    Yep I went over the top too, rather the paint the floor, tiled it (dusty garage floors awful for keeping a car), and cuts worked out perfect (almost no cuts) so we had a few spare packs left which we made a feature wall with.....finished the walls with Acrylic PVC Sheets, everything just wipes down, hey ho, no such ting as over the top, very pleasant place to spend time. Love any over the top garage, don't understand why anyone wastes this space with junk.....

    Wow........ another fantastic space...... I wish I had the creativity and the time to do something like that in mine. Maybe there’s money in a business designing and creating these garages, and you and Mike could get together and sell designs/ideas for people, there must be a market for it.

    For most of us, ending the drive is the end of the fun, whereas you guys probably look forward to getting back, the doors opening, and driving into those spaces, perfectly aligned of course. I’d probably sleep in a garage if it looked as nice as those!

    If I thought there was enough money in it, I'd give up work tomorrow and start a business doing it!

    I think in the USA you may be able to make a living doing it but not here in the UK!!!!

    I like making and creating things...Have a look at my Instagram for some of my little projects!

    to be honest, to put the cost of the cars into perspective and the fact that a garage is a genuine usable space in a home, I don’t know why more don’t convert into a nice space, especially if you are going to spend time in there, I could probably fit garages for less than people would expect, Michael are you in !

    I have some good lads who really enjoyed doing the garage as they were car enthusiats and had some space to work in, usually they fit out bathrooms kitchens extensions etc and are always constrained for space, they simply loved working on this.

    Hi Michael,

    Could I ask how your garage floor is holding up?

    I'm edging towards epoxy, after a previous peeling experience with paint!

    Thanks ;)

    Amazing space, I personally like the wood pile. It’s honest and sometimes it’s nice to see a garage being used well as a garage. Not expecting tins of paint near your beloved but the wood one could imagine is for a pizza oven etc!!! Looking at that garage I wouldn’t think it was in the UK!!!
