    I wish I had space. I use a cover for many reasons.
    1. Brushing (or rather squeezing) past it to access my consumer unit.
    2. It's often used as a temporary storage shelf when removing things from the Freezer.
    3. Keeps off dust.

    As you can see it is tight and full of many other things not meant to be there including me.

    Wasn’t always in the situation I am now garage-wise, Malc, used to have to climb out of the roof to get out of the car in the garage! Just got a bit lucky and have a particularly understanding wife. This is our original house and original garage:

    We’re right on the fields so spoke to our local friendly farmer who sold me a patch of land 5 times the size of our original plot for £3k. New land is bordered in red:

    Asked my wife if she minded me putting a “smallish garage” on there which she agreed to........so I did:

    Ok, it’s about the size of our house but I did tell her I hadn’t specified exactly what I meant by “smallish”. She noticed on the plans it had an upstairs that was marked ‘storage’ and asked what I would store up there. At this point I think she gave up

    So you just need a farmer who frankly doesn’t need the money and has so much land the odd half acre going makes absolutely zero difference to him and a very understanding wife

    I've got two garages - one is a large-ish normal garage (i.e. fits a 5 series estate, plus other junk), and this is my other garage. It's an old sorting office, so has a sink, running water, central heating and a toilet - magic

    The two cars at the front can get out on their own, the car at the back (currently the 550) can't get out without moving the other two - hence it's only used for winter storage. The 550 lives in the first garage in the summer, and the 5 series either lives at the back of the second garage, or on the drive if I'm needing it.

    Bit of a faff to have to move cars to get at others, but no space/land to do anything about it sadly

    1/2 acre for £3k....bloody hell...land our way is about £20k an acre now.

    Unless off course you have land adjacent to Dyson's new electric car facility, and then you might as well order that 488 up!!

    Nope, our land is adjacent to Dyson’s farm - Beeswax Dyson Farming. In fact I walk on his estate most days

    From the top of the steps up the outside of the garage I look out over his estate:

    To be fair, her house has a conservatory, the car’s house doesn’t. It’s not like I’m giving the car preferential treatment or anything..........

    Lovely view

    Dyson has/is redeveloped a couple of hangers near us, which are well tucked away and bought the runway to develop his electric car. Apparently he is also buying up all the land around so nobody can snoop. Fair enough if you can; also good for us and it means it wont get developed on.

    Isn't he something like the 2nd biggest land owner in the Uk after Queenie? Apparently he is also a Ferrari owner, so maybe he would lend CS his track for some fun
