HGTV Green Home 2012: Garage Exterior Pictures

Classic Southern wagon sheds inspired the form of this modern farmhouse garage.

  • Anchored at the top of the property's sloped backyard, the garage is designed to resemble an old wagon shed.

  • The concrete foundation is softened by black myrtles, English laurels, serviceberry and yaupon hollies. Sliver windows continue the home's contemporary design theme.

  • Fiber cement board replicates the look of traditional lap siding. A 5-V crimp roof in sheet steel is earth-friendly and in keeping with traditional farmhouse style.

  • A composite board staircase leads from the garage to a landing where stacked stone resembles the remains of a barn foundation.

  • The winner of the HGTV Green Home 2012 Giveaway will receive an all-new 2012 GMC® Terrain® that boasts all the comfort, technology, quietness, and superior fit and finish of a luxury sedan.

  • The carport leads to a gravel-paved alley located behind the home.

  • Blueberry bushes are among landscape elements that will soften the embankment and attract native birds.

  • All-weather furnishings are placed at the carport's edge, providing an unobstructed view of the backyard and home's most outstanding architectural details.

  • A cedar railing with a metal cable reinforcement echoes the front porch design elements.

  • The durable sheet steel roofing system follows classic farmhouse forms. The light color reflects light and radiant heat, relieving the burden on internal cooling systems.

  • The home's 1.35 kilowatt array has the potential to generate 1710 kilowatt hours of energy per year.
