Following that strategy, Hubner designed a contemporary asymmetrical front-gabled roof over the garage addition, but, in a nod to the home's style, flanked it with a shed dormer, a common feature of early Colonials. A side-gabled roof over the mudroom on the first floor mirrors the house's roof line and connects the addition to the main house.

Shown: Board-and-batten-style galvanized-steel doors from Garaga dress up the two-car garage, evoking an attached carriage house.

This Old House - Episode #3419
Host Kevin O'Connor arrives to find Landscape Contractor Roger Cook starting on the new bluestone front walk despite some significant grade challenges. Around back, Master Carpenter Norm Abram finds tile contractor Mark Ferrante installing porcelain tile made to look like slate in the screen porch. Kevin recaps the vanity project and meets Plumbing and Heating Expert Richard Trethewey to see the sink and faucet set. Nearby in Acton, MA, Roger visits a stone salvage yard to see how Gavin Johnston is selecting and fabricating antique granite for the front walk and custom house marker. At the end of the day, Kevin sees the granite steps in place and lends a hand as Roger sets the house marker.
