Garden Oak Expandable Two-Car Garage Plans and Workshop Plans


The Garden Oak series of garages and workshops starts with a sturdy 24' wide, two bay garage with pull-down stairs to a high and dry storage loft. You can build yours at 22', 24' or 26' deep. Leave plenty of room on your property on either side. The drawings include plans for 12' wide expansion sheds for more storage space or extra garage bays. You can also plan on using one of the easy-to-build sheds as your hobby shop, studio, workshop or home office. Construction of this garage uses standard 2x6 studs and 2x8 roof rafters.

The plan set that you'll receive allows you to build a 24' wide two-car garage now and expand it later. Or, you can build your garage with three or four parking bays right away. The extra bays are easy-to-build shed-roof structures. You can easily reverse the floor plan shown above if that works better for your property. You can match your home's materials and build your garage at 24,' 26' or 28' deep. The plans come with a variety of options and add-ons that let you customize your garage now or in the future.


All layouts include a storage loft, over the Main Garage, with access by pull-down stairs.
