HGTV Dream Home 2013: Garage Pictures

A two-vehicle space offers storage for bike, kayak and golfing supplies.

  • The garage's unique breakaway wall system is clad in PVC slats and screening, which guards against bugs and animals.

  • The garage accommodates two vehicles and provides storage space for bikes, kayaks and golfing equipment. Southern yellow pine timbers connect the garage architecturally to the house proper.

  • \"We wanted the ground level of the house to feel like an inviting living space and an extension of the upper living levels, so we added a comfortable seating area with a Ping-Pong table and television and sealed the cement floors with a protective marine coating to give the floors a glossy finished look,\" says house planner Jack Thomasson.

  • The garage's slatted walls and ceiling hooks accommodate storage of sea kayaks, beach cruisers and golfing equipment.

  • Beach cruisers, suspended from ceiling hooks, lend a sculptural quality to garage interiors.

  • The screened-in and slatted wall becomes an additional storage surface.

  • A humidity-controlled closet within the garage houses golfing bags, clubs and equipment and fishing nets.

  • The garage area segues to a playroom, where daybeds offer a relaxing spot to connect with friends and family or enjoy a midday nap.
