  • About this Design

    Our Minnetonka Garage Apartment Plan continues our tradition of creating small, smart, live able spaces.  And this garage plan comes with the possibility of paying for itself.  The above garage apartment can be rented out or serve as a completely self sufficient Mother-In-Law Studio.


    The building form is inspired by Eastern Seaboard Shingle Style Homes featuring a dramatic gable roof line with deep overhangs and subtle plane changes.  Shed dormers punctuate the sides of the gable and provide additional space for the apartment above.


    The main floor is generously sized for three automobiles.  Upstairs is a completely self sufficient apartment which is creatively zoned to create spaces for kitchen, living, bed area, eating, bath and storage.  A perfect space for a young professional or for your active Grandma or Grandpa.  Alternatively the upper level floor plan could be modified to provide a perfect artist studio or office space.



    The Minnetonka Garage Apartment Plan comes with a garage slab on grade and foundation walls to frost footing depth.  The plan could easily be adapted to accommodate other lot configurations.
