    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:

    Id be excited about this - play your cards right and you could also make the rear of the property more secure too with the build. The wider door on the left is a great idea, no point in having another narrow traditional door, too restrictive. Keep the pics coming.

    Good stuff, can't imagine life without a garage! Fitting a roller door, surely means it needs to have thiner slats therefore not as well insulated as a sectional door?

    Looking good mate but bit of advice, keep the toilet!! It will be a god send for when you or your mates are working on cars and dont have to trot through the house while your covered in crap. Also handy for washing hands etc without worry to much about dirty water going everywhere.
