2011, November 1st
A recent Mac-Bo project was the resuscitation and new life we gave to a former garage and potting shed. The building had been giving way to the moss and spiders for some time when we got our hands on it. This is better illustrated than described and can be seen in the photo below.
The moldering building’s state was largely the product of copious leaves dropped by the neighboring tree.
Shock of the old: it’s hard to believe that this is the same building!
New French doors replaced the garage door, permitting light inside while still allowing things like bikes to easily enter.
The interior’s lower walls are clad in beautiful, warm, and durable toungue and groove paneling. The upper walls are painted white to brighten the room and reflect as much light as is possible.
This lovely, original window needed lots of TLC, but was ultimately salvageable, bringing in an expansive view of the garden.
