If it's just for the summer, you can get a canvas bike shelter fairly cheap. But also pretty easy to build something.

Costco had one very similar to that about a month or 2 ago. It's still on their website as well.

He's the only person on the entire street who actually uses his garage for his car.
I keep two cars, a Gold Wing, a motorcycle trailer, a lawnmower, etc., plus some junk, in my 24x26 garage.

It’s possible, people.

Good LORD people who drag their heels with each step as they pace and walk around the office. They're akin to mouth breathers and computer screen touchers and they can all piss off.

I think Costco has a similar item. If I recall, was a lot less than $2000.

Couldn't two men and a truck take the shed away? Or bust the locks?

If they had a truck and a friend they wouldnt need to steal bicycles.

It really does puzzle me. My truck doesn't fit but I manage to fit a car, motorbike and a small trailer in the garage. Yet the people across the street can't even get a Ford Focus in their garage. They park one vehicle in the middle of a two car driveway, and 5 more vehicles on the street.

We have a shuffler in our office. I want to shout "Pick up your feet!" every time they walk by.

Its just like when people where flip flops to the office in the summer, or sandals without a heel strap.


It makes me want to murder them.

I guess two men and a truck could also come into my yard and kick down the door to my garage, and just open it from the inside and cart off all my stuff. But I have security cameras.

As far as padlocks go, you can actually get some pretty decent ones.

I think with that shed it's actually supposed to be bolted down pretty good. Maybe even to the wall. More effort than just walking over and picking it up from both sides.

Could always just throw some bricks in the bottom for weight too if you're really that worried about people picking it up and walking away

Wow a thanked and quoted post from the master of gear grinders, the one and only Sliver, in the gear grinders thread. This feels like I have completed a CP rite of passage

Yes, well, the next one is known as the MMF. Get yourself banned and try to get back in!

Cars are actually physically bigger than they used to be.

Not so much bigger one couldn’t make it work, but take up more space overall. I have a 2 car garage that I could maybe squeeze both vehicles in but it wouldn’t be comfortable. Difference is that the street in front of my house has loads of room so I can’t imagine anyone cares.

My garage has 2 vehicles (Escape and Fusion), bike and a work bench to do all my golf club repairs.

I find actually using the garage to park your vehicles and wealth are correlated. Causation? Who knows, but they're correlated. (And I'm not even talking about 3-car garage folks.)

Many years ago I recall looking at a new home we were considering. Out of the city, decent sized lot. Nothing too huge.

But a 5 car garage. 3 wide and 2 deep for the most part. That would have been glorious.
