You can download a demo version of 3D Floorplan,3D Home architect, or Punch Software. I have used all three and they are not hard to learn. I like Punch the best. These programs are great for visualization. If at all possible, you might want to consider building the garage seperate from the house. This will alow more freedom in your roof height and will also allow you to deal with less strict building codes. I have worked as a contractor for many years and in my experience, the building codes and permits are alot less strict than the ones for attached buildings. My number one thing with garages is depth. I like to have plenty of working space in the front and rear of the car when it is all the way in the garage with the doors shut.
