The ‘Petersfield’ Craftsman bungalow pairs perfectly, both in style and function, with the THD-1994 detached garage plan.

A detached garage such as this can increase your home’s living space. However, it can also function as an amazing guest suite or rental space for additional income.

Not all detached garages have to be multi-level or even multi-car spaces; sometimes, simplicity is key. And with simplicity also comes affordability.

Take the striking ‘Gleason’ contemporary plan. It’s a wonderful home with over 3,000 square feet, but it’s missing one thing: a garage. By selecting a simple yet stylish detached garage plan, such as ‘The Nook’ seen here, you can add some much needed parking to an already amazing home, all while staying within budget.

With many larger or more spacious homes, you may not need a detached garage that provides a whole guest suite or living area. Instead, explore our many standalone detached garage plans that are as simple as they are functional, providing you with storage and parking to enhance your home, all at a price that you will love.

Parking for 2 Cars, 1 RV, and Storage Upstairs

A detached garage doesn’t only have to add parking for cars, equipment storage, or even living space to your home. Another wonderful benefit of these plans is their adaptability and can even include an apartment. Many homeowners choose to build a detached garage specifically for things such as their RVs or boats, even golf carts and ATVs. These items wouldn’t fit in a traditional garage, but choosing the right detached garage can add the convenience. So, explore our many detached garages to see what you find, or ask a house plan advisor for assistance!

For homeowners with acreage, sometimes large machinery and equipment can get in the way. From riding lawn mowers to vehicles for hauling items, to even a tractor or two, traditional garages simply don’t provide enough. If you find yourself short on space or needing somewhere to store your equipment and items, consider one of our detached garages that take after a southern barn. Large doors and ample space provide the protective coverage that you need to keep your things organized and easily accessible, whatever the job at hand.

No matter the reason, building a detached garage can offer benefits to virtually any house plan. We encourage you to explore our collection of homes with detached garages, and if you have any questions or need help, feel free to reach out to us; we are happy to be of assistance!
