The gable ends, were the cars entered the garage, were ornate, and composed of a stepped gable design terminating in a central pedimeted parapet. The gable end featured three garage entryways with sliding barn doors, each topped with a pediment above a blind fanlight. The central door had the grandest design with the tallest pediment and largest blind fanlight decorated with turned balusters. The facility's powerhouse had a tall smokestack.
