Our (sort of new) Garage

A while back I posted that we were redoing our garage to match the rest of the house.  It's done and we are very pleased with how it turned out.  We closed in the carport side, took out the middle wall and put in a wide garage door.  Previously, we had one spotlight in the middle of the peak but we changed that to two carriage lights.  While we were able to reuse the cedar plank siding that was under the vinyl, we did add the cedar shake to the peak of the garage so that it would be more in line with the house.  Also, we added gutters to each side of the garage.

Perhaps my favorite addition is the new door that was put in on the side.  I think that it helps to break up such a long expanse of wall.  Plus, we can get trash cans, bikes and recycling in and out a lot easier!

I'm not sure why the color is off on this picture!


  1. You did a lovely job! I especially love the doors. They look so classic and clean.

  2. That's so cool i wish i had a garoge like that
