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.

Very nice construction and looks like it was built with the house. Delivery went well with a very little damage to the grass. Would easily recommend SHed Unlimited to anyone wanting a very good value.

John from Frederick MD

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!

Marc Spiotta from Morristown, NJ

Just had my shed delivered right on time by Nate. It really looks great inside and out and I'm very happy with the end product! Thanks to Kyle and the sales team for all of their phone and email communications, advice and patience along the entire process. Will send you some pics in a few weeks once I have furnished! -Nick

Nick from Mullica Hill, NJ

Best price I could find by far. The shed dealer 10 minutes from my house was 1500 more for the same size. Shed was delivered on time and looks amazing.

Phil loch from Danbury Connecticut

The price of the shed was much lower than other places we checked, while the quality was much higher. The customer service was extremely helpful during the ordering process too. I would strongly recommend Sheds Unlimited - we are happy we did.

Ryan from York, PA

We recently had a two car garage installed. The two guys from Sheds unlimited, Gideon and Mark were unbelievable! They worked so hard and had the garage up in one day. They were also super nice and easy to work with. John, who we dealt with during the design process was also great. Couldn't recommend them highly enough. Our garage is beautiful.

Vicente and Gillian Frontinan from Medford, MA

I just wanted to express how pleased my husband and I are with the shed we received yesterday.
Not only was the shed EXACTLY what we expected, but the entire experience in dealing with sheds unlimited was a pleasure. It has unfortunately become a rare occurrence to do business with honest, reliable and FRIENDLY people. We truly appreciate the reminder that there are people out there who operate this way!

Thank you Very Much.

Tamara and James - Board Channel, NY

I am extremely please with my 8X18 mini barn shed. The quality is superior to local shed companies and for a much better price. The two gentleman that delivered my shed went above and beyond to make sure the shed was perfect. They touched up the paint and cleaned any dirt from delivery.

Chris C. from East Moriches, NY

From our initial call to describe our criteria for our new shed (Ben Shue), to our notification and scheduling of our delivery (Austin Beachy) and finally the delivery and placement of our new shed (Nate)....we are very tickled with the quality of our purchase and the courteous and professional nature shown by Sheds Unlimited.....Thank you!

C Shoemaker from NJ

If you get your shed or garage from anywhere else, your not gonna be happy! Sheds Unlimited is the only company that I would deal with. I had them come to my house and build me (in 3 days!) THEE most beautiful, (made to my specs) 24x32 garage with two 24' dormers upstairs. Even THEY were so impressed with their work, it's featured in their "Legacy" line of Garages. Later, I ordered an adorable Chicken Coop. I couldn't be happier! Their craftsmanship is second to none, they are on time, polite and totally professional. You will not find this from your local builder! Thank you SO much!!
