I just pulled into my garage for the first time!
This may not sound like much to you, but this is the first garage I've had in my 38 years of marriage.

Homer at home, at last.

Please don't stare at my hula girl, she's easily offended.

Garage???? Are you talking about the parts bin with the rather large doors?

I feel your excitement.
I haven`t had a garage in years and I just recently got one of those "garage in a box" and although I have read people say you need more room I am perfectly happy to work around any problems that might come up. I could have built a garage for fairly cheap as I have done major construction, but after finding out how much a soil sample for pouring a foundation plus the actual cost of pouring the foundation was I said, to heck with that. I will spend that money on my truck and just work under a 350.00 portable garage and so far it has been fine, so I say if you can move around your truck and get the work done, I`m happy for you.
