The garage takes shape

Today is a big day for the other building on the site, the garage.  The 24' x 24' garage has a roof with the same 14:12 pitch as the house so it can accommodate future solar panels as needed.  We elected not to go for an ADU* but look forward to having the volume for deep storage and functions that might seem like a good idea years from now.

The garages have been in the front yard for several weeks, and the framers had great fun (not) getting them down the alley.

* Accessory Dwelling Unit.  Such a thing would require dedicated parking, a code-legal stair, plumbing to the city sewer, a fully compliant thermal envelope, electrical, and finishes.  ADU's can be great and I look forward to the opportunity to create them in the future, but we drew the line this side of one for our home.
