Barn style garage plans, like their barn house plan counterpart, present homeowners with a signature gambrel roof. It’s this gambrel roof that gives the garage plan the look and feel of a barn.
As one might expect, barn style garage plans look especially at home next to a barn style (sometimes called "Dutch Colonial" or "gambrel roof") house. Barn style garage plans may also complement a Farmhouse style home since the idea of barns and farmhouses tend to flow together in a logical way. Ultimately, it’s up to the opinion and judgement of the homeowner (and Homeowners Association, if applicable). If you feel a barn style garage will look good next to your house, go ahead and browse the below collection. If you find a plan you love, great! On the other hand, if you start to feel a different style would be more appropriate for your needs—fear not! At Dream Home Source we offer a wide assortment of garage plans—from modern 1 car designs to Craftsman plans that offer space for 3 cars and an RV. We do this because we understand every person has different tastes and circumstances to negotiate.
One possible circumstance to consider is whether or not you need a garage or a garage with attached apartment. A garage with attached apartment can be especially beneficial if you regularly house guests or suspect someone will need to move in with you—be it an adult child, a parent, niece, nephew, etc. A garage with apartment is also a great space to rent out to a local college student or young professional, assuming you want or need help paying off your mortgage (and, honestly, who doesn’t?)
Whether you’re building a new home (and garage) from scratch, or simply building a garage or garage with apartment next to a pre-existing home, you’re sure to find a design that meets your requirements in the collection below, or in our complete collection of Garage Plans.
