When Rose & Chris wanted to add a garage to their home in Lunenburg, MA, they remembered seeing The Barn Yard & Great Country Garages at the Big E. They fell in love with The Barn Yard’s barn-style garages. They knew The Barn Yard could design, engineer, and build a barn garage that perfectly complimented the main residence. And that’s exactly what we did.
Rose & Chris wanted a garage that looked like a barn. Thus, they went with a 12' first floor wall height and chose a herringbone sliding barn door for the front gable end. The sliding door is inset. They also went with 2' x 2' square awning windows and juxtaposed with rectangular double hung windows, adding to the barn look.
They connected the garage to the house with a 12' x 12' attached open breezeway with finished cathedral ceiling. Both Rose & Chris are very pleased with how the garage was attached to the house. “You can’t even tell where the old house ends and the new breezeway begins,” they said.
Around back, the garage serves double duty as a pool house, complete with overhang. Under the overhang, there's another inset sliding barn door with diamond window.
The barn is also a garage, of course, and on the driveway side there are two 9x8 Amarr Classica Carriage-Style steel overhead doors with strap hinges/handles and transoms above. Barn lights flood the garage doors with light in the evening.
The result is a garage addition that looks as if it’s been there forever. Combined with the white home, the red barn garage is your classic New England style, and the envy of everyone who drives by.
