*Plans are drafted to meet average conditions and building codes in Nebraska, Ohio, and Texas at the time they are designed (contact us for more information). Because codes and requirements can change and may vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, the designers cannot warrant compliance with any specific code or regulation. All plans can be adapted to your local building codes and requirements. It is the responsibility of the purchaser and/or builder of each plan to see that the structure is built in strict compliance with all governing municipal codes (city, county, state, and federal).

Detached garage plan 98174 is a traditional garage design has the ability to store between 2 to 4 cars. The extra vechicle storage comes from constructing the garage design without the optional workshop. However if the ability to store 4 vechicles isn't need, for those who enjoy work working or crafting this garage plan's optional workshop is a great build option. With the ability to partition off the space the work shop can be opened to the main garage with either a standard man door or a small internal garage door. The workshop isn't just for wood working, this could be a studio, hobby or game room, or just good old storage space. Garage design 98174 is a great plan to consider adding to any property.
