that and wiring the garage for 220...

Thought about 3 phase... may do it down the road. right now tho, its cheaper to run the welder off of 220 than it is to run it off 110

I hear you...

We tried to find a house we liked with a three car garage, but it wasn't to be... We love the house, but the garage is so small, so Debbie and I built a 12 X 20 shop on one side of the house... 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 can't wait ti see your place... Have you thought about having modernized works put in that fridge you have, or do you want to go back original.

My requirements for when me and Bonnie bought a house were vaulted ceilings, 3 car garage, and a huge driveway.

Bonnies requirements were a swimming pool, an open kitchen to dining to living room and a game room.

Our house has a swimming pool, an open kitchen to dining to living room a game room, 2 car garage, 8 foot ceilings (ya, I know, should be same as vaulted to me lol) and a regular driveway.

So it looks like one of you got what they wanted. It's all about the compromise.

I also wanted A 3 car garage with a big driveway so I can fit all the cars.

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...

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)
