How to use the Garage Plans by TRC Garage Plans Search Tool

With the garage plans search tool you can search by any combination of the following garage attributes:

      • Number of Cars
      • Maximum Width
      • Maximum Depth
      • Living Space
      • Number of Levels
      • Storage Space
      • Workshop
      • RV Storage
      • Carport
      • Name of Garage
You can select just one or any combination of the search criteria based on your garage needs. If you have a specific number of stalls you want to have in your garage, pull down the Number of Cars drop-down box and click on 1, 2, 3 or 4. That will restrict your search to one car garage plans, two car garage plans, three car garage plans or four car garage plans respectively. If you don't care how many stalls the garage has just leave the drop-down box alone and don't make a selection.

In some cases you will have a limit on the width or depth of the garage you plan on building. It might be due to the size of the lot you are building on or it might be due to government regulations. Whatever the reason, just pull down the Maximum Width or Maximum Depth pulldown box and select the limited number of feet you have available to build in. The Maximum Width and Maximum Depth pulldown boxes are in increments of 2'. You can select either one of the boxes or both of them. If you don't have any size limitations you can just leave the boxes unselected. For example, say you only have a 30' wide space in which to build your garage. In that case you would select the Maximum Width pull-down box, scroll down to 30' and click that entry in the box. Select any other criteria you want to set then click on the Search button. In another example, if your site limited you to a depth of 39.5', you would select the next lower increment in the Maximum Depth pull-down box, in this case 38'. Select any other criteria you want then click the Search button.

There are three options you can choose from with the Living Space selection drop-down box, None, Apartment and Loft. If you don't care whether the garage plans you search for have living quarters or not, then just leave the drop-down box unselected. In some cases you might choose to leave an apartment area unfinished, or you might choose to finish a loft into an apartment. If that is the case then you should probably leave the box unselected and the search will return you all possible options including both apartments and lofts. Once you have made your selection in the Living Space drop-down box and selected any other applicable options, simply click the Search button and you will get back the garage plans that meet your needs.

You can also search based on the name of the garage. If you have been here before and seen a garage plan you liked, you might remember the name of the garage. Simply type the name of the garage in the Garage Name box and click the Search button. Your results will show up in the search results area under the search criteria box.

Introduction to My Garage Plans

My Garage Plans Staff
Hi there! You might be wondering why there is another site online offering garage plans for sale? During an economic meltdown? While we are undergoing one of the biggest re-sets in the housing market ever?

Well we happen to think there is going to be a nice rebound in the housing market over time and things will eventually get back to normal. But still, why another ecommerce site selling garage plans? Not because there aren't some really great plans out there already. Certainly not because the world needs another ecommerce site. No, the reason we are doing this is because we think most of the other sites offering garage plans make you do to much work to find what you are looking for. Why should you have to look through dozens of plans trying to find what you want when it can be narrowed down by setting a few simple criteria. You probably already have a pretty good idea of what you want, the number of stalls in your garage, whether or not you want some extra living space or whether you just need a simple carport. So why spend time having to filter through so many other plans that just don't do it for you? It just doesn't make any sense.

What you will find here is an intuitive site with an easy to use Garage Plans Search Tool that will help you find what you want without the hassle. If we don't have the garage plan you are looking for you will know it in a matter of seconds. An ecommerce site shouldn't be set up to make you suffer through an ordeal just to find out they don't have any garage plans that suit your fancy. Our intention is to add more plans over the coming months so you have a better selection of plans to choose from, but we will never stray from our mission to make your search as simple as possible.

You will also find other useful information to help you with your garage building project, whether or not you choose to buy your garage plan from us. Undertaking a project of this magnitude is going to be time consuming and frustrating at times, so hopefully you will find some things here to make your life easier. Feel free to use whatever you need from our article pages and How To papers. To get started, take a look at the 3 How To Buy Garage Plans articles. There is some great information to help you navigate your way through the morass of building permits and other arcane requirements you will encounter while building your garage.
