Stowe, Vermont

A modern mountain lodge was chosen for HGTV Dream Home 2011 where the garage exterior features an attractive gable end, eco-friendly poplar bark siding and hemlock timbers that were cut and milled locally. The gable end window conforms to the rest of the residence, giving the impression of a two-story living space.

The interior enjoys substantial light provided by subtle recessed lighting, two six-arm chandeliers and the gable end window. The ceiling's copper paint and walls' gray-stained pine siding complement the hemlock beams to bring the warm autumn palette of the outdoors inside.

Kiawah Island, South Carolina

HGTV Dream Home 2013 features a substantial two-car garage with doors painted and styled like the home's lower level so they effectively disappear.

Inside, the garage floor is sanded concrete that's sealed in a high-gloss urethane. This marine-grade treatment offers maximum protection against dirt and moisture (including Low Country flood waters) and, in conjunction with the state-of-the-art breakaway wall system, provides a dramatic reflective surface to add depth and scale to the multiuse space.
