Beautiful Sheds and Garages that Provide Living Space

You need more Space for Life but adding onto the house will cost a fortune and a customized garage also carries a large price tag. With a Prefab Garage that includes space for an apartment, you get the storage space you need plus a place to call home. We have helped numerous customers build a space to store their vehicles along with a small apartment for living space. Here we offer ten ideas for a Prefab Shed or Garage with Apartment Space that could serve as a guest house, Air BnB, in-law quarters, or a granny pod.

A Small Apartment in a Shed

If you love Tiny Living, this Small Apartment Shed will make your mouth water! The inside featured a bathroom, kitchen with an apartment-sized fridge, a sitting area, and a beautiful loft area for sleeping. It was created for a small living space that had a touch of modern class.

One quick note: This Apartment in a Shed was built by the Sheds Unlimited Team in 2016. Since that, we have discontinued our line of small apartment sheds and tiny homes. But nothing would keep you from buying a shed shell just like this, and doing all the interior work on your own. You will have a beautiful masterpiece that you can admire and enjoy for years to come. 

This Portable Apartment Shed is built from our Premier Portable Garden Sheds.

A Bed and Breakfast in a Shed

When Susan of Yorktown, VA bought this two-story shed, her plan was a Bed and Breakfast in the second floor. This Two Story Barn Shed sports a lot of space on the second floor. It features a wide-open area that could serve as a small suite for an Air BnB Guest House and would not cost a lot to get into operation. You could even create a Two Story Barn with an exterior entrance and a deck to the second floor then have a Prefab Garage with a small Apartment Space.

A Beach House Home in a Shed

Your next Beach House could be a Prefab Shed or Garage that serves as a living space. Tom R needed more sleeping space next to his Beach House in Moon, VA. He bought a Two Story Workshop Shed from our manufacturing facility in Lancaster, PA, and then he set about to finish the interior himself.

The final product features a beautiful sleeping and sitting area on the first floor. Then up the stairs and around the corner you will find bunk beds and another bed with plenty of extra space to run around. The two-story shed apartment was ordered with two shed dormers to make it quite roomy on the second floor. 

A Modular Building Apartment

This is an amazing piece of work inside a modular double-wide garage from Sheds Unlimited. The customer bought the double-wide building and finished the interior for a lovely home-sweet-home. Notices the extra windows above the bed bringing in plenty of light into this beautiful space.

A Car Garage with a Man Cave

In The City of Brotherly Love, you’ll find this two-story garage where Don has created his own Garage Man Cave. A place to store and play with his toy train collection and a second floor that is big enough for an apartment, serving as his Man Cave. See another two-story garage which Rebecca turned into a business space.

The Garage with Apartment Space has two large ten-foot dormers to create plenty of space and plenty of light in this Man Cave in Philadelphia. This Prefab Garage could also serve as a Guest House to run a BandB or a Granny Pod for Grandma or Grandpa in the final years. 

Two Car Garage with Apartment Space

Honestly, we’re not sure what Steve O from Ipswich MA was planning to do with his two-car garage building, but taking a look at the photos, it would make a lovely 2 car garage with apartment space. The large dormers and the very nice sized windows would make a lovely place for a small backyard apartment or Bed and Breakfast.

This prefab car garage was custom built in our shed and garage building facility in PA. We loaded all the parts onto a trailer and drove to MA to setup this two car garage. The blue siding on this garage was a custom color and the large windows were also a custom order.

Legacy Garage with Apartment Space and Deck

This Legacy Two Story Garage with Apartment space might look a bit plain, but the deck coming from the second floor gives Randy easy access to the loft/attic area.

Here you have an idea for a garage with space to store stuff on the first floor, and a space for an apartment, a man cave or she shed on the second! This building could give you even more space for an apartment with added Shed Dormers that would help create a very wide open space upstairs. 

A Luxury Garage with an Apartment

This is no normal Amish Built Prefab Garage, to say the least! Most prefab car garages built-in PA are quite basic in nature. But when Fred from Upstate NY came with a request for a garage, it was many revisions and two years later before the project was actually completed!

While we love the way it looks, there are things on this GARAGE WITH APARTMENT SPACE that Sheds Unlimited would not do again. But we could build a Luxury Prefab Garage with Apartment Space that could serve as a granny pod, extra apartment or bed and breakfast. 

Man Cave Garage with Loft Apartment Space

This garage owner took a unique approach to create extra living space in his garage. He created two bays for cars and trucks to park and then installed a wall between the third bay area. In what could have been the third bay, the owner insulated and finished the interior.

Although he did not create an apartment in this garage, the possibilities of doing so are endless. You could even use two of the bays for living space and one for a vehicle. This garage, along with each shed and garage on this page (and many others) were custom designed and built our the Sheds Unlimited team and setup in PA, NY, NJ, CT, MA, NH, MD, VA, DE, WV and beyond. 

Large Garage with Apartment Space

Another unique garage idea that includes living space and much more. Notice the roof fancies a solar system and the back part of the prefabricated garage a lean-to for more space.

The possibilities with this Large Garage are countless. Use the back area for a small game room or man cave. The second floor would be a great apartment or man cave and provide space for an Air BnB, guest chamber or a permanent home. You could live on the second floor and store stuff downstairs.
