My dream garage is underway
 
Being into cars all my life i've always wanted a decent sized garage, but never had one or room for one.
Bought my first home last year with er'indoors, which came with a garage albiet too narrow for even a BMW Isetta to fit in! But the land around the house had room for a bigger garage on the side.
Had plans drawn up to build a bigger garage on the side of the existing one, with the wall knocked through to make it into one big space. Waited anxiously for 8 weeks and i was granted planning permission :D:D:D Currently there is a poxy small toilet and sink at the rear of the garage, and i've decided to knock that down and have a perfect rectangle shape to work with.

Also at the same time we're having a new roof on the main house, and when the extension is complete a new roof there too, and the whole house rendered.

We had a wall going along most of the front of the house and a small front garden, which i had reduced by half and garden removed, to make basically a 5/6 car drive.

Anyway that's just a few thing's i've had done to the outside since we moved in.

I'm going for remote control roller shutter doors, keeping the existing garage door aperture size with a new roller shutter, and hopefully a 3.5 - 4 metre door next to it the other size of the pillar.
Inside i want an epoxy resin floor, plastered walls, central heating + hot cold water (easy as there's pipes for the existing toilet there), lot's of electric sockets and some silly bright lighting - what ones though?

Hard to explain in words but you can see from the plans what it will be like.

I'll keep taking photos of the progress, hope you find it interesting!

Concrete base will be going down in the week i believe. The new garage will go back as far as the french doors of the rear room, at the very rear will be a patio.

Will keep updating :thumb:

That's one very nice big space you are going to have there mate.
Looking forward to seeing this progress :thumb:

Very nice, going to transform the look of the house and give you a huge space - the external current garage wall, which will be then the internal dividing wall (if that makes sense) - is that being demolished once the new extension is built ?

Oh and loving the subtle green car on the drive :D

On my dream list

Yes that wall will be gone :)

Will be a lovely space/area. Nothing worse than having to shuffle down the side of the car in a 2-3 foot space in the garage... well, except for having no garage at all, that'd be worse.

Ooh thats going to give you a great space :)

Are you keeping the original garage door - a neighbour of ours has recently had his door replaced with one that looks like that, but actually opens like a door - split 2/3 1/3, so when he wants to just go in garage, opens it up like a door (1/3 section) and so easy to get now - I'm seriously considering swapping ours for this type...

Yeah I hope so, my M3 is pretty long so I think I'll be parking at an angle to allow me to work 360 degrees around it.

No I hate that garage door, I'm having a roller shutter fitted along with a matching larger one the other side

Great progress bud and I'm looking forward to seeing how this progresses :)

SO much better use of that space on your land - from useless (imo lol!) garden, to what it should be (again imo) garaging :D
