Unattached Garage on Clear Lake

  • New garage on Clear Lake

Project Description

Most would agree that it is somewhat unusual to use adjectives such as beautiful or gorgeous while describing a stand-alone garage. We do feel however, that the use of those words is appropriate in the description of this garage on Clear Lake. Lynn, with much input from the owner, designed this building to meet the very stringent guidelines specified in the town’s ordinances. Complying with the setback standards influenced the design in a manner that created a longer and less square garage than is typical for most lake accessory buildings.

The height restrictions as well, created a design challenge in allowing for maximum additional storage options on the 2nd level. This obstacle was overcome with the smart use of dormers in strategic locations.

The main level is divided in a way that allows for flexibility in how the space is used. In the summer season the rear space can be used for entertainment while allowing use in the front for typical vehicle parking. In the winter, the entertainement space can be used for lake toy storage and the front space for boat storage.
