Garage Side 1 Finished

January 16, 2012

We just finished the west wall of the garage.  Alex is outside making window planter boxes while I type this post.

The colors that we chose for the garage may end up being the colors for our entire house, so we’d love comments!  Of course… it’s tough to judge from a single photo.  We were trying to pick colors similar to our house’s current color (grey and white), but leaning more towards green and a creamy white.  We also tried to match the design of the window trim to what’s currently on our house.

As you can see from the before and after photos below, the end result is about 1000 times better than what we started with!

Of course, if I step back a few feet and take another photo, you can see the massive amount of work that we still have to do.  Like I said, the west wall was really just our “practice” wall.  We refer to the back of the garage our “shed”.  The shed is not connected to the inside of the garage, and it was clearly an add-on structure.  Unfortunately, other than the roof (which we recently re-roofed), the entire shed needs to be rebuilt.  We will have to build supports for the roof structure, then remove the siding, and then build up the walls.   Just like the original condition of the garage, the shed is currently supported only by old, rotted siding – there are no 2×4’s in the walls.

    Really, really amazing. I love the greenish hue to the grey – or is it taupe-y hue to the green?
