A Place Between the Pines

I always enjoy the challenge when a customer comes to me with and idea and materials they want to recycle into a new structure, as was the case with this client. After spending time talking with the client to better understand that they envisioned, one unique structure to house their motorcycle collection and they're gardening tools, we then walked the property to find the best location to locate this structure.

The basis for the design/build was a 350 square foot structure that needed to house four motorcycles and have a separate space for gardening tools and a potting table. Also we also needed to integrate vinyl casement windows, saved from the demolition of the original house, into the new building. The customer wanted the project to be as green as possible.

After getting an approved design concept we needed to match the main house materials including the, CertainTeed Monogram 4” vinyl clapboard siding and 7” Cedar Impressions vinyl shake siding, Tamko Heritage asphalt shingles, and Natural Stone Veneer Hudson Ledgestone veneer stonework. Also used were copper flashing above the stonework, and Bodyguard eco-friendly trim. All of the building materials used are formaldehyde-free.

This place between the pines provided a joy-to-the-eyes for the customers.
