    One of the most creative garages I have seen to date. I applaud your creativity and drive to retain the originality of the place while dramatically transforming it.

    ....shoulda made one next to the stairwell....hmmmmm...lol

    I've slept the past 3 nights in the cabin and it is beyond belief! I seriously put in about 110 HARD hours myself, deep cleanings as final work was done, the result was worth it.

    Due to my insane inability to sell anything, I still have too much (George Carlin STUFF), so after preparing for 3 cars in the garage, gonna have to start out with only 2 :(

    ....but as soon as some of you guys wise up and buy some of my cool shizzle, I can move another car inside :D

    I will try and post photos, but somehow Starbucks coffee found its way inside my iPhone today and the dang thing isn't working :(

    Had a nice group of fresh photos that may have sizzled away when I fried my phone....aaaaaarrrrrrggggghhhhh.

    some fresh pics....I am really enjoying living here, absolute magical place! :)

    inside the garage where my Alfa wheel obsession lives :D

    Instead of 3 cars in the garage, I went with two so I could add a desk and chairs, workout bench, loads of extra storage shelves, 2nd bedroom literally (armoire, dresser, car library :) )...I will go to 3 cars as winter approaches and I sell some 'stuff'. In the living area, I am keeping it clean and simple, excess can go in the garage which begs for organization still, I'm beat from a very labor intensive move. As soon as I sell this gorgeous black 930, I am gonna blow out this property with further finishing, landscaping, etc. Sorry to see the super cars go, but Alfa's bring me plenty of joy...especially nice around scenic mountain twisties of Tahoe...

    Turning out awesome. I like the views through the floor. And are you sure junk doesn't go in the garage and cars outside? Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

    Once I get a shed built, I can finally have my garage back. But my truck doesn't fit anyway...
    You've done an awesome job with what you started with. And the views are amazing.

    Hi Mike,

    Where, in Tahoe, are you ? I had a little place in Cedar Flat on the No. Shore back in the mid 70s. It was my 3 1/2 year vacation from the film industry (till the $ ran out), and it was pure heaven for that period.

    As I was moving back to Hollywood Land, my parents were finishing their home in Incline Village. It was a great place for their grown kid and his wife, to come for "mom's home cooked meals".

    But, back to the point of this thread - - I love the work that you're doing on your A Frame Home/Man Cave Garage. Sore point :) - No garage - we sometimes had so much snow on our cars, we didn't know which car was which !! :) As for your 1" thick "snoop window", I love the idea !! :):) Keep up the great work.

    Best of luck with the project.

    Cheers, Hank

    Aloha Hank, nice note, thanks. I am in Brockway, due north, between Crystal Bay and Kings Beach. (2 blocks up from the casinos on north shore is the easiest reference point). I spent 20 years in Incline Village, so chances are we know each other...small place. I never had a garage here in Tahoe all this time, was always renting space for all my cars scattered all over the place,, so having a garage is absolute heaven. Living here has been nothing short of magical....looking out on another sick sunset over the lake right now :)

    These last 2 photos are from Speedboat Beach...my "home' beach, short walk from my cabin.
