Yep, a GARAGE. Ten foot walls, attic trusses, cedar trim, fiber cement siding (Certainteed), 30 year Certainteed shingles, and a little imagination. Nothing but the best of the best.
Yet another fun garage to build. If you look close, there is shake on the top of the gable to match the house.
On another note,If your having issues with the City of Sheboygans 15ft height limit, and need a steep roof to match an older home, I CAN HELP. The garage above represents the max 15ft limit, and an 8-12 roof pitch. The ceiling height is still the standard 8ft, and poses no problem with a standard overhead door.
Building techniques like this can be used to accomodate taller doors as well. If you have a camper, or an RV that requires an 11 foot door, no problem. Call for a free estimate today!
The goal of this garage was to match the house as close as possible. I don't think its a 10, but it's at least a 9.5.
Over 100 year old salvaged wooden beams were used on this garage project. Prefinished Certainteed fiber cement siding was used along with cultured stone installed by the homeowner. (Fun to build)
Theres just something about building a garage that's bigger than your house......... Can't quite put my finger on it.........?
Adding this gable was to shed water away from rotting the trim boards below the patio doors.
Yes, this is the same house. If you notice the window on the bottom right side is the same size and location. All the demo work I did myself. Along with the framing, windows, and hand cut rafters. The house didnt even look like an addition was put on when I left.
This deck I used the Veranda material on. A composite decking material the Home Depot sells. The wood you see on the stair area is cedar. Every screw was placed using a jig I made up to make sure the placement was the same on every board. VERY time consuming. I even predrilled a 5/16 hole 1/4 inch deep to eliminate any mushrooming.
In Kohler we rebuilt this garage. The old one was having water problems, cracked concrete, and structural issues. We salvaged the overhead door, service door and some electrical items. Not a bad reproduction I think.
And here you have a 14x16 Garage/Shed on the south side of Sheboygan. The blue siding with white trim always looks nice.
Here is a MONSTER front porch I did in Oostburg. 10x44. Ill have to make sure I update the "after" picture when I do the lattice, and its all painted up. I just couldnt wait to post this on the net.
Heres a 6 foot high dog ear fence I put up in Fredonia. An interesting fact...... We did 43 of the 44 holes by hand since my post hole auger broke. And we still finished on time.
Two overhead doors were installed in this building in Glenbeulah. The framing of this place consisted of REUSED logs for rafters! How old do you think that lumber was? To make a long story short..... I can safely say that I can put an overhead door in anywhere after this job.
Fire, water, mold, and any other possible misfortune you may have, I can help with. You can rest assured that you'll be back on your feet in no time at all. My close ties with a number of other contractors enable me to quickly and efficiently get you back to normal.

Flat roofs with doors just don't mix. Winter snow and ice build up and cause all kinds of problems. In this case making two windows was just the right fix.
If you can do something to the exterior of your home, it was done here. A new window was completely added, new front door, back door, overhead aluminum clad frame, cast stone, an entire gable with vinyl shake, siding, Tyvek, foam insulation, lighting fixtures, and roofing by Precision Roofing. Im going to have to add more pictures of this one!
