Rear Entry Garage

The increasing need for narrow house designs has provided us a reason to utilize creative design solutions for our floor plans. Without compromising quality design, Donald Gardner Architects has several house plans that utilize a rear entry garage. These are perfect for those with narrow lots or in Traditional Neighborhood Design (TND) communities. With rear entry garages, you can maximize your space to achieve a very narrow design. An example of one of our rear entry house plan is the Sassafras, Plan 814. With over 2300 SF, it packs a lot in to a house that is only 28' 4" wide!

In addition to rear entry garages, we also have an increasing request for rear, side entry garage plans. These house plans are good for those building on a corner lot. When lot width isn't a big constraint, but accessing the garage from a side driveway that doesn't dominate the look of the exterior, our plan 1379, The Chaucer, is a beautiful design worth considering.

Modification Services to Create Your Dream Home

Of course, sometimes you will fall in love with a house plan that doesn't have the garage location you need. Our modification department can customize our floor plans to your exact specifications so the home you end up with is perfect for your needs. Modifying a home plan is easy and convenient with our architectural team that has more than 35 years of combined experience to guide you through the entire process.
