If you love your house design plans but need a little more space, consider our collection of Garage House or Garage Apartment plans. A garage apartment design provides parking and storage for additional cars, RVs, boats, and more while also adding living space: an extra bedroom, a simple guest suite with a bedroom and sitting area, an art studio or office space for a home business, or an apartment you can rent out. Some of these designs can also function as a full house design and plans ideal for a smaller parcel of land, with a garage on the bottom floor and two stories above with three or four bedrooms and plenty of living space.
Our great carriage house plans are all detached garages. Some have living space on the same floor as the garage, while others are designed with the living space above. These house design plans allow you to provide a home for a relative, give your child more privacy when they reach college age, or supplement your income as a rental unit. These garage apartment designs are available in a variety of styles to match your home, including contemporary, farmhouse, European, and more.
At Great House Design, we offer garage apartment house plans, many with photos, that provide space for two to four cars, plus RV storage and shop areas. Some feature an office and attic storage, while others offer enough bedrooms and living space to make great house plans for a vacation cabin. These house design plans also work well to house live-in help, such as a nanny.
