Historical design makes use of architectural features to add style and dimension to a garage meant to blend with an old house. Corbels, brackets, siding and shingle details, pergola extensions, and window boxes are added to make the building more attractive. Period lighting is the finishing touch. • Until recently, the problem with stock and manufactured garage doors has been their flat, dimensionless appearance. That’s changed since the introduction of such elements as true divided-light windows, V-groove panels, cross braces, and better hardware.
