"..Built the garage this spring and it turned out fantastic. Building codes here are rather strict, but the inspector did not find a single flaw in design or construction. I love the design and my new shop/garage." -Gerald M.
How To Visualize Your New Garage
by Jay Behm - Here's a trick to visualize your new garage at the building site - before you even buy the plans. I learned this back in school ..how to put your building right into your building site by tricking your vision..very low tech...but works well. Once you get the hang of it you can compare different garages and how they fit in with the property and existing buildings.
Step 1: Print out the "catalog page" image of the particular garage plan you're considering (usually, just place curser over the image, right click, then left click to print):
Step 2: Cut out the image of the garage with X-acto knife or scissors and leave a little extra at the bottom of the garage image. You can attach some tape to make a handle.
Step 3: Looking at the site/area you want the building to be hold the cutout image in your field of vision and line of sight. If you close one eye you can easily see the garage cutout image against the background . Then just move the cutout closer or further from your eye to get in proportion or scale to the background. Closing one eye eliminates the perspective perception and its distortion. You must close one eye for this to work ....Now you can see the building in it's future location. You will likely need to move around the site and try to imagine where the vantage point of the garage illustration is so it will look more realistic. I just took this picture with a Nikon Coolpix in one hand - it looks very much like the one-eyed view (because a camera has only one eye). Here's what it looks like:

Hi Jay -
Attached is a photo of my garage (#856-1), which turned out great. The plans were thorough and made approval in my city and county (which has a strict set of design standards) much easier....Thank you.... M. C., OH
Jay, I meant to tell you much earlier what a great value your plans are. This garage was constructed late fall of '09. I was at the house the other day and it happened to be one of those perfect coastal New England summer days. The garage looked great. .........Thank you, J.W.
Jay, your plan was right on the money. I was able to get an accurate quote and was able to check up on the contractor to make sure it was being built by the specs. The low cost spent on the plan made whole project go smoother. No potential disagreements. Every time there was a question I would just say, “build it just like the plan says” Thanks again !
