about us

The Just Garage Plans website is owned and operated by Residential Design Services, Inc. (RDS), a small, privately held company located in St. Louis, Missouri. After working in the stock plan industry for over nine years, Mike Whelan established RDS in 1996.

With over 20 years of home design and construction experience, RDS has developed a portfolio of blueprints and construction drawings including garage plans, garage apartments, small vacation homes, ranch plans and two story house plans in a variety of sizes and styles. This site, however, is devoted exclusively to promoting all types of garage and shed plans.

Our garage plans and garage apartment plans have been very successful in the market place and it is interesting to hear what customers are using the plans for - almost anything you can imagine. The garage apartments, or carriage houses, are reportedly used for temporary housing while the main house is being built, in-law quarters, home offices, rental property and much more. Likewise, our customers have come up with a variety of uses for our standard garage plans including hobby storage, auto shops, workshops and additional storage just to name a few.

Encouraged by the popularity of our garage plans, we have invited other designers to promote their plans on this website as well in an effort to expand our garage offerings in size, shape, style and function. Our goal is to have one of the most comprehensive garage plan websites available for selecting just the right garage plan or building design for your needs. We feel your garage or shed is an extension of your residence and should reflect your taste, lifestyle and personality.
