High-Style Garage

The forest green shingled freestanding garage with carriage-style doors takes design and color cues from the main house. The well-detailed garage offers both storage and hangout space, with a paved courtyard that anchors the structure to the home's back door.

Fully Stocked

Front carriage-style doors open to reveal a garage fully stocked with top-of-the-line recreational equipment, a work bench, a lounge area for relaxing, a dining table and decidedly collegiate plaid papered walls.

Flexible Seating

Three indoor/outdoor taupe bean bag chairs with pillows provide comfortable and flexible seating that can be easily moved when the garage is being used to store a car.

Sturdy Kayaks

A pair of sturdy one-person kayaks designed for long-distance paddling hang on the garage wall. The kayaks feature a lightweight design and UV construction that helps protect against cracking, fading or peeling.

Plaid Papered Walls

A washable gray tartan plaid wallpaper adds pleasing pattern to the garage, and reflects the collegiate location of this Ann Arbor home. The garage also includes a retro-style pedestal fan with oil-rubbed bronze tripod legs and a satin nickel finish to cool down the space on warm days.

High-Quality Bikes

The garage is perfect for storing the pair of urban electric bikes, ideal for commuting and recreation, that are part of the HGTV Urban Oasis 2016 prize package.

Easy Entry

An attractive bronze door, with insulated smooth fiberglass construction and three panes of clear glass, provides entry from the garage to the attached screened porch.

Open Things Up

This larger, trendy glass and aluminum garage door also provides entry into the attached screened porch for big gatherings that call for the two spaces to feel like one.

Framed View

The open glass and aluminum garage door frames a beautiful glimpse into the attached screened porch that offers space to lounge and enjoy views of the property's lush green landscape.

Coordinating Spaces

A similar neutral color scheme and natural design helps the attached screened porch blend nicely with the urban garage.

Roomy Tool Chest

A sturdy 15-drawer tool chest made from steel and rubberwood offers storage for tools of all sizes and shapes. A pretty collection of glass cylinders and vases that can be used for fresh flowers from the garden sits on top of the tool chest.

Dual-Purpose Table

The garage includes a wood and metal dining table that can be used to share a casual meal, or as a space to work on plans for the next home or garden project.

Rustic and Modern

The sturdy dining table is crafted from solid oak and metal, with legs in an X formation that give the piece of furniture a rustic feel.

Play Some Tunes

A rugged wireless Bluetooth speaker makes music available for casual gatherings in the garage.

Fresh Breeze

A vintage-style ceiling fan adds personality and helps keep the seating area in the garage comfortable during warm days.

Durable Doors

The energy-efficient carriage-style doors with an insulated steel base are finished with faux wood composite cladding and overlay, giving the garage a strong presence and attractive look.

Have a Seat

White rattan chairs with a curved seat and ottomans offer a way to enjoy the sun and lush surroundings in the courtyard. The chairs include green-on-green pillows that are made from weather resistant fabric and have an eye-catching geometric print.

Creative Recycling

A large old tree had to be cut down but was creatively turned into an attractive sculptural oversized planter with midcentury paperclip-style legs for the courtyard.

Rustic Charm

A close-up view of the oversized planter shows the rich grain of the wood that gives a unique look and rustic charm.

Back Door

This view of the paved courtyard looking towards the house shows the stairs that lead to the back door with the mudroom just inside.

Pretty Path

Attractive pavers laid in an irregular pattern create the path to the courtyard at the back of the Craftsman home.

Freestanding Garage

At the end of the paver driveway, the freestanding garage offers both storage and a casual space for relaxing and entertaining.
