Garages typically have been reserved as glorified utility sheds that occasionally house a car or two, but this thought has shifted lately to create multi-use bungalows from this wasted space for guests that desire added privacy and silence from a bustling home. This view has rendered some inventive creations, where the lucky guest is placed in a surprisingly comfortable and spacious studio apartment set over an enclosed workshop. We were recently treated to this latest customer project submission, which is nestled alongside the beautiful Upper Mississippi River Valley in Western Wisconsin. This traditional styled garage combines calming earth tones with the classic faÃ§ade to create a compelling vintage inspired garage, worthy of praise from any visiting relative. Complimenting the retro colors of this charming mid-western garage is the robust metallic copper finish of the 14â€ Shallow Bowl Gooseneck Light mounted above the future second story deck entrance. The rich brown metallic finish on the shade not only matches the highlighted trim of this classic garage, but it also provides a finishing touch to the home with the blended pallet of colors running through the shingles just above the shade. Extra style and function is offered thanks to the addition of the cast guard and glass covering the light bulb under the shade, with a photocell mounted against the wall to act as a dusk to dawn sensor. With plenty of charisma, this upgraded traditional garage is sure to turn heads while providing a comfortable destination for company to unwind.
