This garage door awning project is an easy way to dress up the front of your garage and improve the curb appeal of your home. Besides providing support for climbing vines such as clematis or jasmine, the structure adds dramatic impact and lends a unique, upscale look to virtually any style of home.
Built from durable cedar, this awning is designed to fit a standard 16-ft.-wide garage door, though it’s easy to adjust the length depending on your specific requirements. Because it’s built in two sections, you can do most of the cutting and assembly in your home shop and join the two halves of the arbor outside once you’re ready to install it. Basic carpentry tools are all you’ll need to craft this eye-catching creation, and because you won’t have to alter your home’s siding to install it, you can easily remove it if you decide to change your home’s exterior in the future.
