A detached garage with wood shingle facade painted in white evokes the look of a carriage house and echoes the style of the adjacent French country-style home. Above the garage is a small guest apartment with a balcony from which to enjoy views of the wooded property in Atlanta, Georgia.
Varying heights in architecture brings interesting levels to the exterior appeal of this Italian villa style home. Neutral walls shine against dark brown roof shingles, a neutral driveway and wood garage doors.
This picturesque home features a brown wood shingle exterior with a slightly red hue, a perfect accent to the gray rooftop and rust colored front door. A three-car garage provides ample space for stowing away vehicles, while perfectly manicured landscaping completes the grand overall look of the estate.
Thanks to its pitched roof, lightly-colored shingles and rustic wood beams, this converted garage feels right at home in its country setting. A long gravel driveway leads directly to the structure and so helps protect the carefully manicured grass from tire tracks.
Red cedar wood shingles were not only chosen for the roofing, but required by the community for a consistent neighborhood appearance. A cupola with a weathervane sits atop the garage as a tall spectacle.
An inviting porte-cochere trimmed with heavy wood beams connects a side entrance of this French country-style home in Atlanta, Georgia, to a small shed that is set up to serve as a private office or studio. Both structures are clad in whitewashed wood shingles, mimicking the style of the adjacent carriage house garage.
In La Jolla, Calif., a Prairie Craftsman-style home is completely remodeled. The inviting front porch has stone-based, wood-battered columns that lead to the front entry door. Stained cedar shingles with rows of alternating bands envelope the house, and the garage is relocated to the front of the house to make way for a backyard pool.
