Ah yes. But, I did it on my house attached garage that was just completed.
The following picture shows the back of my house. The garage and the apartment above are a new addition. The concrete patio, patio cover, hardie siding and metal roof are also all new. (Still needs paint and driveway)
And just an fyi, the house did have detached garage when I bought it, but it is not in very good shape. It will be knocked down in order for me to build the new shop.
