Yeah, itís almost 4m wide so no issue about knocking the doors.

Will potentially look at changing the door once I can afford to eat again haha!

The heaters are night storage so will only be on in the winter if I am working away on the car. Best of both worlds.

The floor is concrete underneath so possibly just rip up the laminate and paint the floor.

No houses to the rear (for now.......), looking over the valley. Roll on summer for car washing and beers in the garden

Garage is currently a mess with dozens of boxes but I changed all the blown spotlights with LED ones, itíll do for now and should provide a good level of light to show paint defects etc etc

Make sure you do the floor painting properly and go for epoxy. Otherwise, it'll start peeling off

very pleased for you, fella - that's a fine space. My house was built in 1998 and the garage can't comfortably get my mk3 Focus RS in it! Room for a Fiesta and smaller but not for a medium family hatch! I believe newly built houses have garages that are even smaller!

Will do, thanks for the heads up. Need to wait for warmer weather before ripping up the laminate flooring.

New build garages shouldnít be called such anymore, maybe indoor sheds?!

Our new build (Aug 2017) has a decent size single garage, inside dimensions are 7 metres x 3 metres, plenty of room. I understood that more recently building regs required proper size garages rather than the older broom cupboard jobbies ?

Building Regulations will vary from area to area....eg
Monmouthshire Coucil state since 2013 that....
"Garages shall have minimum clear internal dimensions of 3.0m x
6.0m, as recommended in Manual for Streets (Appendix A note 3). Smaller
garages will only be permitted in exceptional extenuating circumstances, e.g.
additions to existing dwellings with limited curtilage. "
"The preferred width for single garage doors is 2.35m; the minimum acceptable
width is 2.25m. "
"The Monmouthshire Parking Standards and this guidance will apply to all new
residential developments in Monmouthshire. "
