Drive Through Detached Garage Design

We’ll put this detached garage design in the unique category. As you can see this would have the potential to be a three-car garage.

Or a two-car garage with the possibility of driving in one door and out the opposite side!

How about a truck with a boat trailer attached and ready to roll? With windows lining three walls you’ll shed plenty of light on the subject!

1. Semi Detached Garage Design

This interesting detached garage design has an added feature. Although the main house is not pictured you can see the roof covered breezeway pointing toward the main building.

Note the rustic sliding doors which provide access from both front and back.

Overhead storage, as well as possible storage to the left of the vehicle, makes for an unusual floor plan, but incredibly useful space.

2. Great Angles Detached Garage Design

3. Combination Office/Detached Garage Design

There’s no reason that you can’t finish out a garage like many of the other home office sheds from Sheds Unlimited.

What a great idea! If you need a private home office, this might be the detached garage design for you.

If a home office building isn’t on your bucket list, perhaps you’d rather build out your garage as a rec room, man cave, or sewing room. You choose.

4. Engineering Marvel 5-Car Garage Design

OK, this last one really doesn’t qualify as a detached garage design, but I really couldn’t resist. Check out the lushome.com site for details on this engineering marvel. The fully functioning porch of this hangar-type garage (with living quarters on the second floor) lifts to reveal a 5-car garage! Wow!

Now let’s move on to some detached garage design features you may want to add. While some of these may seem obvious, others may be some you have never thought of. It helps to think outside the garage!

5. Add Windows to Your Detached Garage Design

Of course, you want windows in your detached garage. But have you considered the many types of garage windows and their functions and benefits?

For example, did you know you can add insulated windows?  No more losing what heat you have in your detached garage through the window pane!

Opting for skylight windows is a great option that adds light and value to your detached garage. Because skylights allow sunlight directly into your building, you can save a significant amount of energy you’d otherwise use for artificial lighting. Plus, natural lighting from the sun can even help improve air purity and has numerous other benefits.

Dormers are another great way to bring the outdoors right into your detached garage. Check out our dormer page for some of the many varieties available.

6. Add Attic Space to Your Detached Garage Design

Here at Sheds Unlimited, our motto is “Space for Life”. One of the best ways to add more space for YOUR life is a detached garage.

Add space on top of space with an attic garage. Go to our attic garage webpage for a great selection of attic garages.

7. Add Water to the Mix in Your Detached Garage

Ok, I realize most of us will never have cabinets like this included in our detached garage design. But think of the convenience of having a sink in your garage.

No more trudging through your house entryway in search of the best place to wash up. You can even keep your wife happy and wash off your dirty boots out of her sight! Visit garageliving.com for a host of before/after pics of interesting garage makeovers.

8. Add a Workbench to Your Detached Garage Design

There are workbenches… and there are workbenches. This made in America “Constitution” is specifically made for gun owners who like reloading their ammunition.

Another of their favorites is the “American Sprout” made with woodworkers in mind. Check out their great website for a full selection of solid workbenches.

9. Add an Interior Package to Your Detached Garage Design

Most of us want to make the most of what we have. Even if you add skylights or dormers to let natural light into your detached garage you’ll likely want interior lights as well. How about a garage door opener? Maybe a ceiling fan or two? Our Electrical Package is a great start! Take a look at our interior-electrical page to see what we offer, and remember you’re not limited to what you see there. Call us or stop by and we’ll be glad to discuss your unique detached garage design.

Whether you’re interested in one of the more unusual detached garage designs we looked at in the beginning, or just want to make your detached garage more of a practical addition to your life, we can work with a combination of these design ideas and combine them with a few ideas of your own. You’re the one who needs more Space for Life… we can create it for you! Request a Free Estimate, and we’ll get started.

Very easy to deal with, went up to visit them, ordered the shed the same day and their customer service was above board, friendly , listened and ordered the shed that day, they delivered on time, put it exactly where it needed to go, even the guy who delivered was friendly. Thanks

Michael Valenza from Hatboro

I spent a good amount of time researching sheds before deciding to go with Sheds Unlimited. I definitely made the right choice. The experience was truly professional from start to finish. From the sales team, to the deliver team and finally the person the actually delivered the shed. Actually, I could not be happier with the way the process went. I very much recommend Sheds Unlimited to you if you are in the market for a new shed.

Michael Corradino from Wilmington DE

Contacted Ben Shue to custom design a pool house. We had limitations because of the local  codes. Ben worked with us amd designed exactly what we wanted. He was very professional and helpful. The pool hosue looks great and was very well built . Execellent job and the enitire process was handled very well and was on time. Thank you.

Dave from Avalon NJ

Our experience with Steve Jr., Chris and Nelson was excellent. During the process of deciding to purchase a storage shed, all questions were answered promptly and completely. Our visit to your office and plant was a very pleasant experience as well. Steve arranged for the requested modifications to the shed and the shed was delivered on time and as confirmed by Nelson. The installation of our shed went also on with a glitch. We will recommend Shedsunlimited to any of our friends who might be in need of a product you provide.
Thanks again and best regards,

Worked with Mark Longnecker & Austin Beachy. From start to finish my experience was nothing short of excellence & extremely professional! Would highly recommend Sheds Unlimited. Thank you for a great Garage!

Robert Reda from Westminster, MD

So far, we are very happy with the 10 X 12 Workshop shed that we purchased from Sheds Unlimited. The quality of the building materials and the specs depicted on your web site led us to order the shed online, and we received exactly what we ordered. I was particularly impressed with the professionalism and efficiency of your employees that delivered and constructed the shed. They are truly a dynamic team! I would recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone in the market for a shed. Thank you!

Ashley from Howard Beach, NY

Great customer service! It was a great pleasure working with Sheds Unlimited, Mark & Austin were the best in answering all my question and concerns. The shipping was a success and I'm a happy customer. Thank you

luze from Chicopee, MA

We bought a shed for our business and couldn't be happier!  It looks great, is well-built, was delivered in a timely manner.  Thank You!

Julie from West Chester, PA

I purchased the shed kit due to the lack of access to the area of placement for the complete build. The kit was delivered close to the site pad. The kit was packaged very well and was received with no damage. The customer service was outstanding. The shed was excellent quality. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone.

Sheds Unlimited rocks! My 12 x 22 garage was delivered within one month of my initial call to the company. The entire experience was hassle-free and the company reps were courteous, honest and very customer oriented. No hidden fees and the quality of the structure is excellent. I have recommended Sheds Unlimited to several of my friends.
