Garage ideas

My wife and I are starting the planning stages of building a detached garage on our property. It will be next to our log cabin. Our cabin was custom built by original owner using hand hewn 6x12 poplar logs. Aside from building the garage to match cabin, I was looking for alternative options that anyone has maybe gone with? I am just looking for different ideas, materials, looks, etc. that will not look out of place next to cabin. See More

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(mrs.joycegyimah200@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Joyce.
