This home owner needed additional storage space and a larger garage, and we built in a few details to help them maintain order with their outdoor needs.
The existing one car garage needed to be removed because it was too small. It also had dry rot beyond repair and a cracked slab foundation. After removing it, we added a 24' x 26' two car garage with attic space.
We used engineered attic trusses to create an additional 14' x 24' storage room with an 8’ ceiling. The customers are using it for storage, but it could be used as a bonus room, increasing the resale value with this extra space.
We added a 4' x 9' garden shed onto the back of garage, so that their gardening equipment would not need to take space in the garage. We also added a 3' x 6' slab surrounded by fencing to house the garbage cans out of sight.
The exterior siding on the front of garage is Cedar Expression vinyl siding. The side and back of the garage has 4” vinyl siding. The roofing is GAF 30 year architectural shingles.
Finding a great contractor is not easy these days. After learning the "hard way" with a few odd jobs, we decided to seek out the most reputable builder we could find to address some significant improvements for our home. Since our home was built around 1860, we felt that we needed some one with a creative eye, an appreciation for historic homes, and a solid history of satisfied customers. With some good fortune, we met Jim Puida, who was not only professional on site, but he made several necessary modifications as the project unfolded to meet our needs for the long term care and look of our home. To us, Jim Puida is not just a contractor - he's a gifted man who is blessed with a genius mind for knowing how to remodel, restore, rebuild, etc. and do it well, while also being sensitive to a customer's wish!
