Measuring 12′ x 20′, The Craftsman Detached One-Car Garage is a small, easy-to-permit garage plan.

Featuring a single gable roof, several large windows along the side and back and a single entrance with a small awning roof and brackets.

With only 200 SF of interior floor space, this 12 wide x 20′ deep detached garage plan is perfect if you’re looking for something small or potentially a studio. This is an ideal one-car garage plan if you’re in a more challenging municipality like Vancouver or Toronto

Quick Facts

Craftsman – 12′ x 20′ Detached One-Car Garage

The Exterior:

Craftsman – 12′ x 20′ Detached One-Car Garage

The Craftsman Detached One-Car Garage is part of the Craftsman Collection and is a staff favorite. Starting with the exterior fascia and heavy wooden trim, classic craftsman details articulate a flavor of nostalgia you’d expect to find on a well-appointed west coast home.

Complete with painted skirting & head trim, a well-rounded architectural trim package covers everything you’ll need for a small garage you can be proud of.

The asphalt shingle roofing over the engineered truss roof is quick and easy to build and will last a medieval lifetime.

The small overhead attic offers potential storage space, so a hatch is specified. With 21″ roof overhangs and a gravel rock pit for your two-pipe drainage system, this one-car garage fits perfectly on any Vancouver building lot.

It will easily slide through the permit application process of any large or small municipality.

The Interior:

On the interior, you have a painted drywall finish with one parking stall measuring 18′-8″ deep x 10′-8″ wide.

Access to the garage comes from a dedicated garage entrance off a 36″ wide side entrance door or through the 8′ wide by 7′ tall rolling overhead garage door.

The Craftsman One-Car Garage has a finished floor-to-ceiling height of 9′-0″, thus leaving some room to amend the plans to an 8′ tall overhead door if you so choose.

Windows are placed at 42″ above the concrete floor, allowing a workbench or freezer to fit in nicely beneath.

Ceiling-mounted compact fluorescent lights are typical inside, with several wall receptacles specified off of a 60 AMP electrical sub-panel.

  1. Pat

    I’m a pretty handy guy, so I took on this project myself to save money. The plans where easy to read with the help of a friend. I was able to build it on my own with just a bit of help, it took longer then expected, but looks great. My wife loves it (that’s all that matters lol).

  2. Amar

    It’s a one car garage, but feels more like an oversized shed. It’s small, I didn’t want to take up to much of my yard but am regretting not getting a bigger one.
