Adding De­tails

Old House Journal - - Learn More -

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.
