Garage & Shop Description
Built in 1993, every effort was made to maintain the integrity of the original house. The house must remain the dominant feature so the garage is not as large in appearance as many of today’s “toy bins.” It is not small however, and it is delightful to be able to put three reasonable size vehicles in it and have all vehicle doors open simultaneously. It is quite easy to place a “stored” vehicle between bays 2 & 3 with reasonable access to all vehicles.
As is the house, siding is #1 clear, smooth, western red cedar with Sikkins Cetol. The roof uses 320# “architectural shingles” similar to those on the house. All windows including three skylights are Andersen, passage doors are Pease. Overhead doors are Raynor, with the big door using commercial hardware for extended life of this very heavy door. Insulation is fiberglass batts in sidewalls and ceiling. An integral drain system below the floor includes drains in each stall area and leads to perforated pipe in a large drain field. Gutters and downspouts enter a separate underground drainage system.
A central vacuum system offers receptacles in both shop areas as well as for each garage bay. Outdoor lighting connects to the “midnight sun” system as described in the convenience section.
Refer to the floor plan of this building for more details. Total area is 1292 Sq.Ft.
