Restored Modern-Day Carriage House Magnifies Living Space

Restored Modern-Day Carriage House Magnifies Living SpaceExpanded living spaces have grown in popularity in the last year with more people spending time at home. Historically used as a spacious garden shed, the Womack Custom Homes team recently completed the restoration of an existing carriage house for the homeowners to utilize for extra storage space, a private escape, a playroom or even a private guest retreat.

Carriage houses are fittingly named with their long history and now offer a variety of modern uses to further extend the home. Initially constructed as outbuildings to store horse-drawn carriages and related equipment, carriage houses also worked as a status symbol for many households.Restored Modern-Day Carriage House Magnifies Living Space

The newly renovated carriage house is now a finished space with a stylish French door entry featuring sidelite windows on either side, an eye-catching shiplap ceiling, refinished bluestone flooring, an enormous built-in unit with storage cabinets and shelves for books and display items, a cozy couch and hanging rattan chair. The homeowners now have a cozy place to curl up with a good book, the children have an additional space to play in the backyard in all seasons and overnight guests have an additional place to stay.
