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.
