Garages Worth a Tour

Old House Journal - - Contents -

Style notes and prob­lem solvers in the de­sign of new garages.

The orig­i­nal car­riage house was di­lap­i­dated: Early on, horses had taken their toll, while, more re­cently, changes to ac­com­mo­date an RV had de­stroyed the his­tor­i­cal char­ac­ter. “The new home­own­ers saw a fun, quirky old build­ing worth sav­ing,” says Cam­bridge, Mass., ar­chi­tect Frank Shirley.

His de­sign adds ve­hi­cle stor­age, as there are four driv­ers in the fam­ily. A game-room get­away for teenagers and a pri­vate re­treat for guests fill the loft area above the garage bays.
