Q:I am considering this plan, and would like it with the attic and basement stairs. Where will the entry from the garage be located? Also, will an average sized car fit with the stairs, I assume it will. I would not mind if the laundry room is moved over to fit the door, as I will eliminate having a bathtub in the corner of the master bath, prefer just a shower stall.
A:The entry into the home from the garage would be at the end of the wall between the stair and garage. You can see an opening on the layout with the words “Optional Stair to Basement” . This opening would be the doorway into the home.
The garage size would be 19’3” x 19’3”. Please verify with your vehicle size.
Modifications can certainly be done to meet your personal preferences.
