    Hi, what type of lights did you use under the soffits and where can I find them? The project looks great!

    Hi again Badger Brad, Thanks for the compliment! It is exactly the same timber and finish as the other project you asked about. Western Red Cedar, Band sawn, Drydons Wood Oil. Hope this helps.

    Thank you! I love the band sawn texture that you used on this project. Great little detail on the WRC. Did you use Drydons Wood Oil with a color or tint? If so, can you share the color/tint?

    Hi, thanks for your question. We worked with the garage door manufacture to develop this detail. The garage door is over clad with the same cedar vertical shiplap weather boards and is set flush with the exterior building line. Hope this helps.

5. Light selectively. Be mindful of how you are lighting your landscape. Light with intention by selecting only the most important parts of the landscape to illuminate. Take it a step further by having those lights set on a timer or motion sensor so that they are only on when needed.

Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: The Many Ways to Conceal a GarageDec 15, 2014

BeneathThis concept works well for urban lots or sloping sites where raising the living areas above the level of entry makes sense. However, raising the living levels means the garage doors will be even more prominent at the street level than they otherwise might be. In this project the designer tackled that problem by concealing them within a singular, unified wall surface of vertical cedar boards. Typically garage doors are recessed in the face of the garage wall, but here they’re set flush, which makes them barely visible when closed.

John Hill added this to 4 Modern New Zealand Homes Embrace Land and SeaFeb 3, 2013

The very un-garage-like garage doors are crafted from vertical wood boards that continue around the other walls on the entry court. Or as the client put it, "Our architect designed the doors around a courtyard, cleverly disguising them so that they are seemingly part of a wall." The treatment makes for a very welcoming entrance. A closer look at the entrance door reveals a lovely custom door handle that extends from the top to the bottom of the door.
