Hanging out in the Hangar

The Grand Victorian is a truly one of a kind building. It can be a shed, single bay garage, home office, pool house, and more. For this customer, the Grand Victorian Cape Garage became “The Hangar,” an airport-inspired hangout with a beautifully finished interior.

As a busy commercial pilot, Jeffrey D. of Southwick MA wanted to create a place he could relax and hang out with friends & family at home between flights. Thus, the concept for “The Hangar” was born. Inspired by the Grand Victorian Cape Garage (currently the back cover of our shed brochure), Jeffrey contacted The Barn Yard to get started. What transpired was a unique building that might as well be located at the airport.

14x28 Grand Victorian Cape Garage, Southwick, MA

  • Barn Red Duratemp Siding and Rustic Black Architectural Shingles
  • (6) 30x36 6/6 Windows
  • Carriage-Style Overhead Door with Square Glass & Strap Hinges
  • Therma-Tru Insulated 3' Entry Door with Half Glass
  • L-Shaped Stairway with 16" x 16" Octagon Window at Landing
  • Full Loft with 2' Knee Wall
  • 7 Window Transom Dormer
  • 36" AZEK Vinyl Carlisle Cupola with Arched Glass & Biplane Weathervane

Jeffrey finished off the interior himself. V-groove pine decking covers the insulated walls and ceiling. Recessed lighting provides elegant illumination at night. Speaker wires are hidden in the walls and there’s even a disco ball for parties. The stairway and full loft are carpeted. Upstairs in the loft, watch TV and pop popcorn thanks to the well-designed TV corner with microwave built in. There is even a built-in desk with amateur radio transmitter and mini-fridge close at hand. In the summer, the space stays cool with just one window air conditioner. During winter months, an electric fireplace provides warmth. Outside, runway landing lights outline the large patio and a windsock (with the words “The Hangar”) indicates the current wind speed & direction.

This is certainly one of the most creative transformations of the Grand Victorian we’ve ever seen. The building is truly worthy of its name, “The Hangar.”
