    Ok so the model A, the roadster, and the new 40 sedan have out grown my current attached garage. Starting to look into building a detached garage for the toys. Would like to have it look like an old building and thinking of trying to find some old barn siding. Does anyone on here have a garage that you have gone this route with? (Pictures please)
    Have checked on the GarageJournal but not found much
    Thanks.

  3. Not a good view but this old garage has the barn siding,,just go to a saw mill and they can supply you with the sough saw lumber. HRP

    Around here you can't use just any sawmilled lumber for building. To meet codes it must be kiln dried lumber, and stamped as such. Darn code inspectors will give you all kinds of problems.

    I believe that for the frame but siding isn't structural.
     
  7. Same thing here,,structural framing must the treated and anything that comes into contact with the concrete must be pressure treated. HRP

    If you look into it structural lumber has to be coded and certified but the siding can mill locally milled and far as I know. Just did my garage interior in grade 3 barn siding.
     
  9. We built a facade on the front of my garage using cedar fence boards. Over time it will age and have a rustic look. I would have rather used old barn wood but this was easy and inexpensive. You could have a new metal building and add a facade to get the look you want.

    Kiwi Kev's still stands out in my mind as "perfect". Outside & inside.

    The Willys garage looks great. We talked about adding a false front to this old milk barn for years.

    We never got around to adding the false front, but we did add on to the back of it, so we could store two more cars under roof.

    We put old signs, a gas pump, and even a yard-ornament-Model A in front of the new garage, but it still looks like a new garage.

    It's hard to beat and old barn for appearances, even if its a substandard unit for storing cars.
