This home packs a lot of program punch for the footprint... this 3-bedroom 3-car garage is located in the high-water district on a double lot in Jamestown, Rhode Island.
Our first challenge was including all of our client's program while being mindful not to exceed the maximum square footage allowed by the district where the house is located. With some creative brainstorming, we found ways to 'find' more space and maximize the water views. We designed a three-car garage on the ground level helping to raise the first and second floor heights to capture the water view, which increase substantially at each level.
The oversized brackets not only add to the detail but they are functional too - they actually hold up that covered porch. By cantilevering the deck joists, we provided a covered area for the garage doors below and were able to push the garage doors back allowing for a better turning radius from the driveway into the garage without sacrificing deck size or living space!
