A Log Garage(14 of 15)

You've built a beautiful home. Don't ruin it with an ugly garage. Remember, garages take up a lot of space and are hard to disguise. But there are a few things you can do to help it complement your log home. First, consider how you will use the garage. Can you make do with just a carport? Will it be used for storage? What kind of security will you need? One aesthetic trick that architects often recommend is to build the garage perpendicular to the front of your house. That hides it a bit. And don't skimp on the materials. Match them to your house.
