HGTV Dream Home 2011: Car Barn Exterior Pictures

The garage exterior showcases an impressive gable end complete with eco-friendly poplar bark siding and hemlock timbers, cut and milled locally.

A six-arm chandelier peeks through the gable-end window, creating the illusion of second-story loft space.

An asphalt drive blends seamlessly into the home's bluestone side patio.

A narrow cobbled bluestone walkway along the car barn exterior leads to the front entry and the overhang supported by hemlock timber columns.

Standard garage doors get a modern lodge makeover with a coat of exterior paint.

The soffit assembly for the garage's gable end overhang was constructed on-site. Using special jacks, the gable end, once constructed, was hoisted into place.
