New Small Home / Large Garage Combination

Small House Big Garage Solution

In this project, the owner desired a large garage matched to a small home. The solution to this requirement is in the orientation of the buildings (home and garage) on the site. The negative impact of a larger garage in proportion to the house is mitigated by working with the site and positioning the garage on angle. Refer to the website on “Not So Big House” for more details on the concept of a small home.
