Your buyer doesn’t have to be Tim the Toolman to appreciate these plans with smart workshop spaces. After all, who wouldn’t appreciate more room in the garage, especially when it involves more light, benches, and multi-use areas like these?

Workshop with Separate Entrance


With its streamlined modern layout, this home gives families the spaces they want while eliminating outdated rooms. Take a look at the great room: by placing the fireplace on a side wall, the view is freed in back, and this room opens to the kitchen’s wide island. A buffering foyer gives privacy to the deluxe master suite, conveniently located on this floor (a good layout for aging in place). Upstairs, two additional bedrooms are joined by a library loft and a huge bonus room. Smart features include the den/bedroom 4 on the first floor, which would make a good office for remote work, and extra storage space in the garage, complete with a window and side entrance.

Work Bench and Storage Space


This inviting, flexible home has Craftsman styling with upscale features. Front and rear covered porches add usable outdoor living space. Inside, the vaulted, fireplace-warmed great room opens to the spacious island kitchen. The flex space near the front could be used as a home office, dining room, or playroom. Don't miss the well-equipped master suite or the shop area off the garage for projects and storage. Future space upstairs could be a playroom, extra bedroom, or just extra storage. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Serious Storage


A generous storage area in the garage provides plenty of space to store seasonal items or putter around. The home itself provides everything a small family needs to live comfortably, including a generous kitchen and spacious bedrooms. An upstairs rec room with a full bath and walk-in closet can double as a bedroom. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Many Uses for the Extra Space in the Garage


On this delightful and charming exterior, you’ll find a wraparound porch, a shed dormer, and eye-catching stone. Inside, the large and vaulted living room opens to the bayed dining nook and the kitchen beyond. A handy snack bar adds casual dining space, and lots of windows let light in. The two-car garage includes a large vaulted room with built-in cabinets and access to the porch, making it ideal for a shop, studio, hobby room, or office.
