Renovated Modern-Day Carriage House Expands Living Space

Renovated Modern-Day Carriage House Expands Living SpaceThe Womack Custom Homes team recently completed renovating an existing carriage house into an expanded living space, perfect for additional storage, a playroom, a private escape or even a guest retreat. Historically used as an expansive garden shed, the homeowners now have an expanded living space to enjoy.

Aptly named, carriage houses have a long history and offer plenty of modern uses to further extend the home. Originally designed as outbuildings to store horse-drawn carriages and related equipment, carriage houses were used as a status symbol for many households.

The homeowners now have a cozy place to curl up with a good book, the children have an additional space to play in the backyard in all seasons and overnight guests have an additional place to stay.
