Creatively designed for a weekend retreat, a guest cottage or a mother-in-law suite, this garage apartment plan is well suited for comfortable living. Furthermore, with the living areas designed on one level and situated next to the garage, this floor plan also works well for the elderly and others challenged by stairs. An overhead door opens to the 1-car garage outfitted with two convenient storage spaces (277 square feet). Inside, the living area and kitchen come together creating an open floor plan. A full bath and walk-in closet compliment the bedroom. Though only 664 square feet, the living quarters are practical and functional. Upstairs, a bonus room (472 square feet) is flexible to suite a variety of needs. Use it for seasonal storage or basement and attic overflow from the main home, or finish it as an office, bedroom, workout area or something else you desire. Designed like a cottage, the exterior showcases a relaxing covered front porch (284 square feet) topped with handsome dormer windows for stylish street appeal. Stylish and functional, this carriage house plan with loft and 1-car garage appeals to a wide audience of buyers.
