THE Maple garage was inspired during a train ride. Rail buildings, especially those from the golden age of the iron horse are so beautiful in their functionality. This particular building was next to a track near the main depot. We can only imagine what it might be. Switching house? Conductor's lounge? Speakeasy? Whatever it is the form and style were beautiful. We have taken the concept and created something even more versatile. Perhaps you simply need a garage and 384sf apartment on your property. Or maybe you need to cleverly disguise your auto shop within a neighborhood. Downstairs can service one car at a time while your secretary checks out rail schedules and Prada purses upstairs.
If you like a little more industrial look, consider using the alternate elevation. We used the original inspiration's decor, brick siding and metal roof. A metal staircase would complete the outfit.
This plan is sold with a slab style foundation included. If you need to modify to a suspended garage, please contact an engineer local to your area.
All plans include four elevations, floor plans, foundation plans, at least two building sections, framing plans for the second floor and/or roof, and notes and construction details. This is everything you will need to build, but may not be everything you need to get a permit. Check with your local jurisdiction. Electrical layouts, cabinet elevations and engineering are not included.
