Car Barn From HGTV Dream Home 2011

A bright fall foliage-inspired color palette extends to the two-car garage, where a pine-sided interior and vaulted ceiling lend elegance to the oversized space.

Although a loft does not presently exist, builder Brendan O'Reilly clad the interior space with pine siding and structural hemlock beams for an easy upper level addition. Six-arm chandeliers and recessed lighting dress the hardworking space, which could easily house a workbench and provide additional storage space.

The car barn reminds me of a vaulted formal square dance space. It's really a space to be enjoyed.
