Detached garage addition

DeMotte Architects as Architects

The architect was challenged with designing a two story 3 car garage connected by a breezeway to an existing colonial house, with the new garage replacing a detached garage in the same locationwhich was in a state of disrepair.

The second floor consists of a 900 square foot apartment with a living room, kitchen, bedroom & a bathroom. The space is open & airy, with cathedral ceilings and the cupola functioning as a light well.

The covered breezeway was designed with bluestone pavers, a cathedral ceiling finished with bead boardand round fiberglass columns.

The garage is designed to match & complement the house, using the same materials for roofing, siding, & trim. A copper-roofed canopy is supported by decorative wood brackets above carriage style garage doors.


Material Used:

1. Roofing: asphalt shingles (GAF/Timberline)

2. Siding: 1/2x6 cedar clapboard siding

3. Windows: Marvin

4. Garage doors: Designer Doors

5. Columns: HB & G
