks on sides with doors, for example.

However, this garage is detached. And this is actually a good thing because this means it could be used as a workshop and not worry about dragging dust and other particles directly into the house. And if you are worried about getting wet when walking from the house to your car, remember that you could always build a covered walkway.

If you’re adding a garage, you also need a driveway. In older neighborhoods, narrow side-yard driveways are sometimes just 8 feet wide. In newer areas, single-car driveways are at least 10 feet wide, and up to 14 feet when there are obstructions on either side that could scrape an opened car door.

But the amount of storage that could be had from this one garage is amazing. You should have no problem storing your vehicles, equipment, décor, and even finding a small space for a workspace.

If possible, face the garage doors to the side and add windows and other house-like details to the front wall. If the doors must face the street, a roof overhang that matches the style of your house will help. Two one-car doors look less overwhelming and more interesting than a double door.

But beyond the video, this garage is awesome. It is really large and would have room for just about anything you would need to store. I could envision vehicles, ATV’s, a workshop, and lots of my home décor items all fitting in there rather easily. So check it out.
