New covered parking, storage, and workshop space is squeezed between a massive pecan tree and the back corner of the property and replaces a 1920's single car garage. Saving the original slab lowered costs and minimized new slab additions preventing tree damage. Project is open on all sides to reduce scale and provide ventilation and natural light. Workbench element is visually separated from the roof and opens completely to the covered slab beyond rolling metal doors. Doors are suspended from a laminated wood beam supported on poured-in-place concrete columns. Wood studs and trusses are spaced 24" apart to maximize storage. Canvas is stretched around the end truss. Bolts, screws, and structural hardware are oversized and extended to accentuate connections. Small window in the workbench area provides a direct view to the kids play area. Wood siding match the original 1920 house, while the corregated metal roof recalls the former garage.
