Thank you for your interest in our Montecito Mid-Century project. The remodel project took an old carport and turned it into the garage you see in this photo. The garage door was custom finished. Our finish carpenters Installed vertical grain veneer on raw garage door panels. The challenge was getting the grain lines to match perfectly from panel to panel. It was extremely time consuming for our finish carpenters and the result stunning.

Thank you for your interest in our project. The roof was finished with flat tar & gravel (which is hidden behind the fascia). The roof is pitched to the rear and drains into a gutter. The roof rafters are concealed within the tall fascia.

Thank you. The garage was originally a carport and the entry was not well defined, cramped and hidden from the street. The carport was enclosed and a formal entry created as a part of the remodel. The client loves it!

Can you tell me what the fascia is made of? Is it wood with metal flashing, galvanized metal, or something else?

The fascia is a 2x12 pieced of wood with a 1x4 piece of trim at the top.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Now that you've seen a few examples, let's consider the advantages and disadvantages of concrete.Advantages1. Maintenance and longevity. Cracks usually don't occur for quite a long time, and potholes are nearly nonexistent. Concrete also lasts longer than any other driveway material. The most pesky task you'll encounter is stain removal, which we will touch on later.
