At PermaBilt® our best creativity comes when our customer is limited by site location, permitting, budgeting, etc.. That’s why in- house consultations with our experienced Building Representative are always so productive; It’s where some of our best ideas come from. So when our Camano Island Washington customer wanted to build a metal garage with an apartment space for out-of-town guests he was limited by a rather small lot. So the PermaBilt® team put their collective heads together and went through numerous design iterations. We came up with a design that met his requirements by putting the apartment space on the second floor of the garage. In addition, we made sure that the metal garage’s T1-11 siding and the standing seam roof matched his residence. Later our customer painted the siding to match his residence and finished the upstairs with insulation, sheet rock and interior finishes. The customer also added a car hoist, indoor and outdoor lighting and gutters once our work was completed.
Once complete, our customer was excited to work on his classic car collection with plenty of room for his friends to visit. It’s often stated that ‘word of mouth’ is the best form of advertising. This building turned out so well both of our client’s neighbors are also proud owners of a PermaBilt® building!
