The Garage is very economical to build, but it looks classy. It's a hybrid, with 2x6 wall construction below and a timber framed apartment on the 2nd floor.

This design has lots of possibilites.

  • It could be a regular garage with a guest apartment upstairs, or provide extra income as a rental. For a rental it could have an outside stair with a deck.
  • Use it as a starter home. Later, one of the garages could be converted into a level-entry in-law suite or a rec room for a growing family.
  • Make it the first building on your cottage lot. It would provide lots of storage for SUVs, 4-wheelers, boat, kayaks, etc.

The upstairs apartment has a fully timbered roof with open timber valleys, tie beams, and rafters.

The elegant recessed entry allows you to stand at the door out of the weather.
