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 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.

Sheds unlimited was a pleasure to deal with. All my questions were answered promptly by e-mail or phone call which is very rare these days. We were very pleased with the quality of the shed and the expertise of the gentleman working the mule to install it.

Alisa fonti from Branchburg,nj

ShedsUnlimited was the right and best choice for me! I called several times with questions before making my choice, and always received a patient, helpful salesperson who not only knows his sheds but also knows customer service (a vanishing service these days). This level of service extended to the delivery coordinator and the person delivering the shed and handling it with care — all very professional.  And yes, the shed is solid — had it made to the size I needed — and looks great! Five plus stars goes to this company. Thank you for taking pride in your work and valuing your customers. My shed was made in the USA.

Lisa from Cranford, NJ

We had a great experience all around.
Excellent communication and customer
service. The men who came to our home
and built the shed, were friendly and
efficient. Just two of them had the shed
put together in one afternoon.
Thanks so much.

Cannot say enough how easy it was to deal with Mark and the crew. My calls were met with a friendly voice and everything that was promised was delivered. The shed is great, Nate the driver was great and it was just refreshing not only to be treated the way I was but to receive the friendliness & professionalism from a super bunch of people.

mike from East islip ny

The best "legal" placement for our shed is well within view of our home, so we really wanted it to be a positive part of the landscape. Shayne was able to squeeze the shed into position with inches to spare between trees and the house. The shed is very solidly built and looks fantastic. Even our neighbor complimented it

Alec from New Jersey

The shed is absolutely beautiful. We ordered a 12 x 10 stock shed which was delivered on time and as advertised did not leave any marks in the lawn. The shed even came complete with a lock on the door. Nothing to do other than enjoy the shed. It is very roomy and well built and holds more than you think it would. We would recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone!!!!

Angelo Cirinelli from Fairfield, NJ

This was a great experience from the purchase to the delivery.  Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable and professional.  And....they delivered exactly when they promised!!!  I highly recommend Sheds Unlimited to anyone in the market for a shed.

APRIL from Downingtown, pa

These are best sheds to buy, I researched others in our area and they were overpriced and the not the same quality.

Melissa from Enola, PA

the delivery was on schedule, and the set up went quite smoothly. The shed
exceeded our expectations and is an enhancement to our backyard. thanks

I could not be happier with my Sheds Unlimited purchase and experience. The Shed is a true work of craftsmanship. I paid a very fair price for a quality product and great service. The deliver was awesome to watch- our yard is challenging- on a hill and covered with trees... the Shed Mule is an incredible vehicle... and the Sheds Unlimited Team is masterful in operating the machine- they landed my shed perfectly, quickly, and with minimal effect on our yard. Thanks for a great experience!
