New House Update: The Garage.


We had a chance to zip out to the country today to visit the house and see the progress since our last trek out. The drywall is now finished on all three levels, including the garage. I'll share a few shots over the next few days. Today, I am focusing on the garage, which is a space that will serve several purposes: parking for two cars, freezer storage, workshop space for my dh, garden tool organization and a separate storage space for those items that are seasonal and we won't need in the house on a daily basis. 

Door leading out to the back garden.

Stairs to the house, with storage underneath.

Storage room in the corner.

We have measured but I think the ceiling is 10'.

This space will have floor to ceiling shelves.

The workshop space. Some day, we'll put in cabinets.

My car parking space.

And dh's spot for his car.

A proud man and his "man cave!"

Dd being silly!

I won't post a picture of our current garage but it's so small and so packed with gardening tools and workshop tools and recycling and boxes for moving that we can only put one car inside. Can't wait for this space that will give us room to stay organized and park comfortably. Soon, very soon!

Is your garage a dual space or just for cars?

Our garage is small, it was built in the days when cars were smaller than now, it has bicycles, old paint pots, empty pots for plants in the summer , and lots of spiders, beetles, and cobwebs! Luckily it is not attached to the house! X

Sounds like our current space. Works well but once we move to the country, more garage space is going to be needed. We won't be able to use our little lawn mower and will have to buy a small tractor for cutting grass and then moving snow in the winter. And our garden space will be bigger, meaning of course, more tools! Ugh.
