I am looking for plans for a large garage to sit next to a victorian house. I would welcome any suggestions.

I am a designer and would be available to provide design drawings for the garage. If you require a registered architect stamp please let me know what state you are in.

You can send me an email at

suggestion? do NOT put the garage on the house, put it next to the house or alittle down from it. why? well victorians we fun people and did fun things with houses. most of all they liked turning corners and making a true house in the round. so if you ad a garage that is a long static being it will make the house look like its drowning with a structure holding on for dear life... how to fix this...? don't attach it, then it won't compete. and watch out for modern designers, modernism and revival architecture does not understand the feelings and concepts of old designers. what? well they will (most) think victorian is a ornament to be applied to a building after its framed, while victorians thought organic shapes breaking the idiom of square unhealthy buildings.
