A Walk Through The Shelby

Everyone needs a space to call their own, whether that’s a studio, a workshop or a spare garage that you can use to work on your classic project cars. This building gives you exactly that – room enough for three cars or anything else that you could think to do.

If you’re looking for an outbuilding that accents a Contemporary home, then this garage plan is an excellent choice. The asymmetric roof line gives the building an industrial style, but the look is softened with the addition of stone siding. With windowed garage doors and more windows above the storage cabinets, you’ll have plenty of natural sunlight to illuminate your workspace.

Inside, you’ll find limitless opportunities. The storage cabinets give you ample space for both tools and parts – and you may even find space for that big toolbox you’ve always wanted. The built-in workbench along the back wall gives you even more possibilities. Here, you’ll have plenty of room to work on smaller projects. Hang pegboards or an innovative shelving system behind that workbench to give yourself even more places to keep things organized.

If you need even more storage, then you’ll love the mechanical room. This room keeps the building’s plumbing and HVAC systems away from sawdust and dirt, and it will also give you a big space for shelving or to keep larger items out of the way.

Of course, this garage doesn’t have to be all about work. With so much floor space, you can easily add some seating and a widescreen TV. On race days, invite your friends over to cheer on their favorite drivers or just enjoy a few drinks while you and your friends work on a car.

With a full bathroom to the rear of the building, you won’t have to trudge back to your home to use the facilities, and you can even take a quick shower to rid yourself of dust, grease and grime once you’re finished for the day. Who knows – this garage plan has so many amenities that you may find you like it even more than your own home!

Designers Insight

If you’re looking for a great new workspace, this garage plan comes with unlimited possibilities. With its Contemporary design, you’ll love the way it pairs with your home or business – and you’ll find that its sleek, modern look helps you stay inspired no matter how you use the space.

This three-car garage plan has enough floor space for a variety of activities. If you’re an artist, use the room to set up easels, models and everything else that you need to create beautiful works of art. The storage cabinets along the side of the garage give you a handy spot to organize paints, brushes, canvases and all the other supplies you need.

Perhaps you prefer woodworking. If that’s the case, you’ll have plenty of room for several different wood saws, and the high ceilings will make it easy for you to maneuver lumber and taller projects. The work bench along the rear wall gives you a place to work on smaller crafts – perhaps a wood carving or a small spice rack – and you’ll still have room left over to set up sawhorses or workbenches wherever you need them.

If model railroads or another type of modeling is more your speed, you’ll have the room to finally build that enormous layout – or several smaller layouts or dioramas. You’ll also be able to use the storage room in the rear of the building along with the built-in cabinets to keep trains, tools and other essentials organized.

And, of course, you can always use this garage for its intended purpose! Buy a classic car or two and then spend endless hours souping them up.

Whether you use this garage for hobbies, your small business or something else, you’ll find yourself enjoying the hours that you spend here. You’ll even have a compact bathroom so that you don’t have to make trips back and forth between your home and your workshop throughout the day. If you’re covered in sawdust, paint or grease, why haul that mess back to your house? Take a quick shower in the bathroom so that you can wrap up your day feeling clean and refreshed.

Will This Design Work For Your Location?

The base code requires that the design of your structure meet certain requirements. The code allows for a couple of ways to meet these requirements. The first method is known as "prescriptive" wall bracing, and is built into the code as prescribed building elements that must be included at specified positions of the building. Prescriptive methods are acceptable as long as the structure's design fits within certain limitations (wall height, window size/location, etc.). The second method is to demonstrate, by engineering analysis, the forces imposed upon the structure, and the design of structural elements to withstand those forces. Whereas the prescriptive method imposes certain limitations on the design of the structure, the engineering analysis of the building allows for greater flexibility in the design, while ensuring it can withstand the actual natural forces the structure will experience.

In almost all cases, Mascord designs will require site specific engineering analysis. This analysis is required to be conducted by a professional, such as a structural engineer, who is licensed by the state in which the structure will be built. The analysis is specific to the exact building site - for this reason, we do not have "pre-engineered" plans that can be built anywhere. An engineer will need to review the plans and provide an engineering analysis report and additional drawings and specifications to go along with your plans for permit submittal. You should allow for additional time and expense to complete this process.

Some regions have additional engineering requirements, such as earthquake-prone areas of California and the Pacific Northwest, or the Gulf, Florida, & Carolina coasts that are frequented by hurricanes. Additional Wind and Seismic engineering drawings are required to accompany your home plans to obtain a building permit in most areas. These additional drawings need to be provided and stamped by a professional licensed in your state. In most cases we have working relationships established with engineers who can help you obtain the necessary drawings cost effectively, or you are welcome to source your own local engineer.

When the design includes retaining walls, these will also require engineering. Although the code provides for some prescriptive basement and concrete/masonry wall designs, these only work in limited situations. The use of site-engineered retaining walls allows for much greater design flexibility and ensures that the walls are designed specifically for the design loads, unique soils, fluid pressures, and drainage characteristics at the building site. It makes little sense to place the most expensive investment a family typically makes onto a foundation that is not designed for the unique characteristics of the land on which it is set.

All Mascord house plans are designed and detailed to conform to The International Residential Code (for orders out of state), or Oregon and Washington local state codes (for orders in those states).

Your area may have also have specific energy codes that have to be followed. Compliance could include filling out forms providing evidence that your construction drawings meet requirements. In many cases the forms are simple and can be filled out by yourself, or with the aid of your General Contractor.

To find out exactly what drawing details you should expect with your Mascord house plans, see "What's included in a Plan Set?"

If you aren’t sure what may be required, contact your building department and ask for a list of all of the items they require to submit for and obtain a building permit.

We typically calculate and provide sizing of beams for a snowload of 25 psf. You may need beams sized to accommodate larger roof loads specific to your region. We are able to help with this; please speak with our sales staff to discuss your options.

Building jurisdictions in several states - including California, New York, New Jersey, Nevada and Illinois - require that your home design is reviewed and your entire set of construction drawings is stamped by a local professional. If you are building in such an area, it is most likely you will need to hire a state licensed structural engineer to analyze the design and provide additional drawings and calculations required by your local building department.

In addition to the construction drawings, you may also need a site plan that shows where the house is going to be located on your chosen property, along with any grading and water management / septic system requirements.

Although we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of our design information, we reserve the right to make corrections on our floor plans or elevations as needed.
