    Large accessory buildings (residential): photos wanted

    I'm looking for any photos of large accessory buildings, such as large detached garages, metal sheds/pole barns, and the like, in predominantly residential areas. Photos should include the accessory building with the primary residential structure. Thanks!

    What is "large"? Are you talking about detached garages over 1,000 sqft or ones that appear to dominate the principal building? And in what context: rural, urban, suburban?
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    My former neighbors in Williamsville had a very large garage/barn built in their backyard to house equipment for their landscaping business. They have since moved to Clarence and have taken the business with them. I don't have a picture but it should be visible in aerials from google or local.live. PM me for the adress.

    About three homes back, I had a place with four accessory buildings. I have a photo of the largest. It was 1500 square feet on each level, 3000 total. Most of the stalls had been removed, but there was stilla manure cart in the milking room. I have a picture if you want it.

    There is a house down the street from us that has been on the market for almost two years. I refer to it as the garage with attached house. Two double doors flanking an extra-high door in the center. It is attached, though, but I would be willing to snap a picture if it helps.

    Here's one...and if you're interested, the property is for sale.





    There are more around here, I just need to remember to take my camera to work each day.
    Annoyingly insensitive
