Don’t let the garage or carport be an after thought. If carefully thought out, they can offer valuable overflow space:
– With south windows, they can become a greenhouse.
– Being a little larger in one direction, they can provide space for a workshop or outdoor play equipment storage
– A carport can be a great place to hang out clothes or host an outdoor party. It allows for views too from the house as you look through them instead of at solid garage wall. (of course you might also have to look at bicycles, tractors, etc.)
– Some clients like a combination garage and carport that houses the best of both worlds of security and openness
– Use a variety of windows and doors for character, then don’t forget the landscaping!
