Don't forget the work on the house, will you?  :)

Even being >1m away from the boundary, I think the neighbours are likely to complain if Eboy visits a wooden garage ... when the fences, hedges and trees are alight  :-X

I suppose I should feel a bit guilty.

I used to have a huge garage/workshop probably big enough for about 4 Omegas  :o (never tested this!).

I bricked about two thirds of it off for a sort of "music" (well drum kit) room   ::)  I now have very tiny garage (no workshop  :y ) possibly big enough for a Smart car. But in reality it's just full of junk.

Keep us updated with the 'decor' as it evolves

Sadly the only change imminently is it being filled up with cr@p from the house. At this rate I'm  either going to need to employ a Feng Shui expert, or a divorce lawyer.  ::)

Updated the decor over the last week with the addition of one 'barn-find' kit car. As it's a non-runner I had to trailer it and backing the trailer up an unmade road on an incline made the Sh!troen sweat mightily. Still she's in now.



I also built a platform over the car to store all the cr@p from the house while we renovate.

Very nice Jimmy, although I am surprised you didn't put a pit in. When I had my current house built I told the builder to put a pit in. The next time I looked at the site he'd put in a solid slab. >:( >:( >:(
Annoyingly, a near neighbour who lived on site had one put in, yet the current owner born with no DIY skills never uses it. :-X

Thanks Shackeng.

Re. The pit, we don't plan to stay long when it's done so we wouldn't see much benefit on the outlay.

Tbh I'm also torn on put vs scissor lift. Given that I'm in my 30's I can't see me buying a 'home for life' any time soon. So having something I can pick up and take with me when we move definitely appeals.

If Jimmy buries that car too deep in crap, he'll forget about it and it'll be someone else's barnfind one day!  ;D
