In cold weather markets, where does the patio furniture go when the snow flies? Usually, the garage. But some new homes are built without a garage, and some garages just don’t have the room necessary to accommodate your patio items. Other folks use a shed, but such outbuildings are prohibited by many neighborhood covenants.

An emerging new home amenity is storage accessed directly from the outside. So whether it’s patio furniture, sports equipment, bikes and big wheels or lawn and garden tools, thinking through such seasonal storage needs is essential.

These two plans offer a convenient storage space tucked behind the garage with access to the garage and the back yard. Let us help you customize a plan to include outdoor storage where you need it.
