    Default Garrison Overhang

    I live in a Colonial Style Home which has a slight, approximately 5" Garrison Style overhang from the second story over the first. Can anyone tell me if there is anyway to eliminate this overhang? I absolutely cannot stand it and not sure why it was even built that way in the first place. I love the house otherwise, but really didn't pick up on that overhang until after moving in; I would have still purchased the home anyway. I'm really into the flat front of traditional colonials/federal style homes and this overhang kind of impedes the look I'm trying to achieve. I'll start off here and get some ideas from others.

    Thanks in advance.

    Eliminating this overhang will result in more costly changes, so it's really all about how much you want to spend.

    I can't believe you bought this house without noticing this overhang. But it is what it is. Personally, I think it's an easy way to add space to the second floor.

    Next time, be more picky.
