ROCKVILLE CENTRE, N.Y. — Architect Donald J. Berg, author of 15 books on building and landscaping, has just designed plans for a new expandable garage to help solve home storage problems. The Oakville Garage Plans can be downloaded for free at “Are there too many cars and bikes in your driveway and too many boxes in your attic?” asks Berg. “Build the Oakville Garage to add value to your home and solve your storage problems once and for all.”

The Oakville Garage is 16 feet wide by 22, 24 or 28 feet deep. It’s big enough for a car, small truck or SUV with room for bicycles, garden tools and a workbench. There are pull-down stairs to a full loft for even more storage. The high and dry loft space is perfect for clothes and boxes of valuable papers and photos.

The plans include drawings for optional 12 foot wide shed-roof expansions on either side. You can build your garage for one, two or three cars, or have a combination of parking areas with a workshop, hobby shop, home office, studio or storage shed. “You can build your garage small now and expand it as your needs grow,” Berg adds.

The downloadable drawings are for sturdy but easy-to-build 2×6 stud wall construction. They include a complete material list so that you can get accurate quotes of your building cost.
