This 2 Bay Garage is actually a modified 3 bay garage as the final 3rd bay has been changed to a laundry room with Velux windows and two personal doors, one that opens to the front and the other that opens round the side to the back of the garden. A gable roof has been used with machine made clay tiles.
Internally and externally this building has power and lighting whilst also inside there are two open bays that have been used as a man cave and garage space. The internal partition has not gone all the way up to the rafters to allow for a smart storage loft space above the Laundry room.
Two good methods of keeping costs down on this project have been the use of larch weatherboarding that silvers similar to oak with age and doesn’t require treatment however is a much lower cost & also the use of softwood doors. If you’re looking at painting your garage doors it is definitely worth going down the softwood road as they a much lower cost than hardwood doors.
A softwood undercover walkway has also connected the laundry room to the house making the quick trips “too” and “fro,” much more pleasant especially in winter months.
We loved working on this project and were very pleased the clients were ecstatic with the result. They want another building from us and we have started work on designing a TANK store!
