Default I have a Garage!!! :)

Back in April my gf and I started the process of buying our first house.

And after a wait that seems like forever, we finally got the keys and moved in this past weekend.

Now... is it wrong to be more excited about the garage than the house itself?! Don't get me wrong, the house is perfect and exactly what we wanted but after working on bikes out of a 6x4ft shed for the last 2 and half years the thought of a owning a garage has made me a very happy boy

So I've gone from this...



To this...





In need of some bike wall mounts, racking and a workbench but il get there eventually.

Cant wait to get stuck in to the next build knowing I won't have to wheel it in and out of that bloody shed like I had to with the SV!

Lucky you! My next house has GOT to have a garage.

Is that a window at the back?!

That was exactly my thinking

Yeah its a window. I installed the blind before i moved my bike in. I've got some frosted window tint too for the doors. I wouldn't usually have bothered but until i can install a taller fence, you'd be able to see into the garage from the road.

That sofa looks like a real 1970s item!

Lots of room in that garage for more project builds.

It's too tidy to be a garage!

Hope it's got central heating, if not get it plumbed in

Good sized garage too! Ours isn't wide enough to fit a car.

Never had a garage where you could fit a car in in any house where I've had one
