Having a garage is one of the most abused privileges I have encountered in all my years of owning a house. I have one that is huge – a double width and slightly longer than standard. By rights I should be able to put my car in the garage at night. Of course, this plan of action is hopeless, there isn’t a cat’s chance of doing that. I found this out when thinking I’d need to do so when several guests were coming to stay, I wanted my car out of the way to free up parking space outside. I have a work bench at the top end, a huge metal filing cabinet next to that and a mass of junk objects parked in all the other areas. This is not an efficient way to live and plans are afoot to make my home – especially the garage, much more efficient and safet to live in.
