We get to work with some amazing people on some really cool projects. This project in particular has some of my favorite people (clients) of all time. They appreciate what we do and allow us and trust us to design for them. Phase 1 of their project is to design a detached garage / barn / workshop addition. The goal with this addition is to help with the scale and proportion of their existing home as it sits on the beautiful site in Shenandoah County. They learned during the construction of their home, designed by a builder, how important it is to have a holistic approach to a project to compliment the building site and to achieve their aesthetic and functional goals.
The detached garage / barn / workshop addition will house some of the equipment used to maintain the property, give a place to store the messy stuff in a neat and orderly fashion, and expand the space to make stuff in a second story workshop. The structure sits in the corner of the lot not to take away from the existing structure, but to complement it and tie both together aesthetically. We will also do some work on the existing house to improve function and aesthetics in a later phase.
The framing is in process and the builder is taking good care of our clients. Here are some photos of the progress.
