Adding a garage to a 120-year-old farmhouse

How gorgeous is this? Many of us dream of living in an old farmhouse, full of history, where every creaking floor board tells a story, the ceiling and windows are sky high to let in light, and the craftsmanship is stellar.

We’re lucky to be on Long Island, where farmhouses and older homes can be found all over — not to mention new homes that evoke the farmhouse style.

But just what do you do when it comes time to replace the garage? After all, older homes have a wonderful aesthetic but if they’re older, you’ll need to make updates for both comfort and security.

Luckily, Clopay has it covered. Just take a look at this fantastic article (at least check out the photos!) to see how a couple in Minnesota added a garage to their 120 year old farmhouse.

And if you love the farmhouse style as much as we do, let us know. We can help bring it to your home, too.
