Shades of Gray

This once modest beach cottage was slowly transformed over the years into a grand estate on one of the North Shore's best beaches. Siemasko + Verbridge designed a modest addition while reworking the entire floor plan to meet the needs of a large family.

best options for heating a detached garage apartment - How is this garage heated/air conditioned?

Thanks for your question. There's really no bad option for heating a garage. It depends on your budget, your preferences and location. The apartment above could be heated with water baseboard, or with a ducted hvac system, or go on the simpler side and use a heating/cooling wall unit. Depends if you want the system to be non-visible or visible. You can heat the garage with radiant heat or a hanging garage heater.

Thanks for your question Jgoldstein123. The siding was subcontracted and we aren't sure who they used.

Thank you for responding. I certainly respect you for not supplying floor plans, etc. I am curious, do you have any photos of the upstairs you could share? If not, I understand.

Thanks for your inqury Joyeble. We don't reveal costs for our projects. First reason is the privacy of our clients. Second, there are so many different variables that go into design and constructing that can change the cost drastically. Location, material selection and availability, contractor/sub contractor selection, and so on. We hate to give you a number and be completely off for what you are looking for. Your best bet is to find an architect and contractor in your area and start working with them to get a rough estimate.

Thank you! The gray on the exterior cladding is a custom made color for this specific project. I suggest bringing the image to the color pros at Benjamin Moore and have them help you pick out a similar color.

Brent would like a third garage. We presently have a two car garage with one door. We wonder if we could add onto the existing garage with another garage (using the opposite roof line)? We like this look a lot, although our one car garage addition would be on the left side of the existing garage.

I like the unattached 3 car garage with the sport court but I would prefer a connecting Breezeway.
