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.
Re: Garrison Overhang
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.
