The homeowners of this garage addition are avid collectors of Porsche, Audi, and Ferrari sports cars. After purchasing a neighbor’s adjacent lot, they started to plan for a second garage so they could house four additional cars to their existing six-car garage. They worked with architect, Howells Architecture + Design, to create a gracious, natural extension to the main house and first garage.
This second garage addition was designed to precisely match the home’s cedar shingles and veneered culture-stone base, creating a lovely curb appeal. Careful craftsmanship with an eye for detail help provide a final polished and unified look.

The architect included a garage backdoor and a new deck that overlooks the ravine. Also, an opening was cut through the adjacent wall of the first garage so that the clients can easily access the garage from the inside.

Because of soil and steep-terrain issues, there were special engineering requirements for this garage addition, requiring the initial excavation to dig deep to reach down to where there was stable soil. Once stable soil was exposed, a special Geotechnical engineer was onsite to monitor the crews’ work while they built back up and compacted the ground, creating needed stability before pouring a garage foundation and concrete slab.
The end result: this second garage provides ample space for four cars. Natural light streams into the garage from the windows on two walls and through the closed garage door. The room is bright and inviting, but, remains just a humble utility backdrop in comparison to its masterpiece occupants.
The garage door is a modern classic design with a bronze anodized finish. The door lites use a white diffused laminate.
These are highly skilled people who care deeply about the quality of their work. Barry
