Charming Garden Patio

Turn the exterior wall of the garage into an inviting lounge.

If a full garage conversion isn't an option, try adding to it from the outside instead. When these Toronto homeowners put in a new garage, they incorporated this seating area on a little patio beside it. Grapevines and rosebushes are trained to grow up the columns and over the pergola. Pretty, black-painted french doors access the garage.
