Over the years we have provided designs for various types of accessory structures including garages. A design of a new garage depends on it’s use, intended location and site conditions.
This first garage was unique in its design requirements. The owners property backed up to an alley resulting in the garage door facing the back of the property. The homeowner had incredible landscaping and gardens and wanted a garage that did not look like a garage from her kitchen window.
This particular owners existing 4 car garage was not large enough for all his toys. There was not enough space adjacent to the home for a garage so this wall built about 40 yards away. It was designed with 12 foot ceilings so he could install car lifts and the exterior matched the house details.
The key to designing any addition on an existing home is to ensure it looks as though it was part of the original construction. This is especially hard with brick which is almost impossible to match. By using corners or a different material at the point where old meets new, the addition can blend in and look as it was always meant to be.
This is a small, quick, functional and economical design for a client who was starting an auto body shop. With concrete block walls and pre-manufactured roof trusses, construction time was a minimum and resulted in a sturdy, weather resistant building.
