Garage: a building for parking or storing one or more motor vehicles. How many people really do use it for this? Judging from all my neighbors that have garages and park outside… I think this can’t be the case. It’s my impression that garages these days are mostly used for storage and convenient access to the house. What do you use your garage for? My father had a garage for most of my life. I do remember once, I think it was when I was in high school, that I actually saw a car parked in there. The rest of the time it was a workshop, craft shop, and mainly a storage area. Ever since I bought my first house and had my own garage, I have been determined to use it for a very novel concept of… wait for it…. parking my cars. Cars last longer when you can store them in the garage during the winter, and it will also save you time of cleaning the snow off the car during the rare time when we do have snow. When you are looking for your new house, take into consideration what you will be doing with the garage and make sure you have the room for your cars and desires.
