Default HGTV's 'Top Ten Garages' this Fall

A few weeks back HGTV contacted me about a series they are currently filming showcasing the very best in North American design. The show is called 'Top Ten Garages' and a beautiful garage of one of my clients will be featured in an episode appearing this fall.

The garage was designed Peter Zimmerman Architects (http://www.pzarchitects.com/). The specific idea of this large complex consists of a car ‘barn’ with multiple display spaces, office space and a washing area, but it was also envisioned as an adaptive reuse of a historical structure. The clients desired the duality of practical function with the historical appearance.

The initial desire was to locate the structure as far from the main house as possible, however the site constraints required it to be relatively close to the main house, which required the structure to harmonize and complement the historical nature of the design approach to the main house.

The barn was design as a structure that grew over time; the main stone mass is dated to the late 18th century which ties into the period of the main mass of the main house. The secondary masses date to the mid-to-late 18th century.

The massing and additive nature of the forms and materials of the structure relate to the regional vernacular of the historical barn and agricultural structures in this region of the country. The barn was built using many locally sourced materials; the stone for the barn was collected from the excavation on the building site and from the 22-acre property.

If you would like to see more pictures of this particular garage and read more details about the design of each room, please visit my Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/vault.garage

I will be interested to see if any of them are actually worked in.

mine is not far off that and i do lots of work in mine... fixing bikes, doing cashies on other peoples cars, aswell as working on my own project cars..

its not hard to keep things tidy and organised.. mind you, i cant sleep if i leave things messy.. i will toss and turn and eventually get up and tidy up in the middle of the night.. even if i still have something on the go with parts everywhere... i will still keep it in some kind of order before i shut the doors... it just takes discipline. keep it clean and it takes maybe half an hour a week to go over everything and physically clean it... not just tidy up and put things away... let it get dirty and it will take a massive amount of work to get clean again.
