Potential was the only good word for the carport when we purchased the old house two years ago.
It had a rusty, bent up roof
The walls were mismatched, made from leftover materials. There were weeds and brush growing through every crack and crevice. Most of the studs holding up the walls were rotted off at the bottoms.
But seeing through the ugly and distraught and visualizing what the can be, is what we do best.
Three open bays, a garage without a door and a shed on the end is what we started with.
The roof was first.
The roof alone was a huge transformation
The old walls were torn down.
There were old real estate signs and windows behind the walls.
New walls were built but oh my goodness those windows hold my heart.
The end was closed in and so that our junk (treasures) were hidden.
The door openings were all framed in so that doors could be installed
Each and every opening (5) has a pretty door and an automatic opener.
Here’s the first door going in. It was an exciting day!
They each have pretty black hardware that mimics a carriage door.
New lights that match the house finished the look.
The next step is concrete.
