No. 16 - The Desert Rose Garage

Shawn A. Dehner

The Desert Rose Garage is June's bonus free house (garage) plan. The garage plan is designed for a single vehicle and matches the overall architectural design of The Desert Rose small house plan but would complement any number of homes with its classic design. 

No. 15 - The Desert-Rose


The Desert Rose is a client designed modification of the Forest-Rose accessory dwelling unit. This newer version is slightly larger and intended for full-time living. Also, don't miss the Desert Rose companion garage plan, which is also available for free.
