The garage: workshop, office, studio, laboratory, living space, soundstage, playroom, storage area, parking spot. From the eccentric to the sublime, the 52 garages featured here highlight the adaptability--and possibilities--of this uniquely American structure. Garage provides a glimpse inside the most private place on the streetscape, showcasing garages where people work, live, and play--and even a few where they still park their cars. Garage also offers creative options for using existing space, floor plans for new buidlings, and design solutions that will help you discover the potential of this most versatile "room" in the house.
This collection of America's best garages takes you on a journey from a dream workshop in New England to a recycled garage in Ohio to the birthplace of the computer industry on the West Coast. Along the way, there's lots of practical information and inspirational design ideas on the home's most useful space.
