HGTV Dream Home 2012: Garage Exterior Pictures

An integrated garage borrows design features from the modern rustic ranch home.

HGTV Dream Home's private drive leads to an incorporated garage, clad in fiber cement siding and topped with an asphalt shingle roof.

Landscaping beds, planted with Creeping Mahonia and Sub-Alpine Fir, offer a pleasant welcome to guests who enter the home through the garage.

Slowmound Mugo Pine creates a soft pop of color along the garage's edge.

Spire-like Sub-Alpine Fir lends a lived-in look to front yard landscape and bookends the home.

A timber trussing system, fashioned from Douglas fir, lends a rustic element and supports a corrugated metal overhang.

The home's color palette is inspired by Utah's glorious skies, the deep blue waters of the Provo River and mountain ranges at sunset. A side yard, planted with Kentucky bluegrass, represents an active zone where guests can play lawn games.

A covered walkway, clad in durable composite decking, connects the garage to the family room.

Precision was required to make intersections at roof intersections appear nearly seamless.
