Building my dream garage (and house)

Hi everyone. This is my first post here However I've been following DW for several years.

Back in 2016 when I was 24 (I'm 27 now), me and my girlfriend "ordered" our first house. Our plot was large enough to fit a 72 m2 garage in extension of the house, which would be 166 m2, with a covered terrace in addition.

I'm a perfectionist and love to detail and maintain our cars (pictures of these will follow later) It was therefore important to me, that I could have pretty much all of my detailing-gear in the garage as well as my other tools, 2 and 3-piece alloys etc. Having my own garage has been a dream of mine for a long time, and in the fall of 2016 the work began.

The external dimensions of the garage would be 8,39 metres long and 8,57 metres wide.

My plan with this thread is to post pictures of the drawings, the "build", show my detailing collection and my passion for cars

Pictures to come

Looks like a great space. Where are you located? I assume not in the UK...

But, Christ, the rest of the house flows badly.

I'm located in Denmark.

Everything flows as it should ;-) We would say the same with houses in the UK. This is just how the style is here.

Holes were made for the scissor lift:
