It’s every homeowner’s dream to have a place to relax and enjoy life, but sometimes, you must adjust your living space to accommodate your lifestyle. That was exactly what Patrick McGreevy did when he purchased a house and land in Brock, Texas. He knew that with his daughter commuting from college, they needed more garage space for her car. However, that meant sacrificing space for the zero-turn mower and workshop.
A Perfect Match: Blending In with the Backyard Poolscape
One of Patrick’s critical requirements for his new garage was to match his house and look like it was part of the original build. After all, investing in a property as picturesque as this makes you want every addition to enhance the overall beauty. This was where Ulrich came into the picture.
Working with Ulrich’s design team was a breeze for Patrick. Together, they envisioned a 20×30 one-story garage that would provide ample space and complement the backyard poolscape. Patrick added extra windows and a porch facing the pool, offering stunning views of the lake and the rolling hills behind their house.
Form Meets Function: A Garage that Meets Every Need
The new garage had to meet Patrick’s specific needs. They opted for a two-car garage door in the front to accommodate his truck and a single garage door in the back for easy access to lawn equipment and the workshop. It perfectly blended form and function, catering to their daily requirements without compromising aesthetics.
A Smooth Building Journey with Ulrich
Working with the design team at Ulrich was a smooth and pleasant experience for Patrick. The team ensured clear and effective communication from the initial consultation through the construction phase. The Ulrich construction supervisor, Brian Seaman, did an excellent job keeping the project on schedule and the building site tidy. Patrick appreciated Brian’s proactive approach to informing him about each upcoming stage of the garage construction process.
After the initial consultation, Patrick decided to go all in and get the biggest garage possible. It had a loft, electricity, and plenty of space for his tools and equipment. And when the final product was delivered, he couldn’t believe his eyes. It was perfect. It had exceeded his expectations, and he couldn’t wait to get to work.
But the story doesn’t end there. A few months later, Patrick had an issue with his garage door. He called Ulrich’s customer service, expecting to jump through hoops and get transferred to multiple people before his issue was resolved. But to his surprise, the representative he spoke with was friendly and helpful, and his issue was resolved within the hour.
The Envy of the Neighborhood
Patrick’s neighbors quickly noticed how well the new Ulrich garage matched his house. Ulrich paid meticulous attention to detail, matching the roof pitch and shingles of the McGreevy’s home. Additionally, they added complementary stone and painted brick accents to the garage, making it seamlessly blend with the surroundings.
A Happy Ending: Space and Aesthetics
The McGreevy family now enjoys all the space they need with the new garage. Patrick has his dream workshop, and their brand-new garage genuinely looks like a natural extension of their home.
