Beautiful work!!!!! - I have been having a difficult time finding decorative stone this colour in this size. Would you mind advising the manufacturer of this? I assume its dry stacked but can't tell from this size picture. Many, many thanks!

Thanks for the question. The stone is actually a native stone from Maine, often called Lincoln stone, and it is not a decorative veneer as such, but a good 4-5" thick, hand laid. it is not dry stacked, but mortared with a deep tool, allowing a sharp shadow line throughout the wall.

Internal gutters ... - Do you have a detail for how u achieved this that you would share?

The gutter is basically set at the face of the exterior wall and the roof continues beyond the wall; the gutters lead to exterior mounted gutters. This is a traditional detail (in can be found in old versions of Architectural Graphic Standards) but very tricky to get right and requires a lot of coordination and care.

Thanks! They were custom built for this house, with mahogany panels to match the windows and trim.

I frosted mine with the film from Home Depot or Lowe's. That way I have privacy (no one needs to know when my car's there) but still have light. I leave one inch edge so I can see out a bit if i'm working in there-but mine are eye level. It looks good and since my taste changes, I can razor them off later if I want to.

Pretty garage!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Natalie Myers added this to A New Look for the Overlooked Garage Door
More wood garage doors, this time the wood is applied vertically to integrate with the home's wood columns.
John Hill added this to Modern Gable-Style Homes
The garage for the same house in Maine also features a gable top, an almost platonic prism that seems to float above the stone walls and wood columns below. The simplicity of the roof and wall materials above, as well as the sharpness of the edges, make it particularly modern.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Top 10 Solutions for Architectural Peeves
9. Cookie-cutter garage doors. Why is it that no matter the style of house, the garage door invariably is the double-wide, raised-panel? Solution (shown): With so many options available, garage doors that fit with the home's architecture, as in this example, are definitely possible.
