For Your Garage


Mr. Behm, I want to say thanks for the garage plans. It only took about two hours for the permit review. With the materials list the next phase will be estimating costs to build the garage...Thank you very much..D.P.


Thank you so very much Jay, I,ll start estimating my garage building costs and see what comes up. What a great service and product you have. The garage plans are very nice and presented well on your website. Thanks again for your help getting started....B.W.

Jay, just a short note - I built one of your garage plans last spring and it came out fantastic! We have strict building codes around here but our inspector found no flaws in the plans, design nor construction. I love my new garage-shop and the design....G.M.

"Jay - Thought you might want to see how your plans turned out. We enjoyed working with your plans and build the garage just as specified except for adding a cupola. We believe it really turned out well and appreciate your help.
Best regards, Bob S., VA "
"Dear Behm Design,
Your design of this garage is exceptional! The building inspector said it was the best garage he has seen to date. We love it. Here are some pictures for your use. Thanks again for designing such a nice garage! George & Kerri P. in NY "

"Just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks for the terrific garage plans. I ordered plan #975-5 and made it match my house with the veneer. Sending you a picture to let you see the final results. Thanks again. Kirk Senior Power Marketer "
"Hi Jay, Hope all is well with you. We thought we would share some photos of our well underway 2280-4 garage / apartment in North Georgia. We are now roughing in the electrical, HVAC and plumbing upstairs. Of course, a rear deck will be in place before stepping out back! Many Thanks,
Jim & Sharon S. "

"Hi Jay, We purchased one of your garage plans about 4 years ago and my husband just loves his shop. We recommend you to everyone who asked about it. You made the permitting, ordering of materials and construction so easy. ..... I’ve attached a construction photo. We changed the roof to match our house.
Patti S. WA CADD Manager,I"

"Jay, Photos as requested. The village of Pleasant Prairie,WI took 2 minutes to inspect the final product and stated how good it looked. And everybody that sees it thinks it's great. Thanks for the great plans. The only thing I varied on was I put vaulted trusses on the single garage door end and put in a full wall instead of the five footers.
Mike R., WI"

"Hi Jay, I just thought I'd let you know that we finished the garage this year. We had to make a couple of changes to it, due to the fact that we wanted to fit our travel trailer in it so had to raise the walls 4 feet, so consequently our county building inspector wouldn't let us have 3 doors unless we added on another 4 feet to the side of the shop. We didn't want to do that because the foundation was already poured, so we opted for 2 - 10' x 12' doors instead. I think you'll agree, it turned out very nice. Thanks for the wonderful plans on your website and for the assistance in this project. I have attached a picture.
Best Regards, Marsha & Bob F., OR"
I recently finished building your Garage Plan 672-4. I had some prior construction and framing experience but this was my first solo project. ..... Your plans made the project very easy. Getting the building permit, securing bids from concrete contractors, ordering trusses, purchasing materials, and framing the garage all went smoothly thanks to your easy-to-follow blueprints. Having a professional design plan available gave me confidence at every step. I get lots of compliments from friends and neighbors, and most importantly, my wife, about our new garage! Thanks for providing professional plans at a great price!

As you can see from the pictures, I went with the 16-foot garage door option to maximize shop space and I moved the access door to the front for improved security. All told I spent a little over $12,500...I did all the work myself with a little help from friends. Best regards, D.S."

I used Hardie Board siding on the outside and used a Wayne-Dalton garage door.
Thanks for the great plans, everyone that sees the garage simply loves it . Feel free to post these pictures… Thanks,

Joe P. in VA built Plan #572-9

"Hello Jay, As I was wrapping up the blueprints for the garage plans I purchased from you in 2005 ( Title: 864-1 ), I thought I'd send you a note thanking you for the great design. We began the construction in February 2006 and the project was "completed" the following January.

I had most of the big stuff contracted out while I did the insulation, sheetrock, painting, electrical, and finish work. The plans were easy to follow and the finished structure is what I've always dreamed of having - a garage/shop for my 1931 Ford. I've attached a couple of photos.
Again, thanks for a great design!

Regards, Rick

"Dear Jay,
The plans were excellent. Builders had no issues whatsoever and liked working on this project. We moved the stairs to the other side of the building and went with hardyplank on the outside.... We had to make modifications for local hurricane code, very easy, and obtained a CO with no problem. I will highly recommend your plans to anyone. They really are great value for money. Thank you Jay!
Julian C. "

Here is my finished two story workshop. I made just a few modifications to the plans. I opened up the stair case and removed one of the doors so that both floors could be used as a workshop. The plans where very detailed and I had no problems with permitting and construction. I would recommend your plans to anyone looking to build a garage.
Thanks, Keith L. "

Keith L. built plan #867-1 to match his existing home

"I purchased plan #1512-1 last year and here are the results. I started excavation August 2004. I did make some modifications to the original plans. I had (2) 36 foot laminated roof truss's made so I have no center supporting wall or columns between the low bay and high bay area. ... The rest of the work has been done by myself, my son, a very good friend who is 72 years old, his son and several dedicated friends. It took 12 guys to push up the 14' x 40' wall on the high bay side that was fully constructed on the ground. The blueprints were very easy to follow and right on the money, with materials needed, layouts, measurements, helpful pointers, just perfect. By the way this is my first attempt at a project like this. I'm extremely pleased with the outcome and very lucky I found your web site. Thanks so much."

Richard R. built the #1512-1 with some modifications

"Jay, I was very happy with the plans (952-2) you provided for my unattached garage/shop. I only made a few changes to better suit my needs and location. I installed a single large garage door and changed the roof pitch to 6/12 ..... No problems with permiting and I would definitely use your services again if needed. I included a photo that you are welcome to use..... ....I built the entire garage all by myself with the exception of pouring the floor and installing the overhead garage door......My only helper was my trusty Kubota tractor that I used to tip up the walls and put up the trusses. Thanks

LGS in WA."

A Modified Plan #952-2 to match existing home
"Mr. Behm
Some time ago, we purchased one of your garage plans. We did some changes to the dormer so that it would better match the style of our house, but basically it is the same as your plan. Thought you would like a picture of how it turned out. We are very pleased.

Hi Jay -
 I have attached my picture of my new garage (your plan No. 856-1) it came out great! The thorough garage plans were easily approved in my county and city (an they have strict standards for design plans) Thank you...M.C. OH

 Hey Jay I want to tell you of what great value the garage plans were for us. Our garage was built in the fall of 2009. I went the summer house a few days ago and it was a perfect New England coast sumer days and the new garage looked really great!

Jay, the garage plan you sent me were just right! I got a very accurate building quote and I could check contractor's progress and verify that he followed the plans. The low price of the garage plans was perfect for my project and there were no disagreements. The plans answered all the questions that would come up - 'just build it like it shows in the plan'. So, thanks again!...R.M, NY
