There are many things to consider when building a garage with an apartment above, from storage options to the comfort of a new tenant. However, it may be wise to consider a separate closed apartment garage plan rather than the attached plan.
You need to find a separate garage plan with an apartment before purchasing a plan. Do you have a better idea of where and how you want to build your “architect detached house projects” (which is also known as ”arkitekt eneboligprosjekter” in the Norwegian language), you will have a better idea of what plans to look for. This will save you time in the long run.
Since you are building an apartment, you will need to include an electrician and a plumber, if not an architect, in your growing number of contractors. You might have some ideas on how to optimize your storage space and you'll make sure that they all install correctly the first time.
Many plan equipment doesn’t include the small details or conveniences that make a house a home. Therefore, you need to find a way to organize your house without the help of a ready-made plan. If you are planning to equip an apartment, then you need to study that too.
Regardless of which garage is planned with an apartment above you, new property structures are an investment and should be seen as such. Make sure it is suitable for your property. If it doesn't look good, it will lower the value of your property and will take longer to pay off the initial investment in construction.
