After serving as a family home for 20 years, the Critter Creek Garage makes a new life out of its old memories. The current building now functions as a 5-car garage and studio space. Constructed from a mix of salvaged and new materials, it takes on a modern, rustic presence at the same time still preserving its historic character. Posts and beams from the original structure were salvaged and relocated to the new site. Update with galvanized steel connectors, the old timber frame was left exposed for the interior and filled with stones quarried onsite. Douglas fir siding from the previous structure now lines the interior. A row of aluminum and glass garage doors make room for five vehicles while a mezzanine houses an art studio in the rafters above.
