Photos: Legendary HP garage gets makeover

Deconstruction of the HP garage began on Apr. 12, 2005.

The garage, designated California Historical Landmark No. 976 in 1987, needed work, according to HP. Much of the Douglas fir panels had rotted, so workers removed the decayed pieces and filled the holes with an epoxy. Fire sprinklers and steel beams were added so the garage could withstand an earthquake.
