Carriage House

A carriage house, also called remise or coach house, is an outbuilding which was originally built to house horse-drawn carriages and the related tack.

In Great Britain the farm building was called a Cart Shed. These typically were open fronted, single story buildings, with the roof supported by regularly spaced pillars. They often face away from the farmyard and may be found close to the stables and roadways, giving direct access to the fields.

Famous quotes containing the words house and/or carriage:

    It is getting dark and time he drew to a house,
    But the blizzard blinds him to any house ahead.
    The storm gets down his neck in any icy souse
    That sucks his breath like a wicked cat in bed.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    An earthly dog of the carriage breed;
    Who, having failed of the modern speed,
    Now asked asylum and I was stirred
    To be the one so dog-preferred.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
