A Mostly British Obsession

Garage Mahal

Garage Mahal

I’ve never lived in a house with anything more capacious than a single-car garage; for the past five years we’ve lived in a house with a damp one-car carport. You can imagine how excited I am about the new Garage Mahal, as my friend Chuck would label it.

The building is 48′ x 36′ (split into two spaces, workshop side and storage side). The roof is entirely supported by the perimeter walls, so the interior is clear of supporting posts. Just think, I can store at least 16 rusty old British cars of the type I gravitate towards inside. That’s progress!

We get the keys Tuesday, if everything goes according to Hoyle. (My wife tells me there’s a house somewhere else on the property but I can’t remember much about it.)

    All that space and now he says he needs a carport, too. *shakes head*

  2. Tom

    Very nice. I look forward to reading about how you decide to fill it up.

    Awesome sauce.

    Congrats. Can’t wait to see what you fill it up with. Does the garage have a heater? Running water? A loo?
