Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Storage on one side, open on the other
Integrated potting bench, garden tools
Finished look with only a cost of paint
A wall that permits light, ventilation
Elegantly stacked living space and garage
Cavern-like feel with light coming from the sides
Storage like this would be interesting against an opaque wall
It would be nice to achieve this look with the garden side wall
Man Cave storage, but would need speakers!
I would re-imagine this as light wells/bay window with seating area at the end
Could you use a sliding door like this on one side to make the side yard or garden feel bigger?
Garage Wall Track
Clerestory window provides light to make this useable, comfortable
Interesting stacking: it makes me think of the garage as an opportunity to use a different range of materials to create a more interesting garden space
Would like to leave space for home gym in garage - but this is excessive!
Living space above garage might have quiet zone above garage entry and sleeping area closer to main house
Moving storage, pantry area next to garage would allow us to use awkward space created by elevation for storage.
Like the idea of rolling storage
Having mud room and garden stuff share space probably makes sense
If it was air conditioned...
Need something for composting, but not this big!
So if you keep the mass towards the front, you could have a porch/green roof towards the back of the house like this.
Interesting entrance to the back with access to trash area
Another grand inspiration
Cor-ten can be corrugated, right?
Like the corrugated metal ceiling
A little better scaled than the other sliding doors
Typically like thing balanced, but I like this and it makes sense if living area needs to be shifted towards garden side
Can we have a garden sided light box?
Needs to be lower, but it would be great!
Smallest yoga studio in the world
There is some serious multipurposing here!
For the basement!
I can imagine this roofline for the garage with the linear sky lights - but only partially
A yoga mat makes this reading/nap area into something more.
Home Crossfit setup - could tone it down a bit.
For the east side
Around the big front tree delineating the parking space
I love this mix of textures an colors - could we do something similar in the front?
Creating an angled yard might allow for more interesting landscaping
Too zen for me, but imagine this in the east side yard as seen from the kitchen
I like how this creates a soft low border next to the hard border.
West side yard with something underplanted
East side yard?
Pebble walkway to easy side yard?
Love these stones...
I love these bound bamboo screens that could be taken down in Winter
