Gelinas | Garage Construction project
The 28 sq ft cottage built in 1987 was given some love and attention.
Its owners took advantage of the conversion of the house’s original carport into a garage to redo the exterior cladding, insulation and change the windows of the housefront. This was a beautiful way to transform the overall appearance of their home.
The 360 Verified Contractor had a lot of work to get done. He removed the beams and columns of the carport and installed temporary support in order to carry out the work of a garage construction easily. The contractor also had to do some excavation, install a garage drain, make the form work for the footing and walls, and build the garage’s walls (including insulation and siding). The homeowners chose to somewhat keep the concept of the original carport by installing two garage doors – one at the front of the house, and the other at the back. This will allow easy access to the backyard – which the family had been used to for years.
As for work on the existing house structure, it involved replacing the front door with a Fenplast exterior door, installing hybrid windows (white PVC on the inside and aluminum on the outside), removing the old cladding and replacing it with a KWP Naturetech Laurentian 8.5” khaki – fitting nicely with the new modern look of the house.
The renovations were completed according to plan, contributing to optimal results for this wonderful makeover.
