Parking spot for a flying car! If you build it, they will come.

What's not to understand? I added the garage to boost my homes value. It's simple home economics you see.

But the plan shows it this way, the Building department approved it, and it's too much of a hassle to refile.

This is a standard 2 story garage isn't it? It was built by a building contractor with experience at a local burger joint. Do you want fries with that?.

I asked the neighbours who lived there, and they reported that they had seen a old chap with a long white beard, and some say he has a large red sledge in the garage and stables down stairs. They say he only seem to turn up about once a year?

Actually I am curious about what it really is. The structure below does not look substantial enough to support a vehicle - so is it just a poor choice for a roll up door to an enclosed patio or open air porch?

I've seen a lot of restaurants that use garage doors to give them that converted garage industrial look. Other times they are very high end garage doors and blend seamlessly with haute decor. When opened these doors usually provide sweeping vistas of parked cars and dining alfresco on busy sidewalks.

This can only be a hillbilly master suite in a land free from code violations. It's like an infinity pool.. just different.

...that or a recent annex to the winchester mansion.

..not a good house for a sleepwalker

...makes the mind wobble

Hey Mildred, where did I put the rear garage door opener? At least if this tectonic plate theory holds up, I should be able to pull out without backing in about 10,000,000 years. Hey honey, did you notice how our neighbor's fence railing is all crooked?
