Carriage House Plans
About Carriage House Plans & Carriage House Floor Plans...
Historically, carriage houses were once known as the out buildings of large estates where carriages were stored. Today, Carriage house plans are typically detached garages with upper level living space. Available in a wide variety of styles and sizes, carriage home plans offer a variable number of garage bays and range in living square footage. Typically, carriage house plans are two levels and feature storage for two or three cars on the ground level with living quarters above. However, not all carriage home plans are two levels. Some plans are only one level featuring a garage area on one side of the home and living quarters on the other resembling a cottage with an attached garage. Due to their small and efficient nature, carriage house plans are another alternative for Cottage and Cabin house plans and some Vacation home plans.
Closely related to garage apartment plans, carriage house designs provide parking and compact yet comfortable living quarters. The apartment typically consists of one or two bedrooms and baths and a combined cooking and living area providing flexible living space. Accommodations are modest, but carriage house floor plans work well for a guest suite, an in-law retreat or living quarters for a nanny. Also, they can serve as an office for a home-based business, a workshop or studio or take on the role of a secondary residence. Furthermore, these garage apartments can be used as additional parking for your family while serving as a source of income. It is not uncommon to rent out the second floor living quarters to a college student or other singles. One-story versions are ideal for aging relatives who prefer the freedom of independent living, but need to be close to those who can care for them if necessary. Flexible and well suited for a broad range of needs, a carriage house is a valuable addition to any home or other piece of property.
