As the old adage goes, timing is everything. The owners of this property at Crooked Lake were very fortunate to have contacted us about expanding and remodeling the garage when they did. Having just relaxed some of the restrictions in place on garages, changes recently instituted by Steuben County Planning Dept. made this project possible.
The owners not only needed a larger space but a higher ceiling in part of it served by a taller overhead door. This area is to allow for an R.V. to be stored inside. Due to tight side-yards the owners also requested the garage to be designed in a way that would allow access to the large rear yard with larger vehicles. Lynn also designed a floored attic with permanent stairs to increase the storage capacity even further.
Since it was advantageous to maintain the positioning of the existing garage, it was determined that it made sense to remodel and expand rather than tear down. All in all, the owners are very pleased with the function and aesthetics of this almost-new garage.
