Mountain-lodge style extends to the garage, clad in poplar bark siding. Sturdy timbers, constructed on site, add structural support as well as aesthetic value.

The story of the car barn's construction begins with pine, harvested and milled locally, and rough sawn into siding, which in turn is stained a muted shade of gray.

The garage feels so solid and grounded with the poplar bark siding and heavy timbers. It feels like a red carpet ride to pull your car into the driveway.
Builder Brendan O'Reilly

Hemlock timbers, also constructed from locally sourced lumber, form the car barn's gable end – an architectural element that also offers structural support. Lastly, poplar bark siding tells a story of sustainability, as siding is manufactured from the bark of tulip poplars harvested for other manufacturing purposes.
