Depending on the plans, garage can actually offer more than one function all at once. If you think a parking alone isn’t enough for your garage, you may want to widen your ideas on more purposes for the available space. The following plans show that it is possible to make an advanced garage that you will find cool.
1. Three Cars Garage with a Small Cottage
The very idea of this garage is that to provide one more living space with privacy and detached from the main house. This plan can be the right option if you like to rent it for short stay, which is a booming business lately, and you can use it for a guesthouse when you are hosting some guests.
The lower floor consists of several rooms. The garage has a front access and it can house two cars nicely. There is a nice covered porch, and the door leads you to a small shop. Behind the shop, there is storage with a stairway leading up to the upper floor. This garage also has an alternative access on the side, with a garage door sealing a one-car garage on the back.
On the upper floor, you have the guesthouse. It has a spacious room for a living room next to the kitchen and a half bath. The master bedroom is completed with a built in closet, a private bath, and more storage space. This can be a nice looking garage with more value.
2. A Gentleman’s Garage
Technically, this is a one story garage, but it does have an upper floor for additional storage. The exterior shows us that it has two bays at the front plus one more door to access the garage. On the far end, the garage is big and tall enough for an RV. Meanwhile, the other garage should park two cars nicely.
The space is also big enough for more than just parking. From the back of the garage, there is enough space for your own small shop. If you like woodworking or maintaining your own vehicles, this can be your own heaven. A small office is also added on the front corner with a full bath behind it. You can spend the rest of the day here comfortably.
On the corner of the shop, you should find a stairway leading you to the upper floor. This upper floor is designed to be additional storage that features its own door for security. It can reduce the amount of clutters in the house while accessing to your stuffs will be much easier this way. This design is effective and fun at the same time.
3. A Guest Quarter on Top of a Garage
You don’t want a separated office or workshop in the garage, but you can always have a multi purposes room that you can use anytime. This garage looks usual from the outside. It has three bays on the front while it also features a covered porch on the side. This porch is probably the best spot to enjoy your beer while looking at the house.
You can also access the garage from a door next to the last bay, while entering from the porch is also possible. While the garage can house three cars all at once in the most comfortable way, you still can fit in several cabinets to store things neatly. On the right wall, you will find a stairway leading you to the upper floor.
The upper floor is a guest quarter where you can fit in a small bar and invite some of your friends. You can also host a special dinner here without letting the guests snooping on your private space in the main house. The upper room also features a full bath which is very convenient and a balcony to make it even more exquisite.
4. Modern Garage with a Shop
This garage features a modern and minimalist looking exterior. It has the combination of metal, glass, and natural stones, which will make a perfect fit for a modern house. It can be a detached plan, while attaching to the main house is also possible. The roofing is creative so the garage doesn’t look boring at all.
On the inside, the detail is pretty simple. The space can houses up to three cars, one on the right side, and the other two on the main floor. Behind the one car garage space, there is a storage space to keep thing neat, while next to it, we can find a small workshop fitted against the back wall after a small full bath to keep you convenient.
There is no other access into this garage other than the two bays, but it is possible to add a door on the right side of the building if you want to. This design is simple yet it offers more on its simplicity.
5. A Garage and a Small Flat
From the outside alone, this garage looks not only gorgeous but also luxurious. Maybe it is because all of the plants around it, but it is maybe because of the vaulted covered porch on the corner too. The porch makes an excellent entry way to the small flat behind the door while it has consistent nice looking exterior to the rest of the design.
The flat has a small kitchen, a full bath with shower, built in closet, as well as a spacious living room. You can rent this flat, and you can also use this for an additional room whenever you have guests staying in the house. It has privacy and it has the fine look which will be very much welcomed.
The garage on the side has one large door for convenient access in and out the garage. The space is enough to park two cars at once, while you also still have enough space for more. There is another door on the back to access the garage, and it is possible to attach this plan to the main house plan.
