Garage Mahal

@Screem and @Suddabym can start this off nicely I'm sure :thumbup:

Anyone else got a garage you could justify charging an admission fee for?

My current charge is a fiver, but I'll also throw in an ice cold can of San Miguel from the beer fridge 🍺

My garage is in the pay-to-leave category, but after seeing some of the tiny concrete slots pictured on this forum, I've decided not to complain about how full mine is.

That 'tiny concrete slot' is actually a double garage that (if required) is big enough to take our two standard size cars, neither of which is a pick up truck, so it's more than adequate for us 👍

Did not mean to imply yours Simon, I was thinking of some of the 2m x 3m x 5m examples that some have had to wedge their wedges into...

You go in through the boot to get to the nuclear bunker, natch.

Mines not the biggest space but I’ve utilised the back of the garage to install “the lotus lounge!” 

Blimey.

I’ll get my coat.

People pay entry fees for escape rooms and for various activities that pose  risk of injury just by being there, so perhaps I could justify an entry fee (refunded if they navigate the garage without injury).

Wow @Screem, if I had that set-up, I'd fake my own death and live down there. Between that for me and insurance for the wife, it'd be win-win!

You need some better garage-opening music. "Also Sprach Zarathustra" would do nicely. :D

It’s just the rest of the house. Kitchen/ dining. etc 

it’s been a labour of love renovating the house. I’ve done everything myself. The Cinema room was always in the planning but the “lotus lounge” was an afterthought and started with this, basically 2 kitchen base units and some cheap Floating shelving from ikea  :

After having mine in the neighbors garage for the last 2 years. And mostly 1 car garages before that. I finally have a 3 car garage!

 

I plan to do a 4 post lift next, and may get another Lotus in the near future.
