If you don’t have much space to build out, you need to build up. With the Opossum Creek Garage, you have the luxury of a roomy garage and work area with a convenient and spacious one bedroom home. This design is perfect for a small lot or property that has a limited usable building area.
This unique plan features a ground level garage and work area that’s topped with an upper living space. The main level has plenty of room for a garage, a workshop, studio or even an office or retail space. There are barn doors on both the end and side of the building, making access easy for oversized equipment or vehicles.
There’s a wide, covered deck adjacent to the side of the first floor that’s perfect for relaxing and entertaining. It’s covered with a shed roof that’s supported by rustic posts and bracing.
On the opposite side of the house, access to the second floor is provided by a wide return staircase and landing that leads to a second story deck. This deck could potentially provide a roof for a future main level deck.
Entering the great room from the deck, you’ll find a large U-shaped kitchen that has plenty of space for the most discerning chef and a spacious dining and seating area. This space has a wide, airy feel with a cathedral ceiling and dormers to expand the living space.
The bedroom spans the width of one end of the house and is conveniently located next to the bathroom. There’s plenty of potential storage under the eaves in this cozy bedroom, and more in the eaves at the kitchen end of the house.
The bathroom is roomy and conveniently located near the door. This makes it handy for those on the deck or down in the main floor workspace. It has a corner shower to maximize floor space and has plenty of room to add your own storage.
