love old carriage house style garage doors! i also like the darker gray siding with the crisp white trim. "Sectional doors can feature windows in an upper panel, and some higher-end versions can mimic the look of traditional carriage-house doors."
This kind of "bumpout" storage can be very useful in a small house, but make sure it's properly sealed so water doesn't get trapped between the walls. - To connect with us, and our community of people from Australia and around the world, learning how to live large in small places, visit us at www.Facebook.com/TinyHousesAustralia
