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.

Additionally, Behm Design guarantees all garage plans acceptable by your building department for successful building permit review/approval, within the design parameters listed below, for the use intended, within the scope of information provided.

We design our garage plans to be useable in most US locations and not for areas with extreme environmental conditions Note: The International Residential Code  is the basis for most US states' building codes. Complying with the IRC is, in most cases, complying with your state's building code.

Design Parameters:

  •  International Residential Code (IRC) Compliance
  • Assumed maximum 100 mph wind, 3 second gust
    (note: a few of the older plans were designed for 85 mph wind)
  • Assumed moderate wind exposure "B"
  • Most designs prescriptively code compliant
  • Assumed basically flat building site
  • Assumed stable, durable soil conditions
  • Assumed maximum seismic category C risk
  • Maximum 30 #/sf snow load

Exceptions: Our Guarantee does not apply in the following circumstance

  • Topography, substandard soils, or drainage problems require design modifications
  • Snow, wind, seismic conditions require structural and drawing modifications
  • If garage plans  have been modified in any way
  • If state requires compliance with a state-specific energy code (such data may be added as required)
  • Where local building authority requires professional stamp or seal of submitted plans (most do not but you should verify)

Behm design will provide immediate clarification or correction, if needed, for the garage plans, within the scope of information presented. The plans may be returned for a full refund if they do not meet our guarantee, as stated, within 1 year of purchase date. Behm Design shall be liable for no more than the original purchase price of the plans provided.

Important Notes for Our Customers

It is important, before ordering garage plans, to check with your local Building Official and Zoning Dept. for requirements and restrictions regarding permit submittal for your proposed construction. You will need a site plan and, possibly, other information, in addition to the garage plan, for getting a building permit. Some states and localities may require the professional review and stamp of a licensed Engineer or Architect for all work drawings. California, Florida, New York, Washington and other coastal states may have beyond "normal" requirements for wind, seismic and snow conditions. Check with your local Building Official for local requirements.

Call Jay @ 1-800-210-6776 if you have questions regarding this guarantee.

Our garage plans packages and PDF downloads are sold for one (1) construction use only. Repetitive use of the plans is prohibited under current copyright laws unless specific written permission is provided by Behm Design.

Please check all relevant dimensions before ordering  Garage Plans.  It is also recommended that building permit be obtained before commencing with any construction activities, including foundation.

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
