Sometimes, bigger is better – and in the case of the Washington, VT grand garage build, that couldn’t be more true! This 3-story garage model features a white pine board, red trim, and a green metal roof for a subtle color scheme; however, you could customize your own garage in any colors you want. It goes without saying, a 3-story garage has MORE than enough room for all your storage needs!
