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.

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 maybe 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.

Our shed came out beautiful! You did a fine job. Ordering and delivery were
both a breeze. We are very happy with our shed and would not hesitate to
recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone! Many thanks to Ben Shue and the
young man who skillfully set it in place it for making it so easy.

Jan from Cape May Court House, New Jersey

I purchased a 12x28 Economy Workshop Garage. At first we wanted a pre-fab garage but changed it to a build on site. It took 6 weeks to schedule delivery, but two days before deliver sheds unlimited called to reschedule. After speaking with several representatives, they were able to build my garage a day after the original date. When they arrived, my order was incorrect and missing items. It took another trip to finish. When the representative came to complete the work, he handed my fiancée a reimbursement check. Although my first impression of sheds unlimited wasn’t great, they did everything in their power to correct the situation. The garage looks great and is well built.

Deborah from Randallstown, MD

Michael C from Manville, nj

We are very happy with the shed and the quality with which it was build. Also, your delivery guy was incredible! He had to get the shed in a tight place and he did it. Loved his attitude and his skill. Truly grateful for the quality product and service.

Paul from Harrisburg

We looked a t a few websites but found ShedsUnlimited to fit our needs perfectly. We used e-mail and phone calls to get everything clarified. Our shed was delivered and set up on our foundation in 20 minutes!

Mary from Fulton, MD

I was happy with the entire process: from placing the order to scheduling the delivery to the actual delivery and of course the quality of the shed. Everything was top notch, Sheds Unlimited has their act together and I've already recommended them to some friends. Good work guys.

 

Oh boy, what a team you sent to construct our 24x24 garage!!! Zack, Mark, and Daniel worked so well together. They arrived at 6:30 AM and departed at 7:30 PM! I love the final product and will send pictures in a few months, when our rescued old house has been restored. I could not be more pleased with the garage we purchased and your super team constructed!!!

John Bendele from Newport, Kentucky

I live in Flemington, NJ and we just ordered a Shed from Shed Unlimited and the entire process was awesome. We are so pleased with the service we received. The price was "unbeatable" and the installation was amazing. A one man job...incredible to see set up. Easy 1-2-3. The quality of the Shed is great. I highly recommend Shed Unlimited. Thank you for your service, the quality and everything.

Eva - Flemington, NJ

The process could not have been any easier to get our shed ordered- super fast turn around time, expert delivery and install in our backyard (the driver had a yard slope AND well access obstacle to mitigate). Everyone that comes over immediately remarks on the shed and how amazing it looks- we highly recommend sheds unlimited to anyone who asks!
