Fisher Garages — Oak Park, Packed with History and Creativity
Oak Park is truly one of Chicago’s most creative suburbs, home to world-famous residents, including Ernest Hemingway, whose family home is now the Ernest Hemingway Birthplace Museum. A beautiful Queen Anne built in 1890 by the writer’s grandparents, the home has been restored to reflect the beginnings of arguably the greatest American writer. But Hemingway wasn’t the only distinctive resident of lovely Oak Park. The home and studio of Frank Lloyd Wright has the distinction of being the first project where the architect had complete artistic control, and it displays his unique style along with his connection with nature. The originality and artistic creativity of these two men has inspired all of Oak Park, and is alive and thriving, thanks to arts groups like the Oak Park Art League, Riverside Arts Center and Freeark Gallery. In addition, you’ll find many charming shops offering a variety of beautiful work from local artists. Add a wide variety of international restaurants and exciting clubs, and you will be caught up in the special aura that surrounds beautiful, surprising Oak Park.

What Size and Style of Garage Do You Need?
The roof style of a detached garage is an important consideration for both aesthetic beauty and function, and Fisher Garages will help you choose the best style and garage size for your new garage structure.
A gentle slope on all four sides presents a pyramid shape with a low -profile roof line that does not compete with the line of the house. The low line is good for high-wind areas, or areas where the view is important.
The triangle-shaped roof with front and back gables offers a steeper pitch for efficient rain and snow runoff and could include some storage. The angle of the gable can also be designed to blend with the home’s rooflines.
Reverse Gable Roof
Here the triangular gables are at the sides, offering a longer line side to side. Like the gable roof, the pitch also allows for storage and efficient runoff. In addition, gable windows can be added along the front to match your home’s design.
