A Guide to One-Car Garage Plans

A detached one-car garage gives you plenty of room to store your vehicle or other valuables on your property. Besides car or equipment storage, you can also use it as a work, entertainment or guest space. At Family Home Plans, we offer more than one hundred single-car garage plans in various architectural styles to accommodate your current property. This guide discusses the features and benefits of a one-car garage plan to help you decide how to build yours.

Advantages of a Detached One-Car Garage

A single detached garage adds value to your home in the following ways:

  • Less noise: Since an attached garage shares a wall with the rest of your home, people in the house can hear you while you're working in the garage. You may also be concerned about whether you're disturbing your loved ones when you use your power tools, practice an instrument or watch TV. With a detached garage some distance from your main property, you can have a calm, quiet environment to work and indulge in hobbies. You can also have peace of mind that the noise won't bother anyone.
  • More privacy: When you're trying to get work done or have a moment alone to yourself, you want a stress-free atmosphere free from interruptions. A detached garage offers a private place for work, spending free time or enjoying your loved ones' company. You can also use it to host overnight guests. Instead of having them in your home and interrupting your daily routine, your visitors can feel welcome on your property and have their own space.
  • Complements older-style homes: The attached garage is a relatively new design, so it sometimes looks out of place on a traditional or historic home. Single detached garages initially looked like carriage-style houses, so they fit into your older house's design. You can also find garage plans of different architectural styles to complement your existing property.
  • Protects the home from harmful gases: Your car emits gases into your garage if you leave it running. The weed killer, paint, pesticides and heavy cleaners you may store in your garage can also release toxins into the air if you spill them. A detached garage allows you to keep these harmful contaminants out of your home so your family can breathe clean air.
  • Limits home access points: The garage door can be a significant entryway into the main house. An intruder can try to open it manually or sneak in through a window so they can walk into your home through the garage entry door. A detached garage provides additional security because it removes this access point from the rest of the house.
  • Allows room to expand: Your detached garage may be the perfect size for your property now, but it's also possible to build onto it in the future. Even though an attached garage is limited to your existing structure's size and framing, you can conveniently expand a detached one depending on your future lifestyle and family needs.
