Get the most out of your new detached garage by going jumbo! At Behm Design, we offer seven different jumbo garage plans to meet your needs. These jumbo garage designs are huge – in fact, some can even fit an automobile lift inside. Jumbo garages are an excellent option for homeowners looking for extra storage space for cars, gear, etc. They are the perfect choice for homes that don’t have basements and don’t have much storage space within the house. They are also an excellent choice for homeowners with multiple cars.

Jumbo garages also work well for homeowners who own businesses such as a car repair shop or woodworking studio or are looking for a space for their hobbies. Can you imagine the game room or home gym you could fit in one of these spaces? As you browse garage plans and make decisions about your future space, think about the benefits of going jumbo!

Jumbo Garage Designs and More Space

First, jumbo garages simply provide you with more space. Adding a one- or two-car detached garage can boost your space, but going with a jumbo plan will add a significant amount of square footage to your property. Even if you only have one or two cars, a jumbo garage gives you the combination of parking space and storage space. As you consider which size garage you want, think about what you plan to put in the garage and the realistic amount of space you need. There’s nothing worse than building a new detached garage on your property only to realize that it’s actually too small!

More Options for Jumbo Garage Designs

A jumbo garage design also gives homeowners more options for how they use the space. You can use a jumbo garage for so much more than just parking cars or storing old boxes. Whether you use the space for your hobby or your business, the options are truly endless. Here are some ideas to get the brainstorming started!

Jumbo Garage Ideas

  • Auto shop: Do you enjoy working on cars? Some of our jumbo garage designs can fit an auto forklift. Whether you like working on your cars or own a car shop, having the space to fix vehicles on your own property is key.

  • Storage: A jumbo garage will give you ample storage. Many homes don’t contain adequate storage space, which can be an issue, especially for growing families. Instead of overfilling closets inside the house, add built-in storage areas to your new garage to keep things organized.

  • Home Gym: During the COVID-19 pandemic, many people canceled their gym memberships and began working out at home. Even though most gyms and workout studios are open and running again, many people have yet to return. Finding space to work out inside the home can be a challenge, but imagine having an entire detached garage as your gym!

  • Workshop: Do you love to tinker around in the woodshop? Any woodworker knows that this type of work takes a lot of space. Woodworking equipment is large and won’t fit inside your living room! A detached garage gives you the space to store and use equipment, and it doesn’t matter if you make a mess!

  • Game room: A detached garage is a perfect spot for kids and adults alike to escape and have fun! A jumbo garage has room for everything needed to make a great game room, including a big-screen TV, comfortable seating, pool table, bar, arcade games, and more! Get the relaxing space you’ve always wanted.

  • Office: No matter what line of work you are in, a detached garage is an excellent spot for a home office for those who work remotely. Enjoy the peace and quiet of having a space separate from the main home. Also, if you meet with clients, it’s nice to have an area separate from your living space to have them over.

Increased Value

One of the best reasons to invest in a jumbo garage is that it can significantly increase the value of your home. The added square footage alone will increase the appraised value of your home. If you are looking to sell your home in the near future, be sure to talk to your realtor about highlighting your jumbo garage on the listing. The more features you add to your garage, the better. For example, adding mini-split units to cool and heat your garage is a great investment that allows you to use the garage comfortably all year long. Some garage owners even invest in heated floors! Whatever you decide to do with your garage, know that you will see a positive return in the future should you decide to sell your property.

At Behm Design, we offer jumbo garage designs in a variety of styles and sizes. Each plan contains 12-foot walls, oversized garage doors, and plenty of floor space. Before selecting plans and getting started, be sure to contact your local planning department and HOA to make sure there aren’t any rules or regulations preventing you from adding a jumbo garage to your property.
