Revamp Champs Entry #14: Gorgeous Garage– Laura Clark, Portland, ME

I sided my garage with 10″ pine shiplap, installed a new windows and trim…

Previously the garage siding was JUST plywood with cuts in it to look like shiplap. There wasn’t a water barrier underneath the plywood, so it became rotten at the bottom on 3 sides. I cut the rotten plywood off and replaced it with new plywood, getting rid of the potential for further structural damage due to water. I applied tyvek, sided with beautiful shiplap, and trimmed it out. When we sided the peak of the garage I decided to make a design by alternating rough and smooth sides of the wood. When we stained it I knew the color on the smooth side would come out slightly lighter giving the peak its striped design. I am really happy that the rotten wood did not damage the structure and I can rest easy knowing we will have an awesome garage that has a lot of character for decades to come. The overall change to our backyard is tremendous because now the garage looks nicer than the house!!
