The Craftsman 12′ x 20′ Detached One-Car Garage

Measuring 12′ x 20′, The Craftsman 12′ x 20′ Detached One-Car Garage is a small easy to permit garage plan.

The Exterior

The Craftsman 12′ x 20′ Detached One-Car Garage is a craftsman styled staff favorite. Starting with the exterior fascia and heavy wooden trim, classic craftsman details articulate a flavor of nostalgia that you’d expect to find on a well appointed west coast home. Complete with painted skirting & head trim, a well rounded architectural trim package covers everything you’ll need for a small garage you can be proud of.

The asphalt shingle roofing over the engineered truss roof is quick and easy to build and will last a medieval lifetime. The small attic overhead offers some potential storage space so a hatch is specified. With 21″ roof overhangs and a gravel rock pit for your two-pipe drainage system, this one-car garage fits perfectly on any Vancouver building lot. It will easily slide through the permit application process of any large or small municipality.

The Interior

On the interior, you have a painted drywall finish with one parking stall measuring 18′-8″ deep x 10′-8″ wide. Access to the garage comes from a dedicated garage entrance off a 36″ wide side entrance door or through the 8′ wide by 7′ tall rolling overhead garage door.

The Craftsman 12′ x 20′ Detached One-Car Garage has a finished floor to ceiling height of 9′-0″, thus leaving some room to amend the plans to an 8′ tall overhead door if you so choose. Windows are placed at 42″ above the concrete floor making a workbench or freezer can be made to fit in nicely beneath. Ceiling mounted compact fluorescent lights are typical inside with several wall receptacles specified off of a 60 AMP electrical sub-panel.

    I’m a pretty handy guy, so I took on this project myself to save money. The plans where easy to read with the help of a friend. I was able to build it on my own with just a bit of help, it took longer then expected, but looks great. My wife loves it (that’s all that matters lol).

    It’s a one car garage, but feels more like an oversized shed. It’s small, I didn’t want to take up to much of my yard but am regretting not getting a bigger one.
