Garage Restoration

Originally a post and beam horse barn built in the 1890's, a previous owner had made changes to use it as a garage for the family car. Time, weather and salt took their toll on the old girl and she started to sag and fall apart.

No, you're not drunk, the old girl really does lean that much. While it would have been easier to tear it down and start from scratch, it would have been necessary to move it to the middle of the yard to comply with set back requirements. Therefore, the owners chose to rebuild her where she stood.

Standing tall and sturdy for another 100 years, we later replaced the shingle roof when we re-shingled the house.
