The Journey of building our forever home in Melbourne, Victoria

The Journey of building our forever home in Melbourne, Victoria

Modern Farmhouse Garage - we have approval!

After around 7 months we finally had approval for our shed yesterday that will be built in our backyard.  Hopefully work should commence in the next 3-4 weeks and I will document our progress on how I turn a 12 x 8 metre colourbond shed into something a little more 'Modern Farmhouse style'

As this sheds faces towards the back of the house and will be seen from all the back windows  -  it was important to design this space in a way that complements the house. What hubby chooses to do inside it is completely up to him - as long as the outside looks pretty then I'm happy  :)

We have chosen colours similar to the main house and it will feature panelled garage doors with highlight windows and gorgeous barn style lights. The second driveway will then finally be levelled and a soft beige gravel will be used. Ladscaping can then be finally finished on this bottom section

Its been difficult to find inspiration on modern farmhouse style garages - the Americans do them so well but here in Australia its much harder to find suppliers to get this style while staying within budget.

Wish us luck - I think I have missed this design/build stage so looking forward to this project!

Below is just a rough example of our shed plan - doors will be a panelled door and the front of the shed will be clad with a product that is a steel but has a weatherboard look to it.



Down the track I am hoping to extend paving to the side ( near the side door) and have a fire pit, raised garden beds etc


Garage doors will be similar to these 
Black barn lights similar to these will be used
