We did a re-do of our mud porch for the garage conversion…I still don't see the purpose of it (the 90 degree turn at the door is odd to me) but I did get to keep the old cabinet on the porch. The two garage doors were replaced with real wood siding and pretty windows (and doors). There is more lighting in the mother-in-law quarters than seems possible…starting with the two cute exterior lights.
Now…see the door to the apartment? It is in the exact same place as our old garage sliding door. Certainly everyone that reads home magazines (and blogs, and pinterest, etc.) knows all about the cool barn doors on rails used in interiors. I stood my ground and reused the garage door inside the apartment…show you in the next post.
- windows and doors: anderson (to code for our historic district); canvas exterior
- exterior lights: antique copper lantern from home depot; also a cute smaller version…would make cool indoor sconces.
