Any way of adding kitchen counter space... not seeing much meal prep area.
6ft is plentiful for my needs
Thanks, it looks good!
What are the plans for garage outfitting? Love the copious lighting. Plumbed air? 220V outlets? Work benches? My dream garage would have stainless steel work surfaces with drains for oil, full Lista cabinetry, outlets every 2', air compressor outside in shed, I could go on and on. I'm jealous.
Would be cool to line the roof with solar and make the house stand alone independent with battery storage
Since you are selling this place already, I am going to call first dibs!
I have all the above now in a stand alone shop, this will duplicate in the new garage.
I basically combined house with garage, reduced living space by over 50%, and diminished maintenance costs and time.
I’ll let you know in a few years !
What is the square footage of the living space? I'm sure you posted it somewhere back in this thread, but I'm trying to do actual work, at work, and read this at the same time. :)
I was renting a place with about 1,300 sq ft of living space, and it was plenty for me. I could have maybe used less.
That's a great size. We're in 1190 and we use the unfinished master bedroom as a shop/storage room. We have just a few pieces of furniture so the rest of the house is wide open. This may be the result of living for two years in 198 square feet.
Excellent work. It's a great project and very well thought out.
How much room does a can opener require anyway?
Mine fits in the silverware drawer ...................... I still use a manual wind type !
Huba huba Don. Just read through the whole thread. I may have a pending job that moves from 7000 feet in the mountains of New Mexico to NE Kentucky. Building codes there are easy and land is cheap. My significant other lives there now and I grew up there so 2 homes to sell and possibly build a garadedominimum. I have thought about this for many years. 50 X 100 is bigger than needed but never too much space.
Great thread and makes the grey matter go whizzing. I have friends next to Sipapu Ski area in northern NM who built a massive garage with minimal indoor living. Couch and kitchen is open inside. They live in a large 5th wheel pulled by a 4 door Frieghtliner and live very large.
Great contributions to this thread, please keep posting on the final portions of your casa.
My view of the Sandia Mountains....
Paving day has arrived, and the first car lift is ready to go up !
Same here. When I moved out on my own two years ago, I picked up an old stamped steel one at the dollar store. Served me well.
That being said, the first can I had to open in my own place is when I realized I had no can opener. Then I remembered getting a P-38 opener at that Overland whale foreskin rally up in Flagstaff the year before. I dug it out of my camping gear and used that a few times before making the trip to the dollar store.
Closer to the road than I had envisioned.
The photos are kinda deceiving, it’s 145’, but a small secondary road. The pad area just in front of garage is 3,500 sq ft.
Enough for a basketball court with a 3 point line.
Looks great! I would be mounting a basketball net beside the edge of that awesome parking pad and putting up a little private property sign at the end of the driveway to prevent any dimwits from stopping in for an oil change. Or an electric gate with remote control.
Congrats! I can see doing the same thing if the wife ever gets smart and leaves me.
