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.

From purchase to delivery the entire customer service team was fantastic! The shed is well built and the process couldn't have been any easier. We are very satisfied and will definitely use Sheds Unlimited if we need another shed! Great Value!

Andrew Heeter from Fallston, MD

Well first off Mark & Willie drove 4 hours to get here and when they did it had been raining for hours , these 2 guys unloaded truck & started at 7:30 am, in the rain & it was about 40* out, they had a 24x20 building up & roof on in less than 6 hours, they installed 3 windows, walk in door, trim & paint. I had a mishap with old garage & asked if they can use my garage door, no problem at all, they finished everything & cleaned up in the dark & still had a 4 hour drive home. I am extremely happy, Mark & Willie you two guys are great, my whole experience from drawings to ordering with John to building being complete was the greatest, Sheds Unlimited is #1 in my book.

robert boyd from Vernon nj

I would rate this shed a 5 star. but salesman never asked about rain gutter location on shed. Never thought about it untill shed came on site and now water has to run up hill.There the best in the bussiness on set-up and the mule is great also thanks again  Ryan Cole.

g.g. from Pa.

Wow, is all I can say. What a great company to do buisness with. The shed is excellent and you cant beat the price. Plus Chris was a master when it came to placing the shed exactly where I wanted it even took the time to level it even though I know that was my responsibility. Shed was here in 2 and a half weeks. Would definitely reccomended.

Prior to receiving an email from Sheds Unlimited asking if I would like to submit a review, I had already sent them an email stating what a great experience we had in purchasing our shed. My mom moved in with us and I needed the shed ASAP, and Austin was able to fit us in quickly. I ordered the shed over the phone after I saw it online . I spoke to Mark and he was very helpful and got the ordered placed asap, and he followed up with some instructions and such. The shed was delivered by Nate - and this guy makes what is probably a hard job look easy. The unloading, moving , and placement of the shed by Nate was something to watch. This team, and I am sure there are others, are great to work with. And the shed looks beautiful and is well constructed.

Ed W from Wernersville PA

All the people at shed unlimited are great people seeing the shed are asking if I plan to live in the shed, it looks better than their house. I have only one complaint. The weather vane was not set with North pointing North and my wife will not let me climb on the roof to correct it.

William Evans from Ocean View DE

I just received my large garage shed 12x40! It was excellent customer service from Austin and best price and the the best quality! Excellent delivery and installation! I highly recommend !

Elsa from North NJ

My shed is wonderful just as I ordered it! The whole experience was a delight. Sheds unlimited staff is organized friendly and helpful. Every inquiry was answered quickly and completely by a friendly voice. My shed was delivered even though we were in the middle of a very heavy rain storm. From the time of truck pulling up to truck leaving was only 45 minutes. Driver was excellent just like the rest of my experience. I looked other places and did not have near as pleasant experience or feel I was getting as good of a product as I did at sheds unlimited. Price was better with better look and quality.

Michael from Red Lion, PA

Absolutely Beautiful !!! Perfect and Best Prices !!

Maryellen from New Winsor NY
