House Plans with Detached Garage

House plans with detached garages offer significant versatility when lot sizes can vary from narrow to large. Sometimes, given the size or shape of the lot, it’s not possible to have an attached garage on either side of the primary dwelling. The building lot may be narrow or the driveway may be located on the other side of the property. In either case, a detached garage may be the perfect solution as it offers endless possibilities on where to build both the home and garage on the lot.

The House Plan Company features a collection of house plans with detached garages in many different architectural styles, including Craftsman, Country and Contemporary home designs. These designs also come in varying sizes, such as carports, one- and two-car garages, garages with apartments and lofts, and more. The home plans with detached garages address various storage needs as well as other uses for the building, such as workshop and office space, mother-in-law suites and hobby rooms.

A detached garage can be placed in front of, on the side of or behind the home. A garage with a mother-in-law suite on the second floor can be located a little further from the home to offer greater separation between living spaces. Or a garage can be built closer to outdoor living space to provide storage for patio furniture, pool equipment and gardening tools. The possibilities are truly endless as any of the house plans with detached garages can be customized to meet specific criteria.
