Are you considering adding a timber frame garage? Do you dream of working from home? Now is your opportunity to do so, and “build up, not out” – at a scale that nests beautifully into any neighborhood or any lot. Create your office, studio, or workshop, and enjoy a convenient, private, and spacious one-bedroom home above in the Opossum Creek “Garage.”

Welcome colleagues and clients to your workspace, which is punctuated by the elegance of timber frame features, a covered deck area, and barn doors that open wide for airflow and light (or vehicles or oversized equipment, should you choose to use space as a garage).

You can welcome friends upstairs to your home. As they enter your home from the second-story deck, they will marvel at the open feel of the main living area. The space flows from a large U-shaped kitchen that opens into a dining area and great room, made more spacious by a cathedral ceiling and dormers. The single bedroom spans the width of the house and offers a cozy retreat at the end of your day.

Though the footprint is relatively small, potential storage spaces abound, thanks to thoughtful design and planning. Download the plans today and start your new combination of home and workspace. The plans include drawings, 3D renderings, and a timber list to ensure you get all the materials you need to cut and raise the frame of your new home.

  1. Brice,
    My sawmill can cut 16ft 6in would i need any timbers longer than this to build the opossum creek?

    Thanks David

  2. Yes, the plan has all the timbers pulled out, into individual drawings and dimensioned. There are 13 sheets in this drawing, they are sized for 24×36 sheets. You can get them printed at a local printer or office supply store.

  3. I was wonder the heights for the garage and the upstairs. I’m hoping the garage is at least 12feet tall.

  4. The garage downstairs is 10′ but, would be easy to add 2′ to the wall height the up. From the upstairs subfloor to the peak of the roof is just over 13′

  5. Hi Brice,
    How difficult would it be to turn the shed roof into a deck? My thought is to access the 2nd floor deck via a door through the living room.



  6. It can be turned into a deck. The key is to waterproof it correctly. I would look to some of the commercial flat roof systems.

  7. Could the downstairs be converted into living space with a kitchen with future use as a garage. Would also mean filling in garage door due to insulation/aesthetics.

  8. Yes, you can modify the downstairs to fit your needs, adding doors and windows for more light and options.

    What is the total height at the peak of the roof and wall height please? Our city code uses a “midpoint” of the roof pitch from the wall height to the peak for what they allow as a maximum height. Thank you!
