I have enough room to fit 9 comfortably but it's a pain having to move one to gt another one out of the garage.


Lol, I have always wondered if the garage was full of vehicles at the same time you have three or four trucks and an SUV in the driveway...Guess so...

It's actually a Pro-Tall Tough Shed that we finished out on the inside with insulation, sheet rock etc... Lots of electrical, Heat/ A/C etc... and surround sound stereo..
I'm going to sit down with some graphing paper and draw out my plans for the garage. its not going to happen any time soon so I've got time to review my thoughts on it.


oh and on a side note, Emily called me on the way home yesterday and at one point in the conversation mentioned that she liked the mailslot on the camaros(v8s) (she called it the nose slit) over the ones without (v6's). So it appears that when the time comes... I wont be going v6...lol

We looked at probably 50-60 houses in the last couple years and we've found a bunch that we both loved, but were either way too expensive or out in the @$$ crack of creation (which I wouldnt mind for everything I would be getting) One house had a 2400sq ft unfinished basement that the guy had converted to an under house garage... and it had a 3 car detached garage already and 5 acres of land, but out in the boonies.

My only real requirement for a house was that it had at least a 2 car garage. The worst part of it all is that apparently I have no idea what my wife wants in a house. she would send me a few listings to look at and I would then find other ones that I thought were similar/identical... and she'd tell me they were ugly or something else. women...

this house does not have a ceiling that is less than 10ft and the only one that is 10 ft is the bathroom. the top of the doorway in the hallway (2nd row, middle pic) is 8ft... then theres another 3-4 ft before you hit the ceiling. The house itself could be a 1.5 story looking at it from the outside. but its HUGE inside. (see pics below) one of the coolest things about the house is that it has the original sinks in the bedrooms (that was apparently popular back in the 20s)

Thanks Rob,

This is one of those things that Emily absolutely loves this house. and I love the possibilities that lie within... and the fact that she loves it. It is a testament to old style construction. to get a new home to be built like this one would take a lot more than I'm paying. ($30k off the sellers asking price...)

Right now I'm just waiting for my finance company to come back with the loan paperwork and then I just have to wait till June 8. I plan on taking my truck with a load of boxes to the closing... then starting the move as soon as the paperwork is signed.


My family is coming into town that weekend and staying thru the next weekend for my daughters first birthday. the biggest hassle is going to be moving everything in a weekend and getting the last few bits throughout the week so that we can celebrate my daughters birthday at the new house. The good thing about it is that our current house is between my work and the new house, so if we don't get everything moved on the weekend, I'll be loading up stuff every day after work and taking it to the new house.

come to think about it... the best thing about it, is that I can organize the garage the way I want from the start... as opposed to just shoving things in to get them out of the way and hardling having any room to even walk around in. Emily told me that the garage is mine and mine alone to move. I told her it wouldn't be that hard... since most of my stuff is still in boxes from when we moved to this house (she didn't like the thought of having transformers action figures and lego model kits hanging from the ceiling and on the shelves throughout the house... ....)



hey PQ... hows that for a thread jack?

Hey Robert...thinking about doing a DIY project...thought you may wanna join in. These cars desperately need a telescoping steering wheel and I think we should be able to retrofit it. You in?!
