Carriage House Plans Are Back!
Make no mistake, carriage house plans-also known as garage apartment plans-are back in vogue. Once a popular fixture in American backyards, carriage house plans fell out of style in the late '50's and 60's. These days, however, garages with living space are enjoying a newfound popularity - and for good reason. As the economy continues to roller coaster, many homeowners find themselves with friends and family in need of a place to lay their head. Carriage house designs serve as an ideal solution for temporary or long-term guests by giving all involved enough breathing room to keep the peace.
Additionally, many homeowners now consider carriage house plans to be a wise investment. Not only do these designs provide a simpler way to increase the square-footage of your home, they're also often viewed as a desirable and valuable feature by prospective buyers. Even if you have no future plans to sell your home, carriage house designs have the potential to open a new stream of income as a rental unit.
