Description

This unique garage features 3 porches on the ground level! The one at the front has four posts that support the upper level. Above this porch, wooden shutters surround the windows and an upper atrium peeks over the roof. Additional porches on either side provide walk in access to the garage space, and the one on the right includes stairs to the upper level and a door to a workshop area with a washer and dryer. Behind the porch on the left there are two horse stalls that can of course be used for other purposes. Examples might be to combine the spaces to create an office or a workshop, or for parking something smaller than a car.

An exterior staircase at the side of the garage accesses the upper level, and is covered by the roof above. The upper covered porch has two French doors with a glass surround that opens into an open studio space. The open living space sits under the slopes of the roof, and has a ceiling that peaks at 10'. A center atrium brings in additional natural light while open wood beams accentuate the sloped ceilings. An open kitchen is straight ahead, and it features a center island with a sink. A 16'–wide dormer to the left provides space for bedroom furniture, and a door accesses a full bath with a closet.
