Timber Frame Carriage House Plans
Past Carriage House Designs
An 18th or 19th century home of any consequence included a carriage house. Carriage houses for small, city houses could be small, utilitarian, or only adequate to house one small carriage. However, carriage houses for large estates could be quite elaborate and large enough to house many carriages, horses, tack, and hay. They could even include basic living quarters for the staff who managed the horses and carriages. As the transition from horse and buggy to automobile occurred, these appealing structures were often converted into garages and guest suites.
Our Carriage House Plans
Paying homage to the ever-popular carriage houses of the 19th century, Woodhouse’s Carriage House series takes the homespun charm of a traditional carriage house and merges it with elaborate and elegant design. Each of the designs has two or three ground-floor garages, protected by a steep-pitched roof, with ample apartment living space above them. When you head up the foyer stairs, you’ll be greeted with striking vaulted ceilings and an expansive open floor plan that provides far more space than the exterior alludes to. It’s the perfect addition for your guests to stay in or to serve as a temporary home for you while you build your final timber frame dream home.

**All square footage amounts listed are shown as “Gross Livable Square Footage.” “Gross Livable Square Feet” is defined as the combined floor area of all levels for the building structure, encompassing the perimeter of the exterior wall line, but not including space under a 5’0″ height line, typically occurring at the second floor where roof lines intersect with floor lines. Any lower levels (basements), connectors, or garage areas are not included in our package price, but framing materials are available at an additional cost.
