Why on earth have you put a silly choice like garage in the poll? How can a car go in there, what with the freezer, motorcycle, bikes, old bits of furniture and all the other things that go in a garage.

Get real!

The Free-Polls website thinks I've already voted when I haven't!!

No, some builders don't build them big enough for cars. A Friend near me bought a brand new Bloor home recently with a double detatched garage. He could only just put his Passat in it and close the door - my Rover800 had 1 feet left sticking out!!!!

I only reset it every 24 hrs or so.

As Martyn once wrote:-

"The results may well be skewed by repeat voting, but I work on the assumption that if anyone wants to stuff the poll up, it's their funeral not mine."

Just like yourself, I have edited wot I first wroted.
Poll 29. Parking when at home - L'escargot
When I move house, the size of the garage and the ease of being able to drive into and out of it is a major consideration. I looked at one house where the drive down the side of the house was so narrow that it was absolutely impossible to drive into the garage in a modern car. You might have just managed it in a narrow (Messerschmidt?) bubble car but that's all.

>>One of the first improvements to the 1930s semis and detached houses, in the immediate area, where I live is to convert the garage into living space. The car can live outside, especially if it is a company car.
The large storage facilities sites are proliferating around here.

Sacrilege! Excess people can live outside, but the car goes in the garage! ;-)

Er... I park a car in the garage AND on my drive.

I;'ve never understood the reasoning that goes "I shall fill my garage with useless junk but keep my expensive car on the drive"

But where do you normally (as in most of the time) park it?

In outer West London, storage cost £500 plus a year, as priced this month, for 15 square feet.
When did "garaged" really enhance the value of a S/H car.
Especially if it is a company car then leave it in the drive.
I can cope with frost a few days a year.
My garage has been deleted and part of it is a nice shower room.

You should be able to get back what you paid for it then...:-)

People who have a garage are fortunate - when my (impressively built) 1880s Victorian semi-detached came into being there was obviously no call for them.

There's no room to erect one either, unless it's housed in the back garden and there's an agreement with the neighbour to share the side entries area by knocking the dividing wall down.

Not worth the bother.

I don't have a garage merely by dint of fortune ~ I have one because it's on my "must have" list. If the property hadn't had a garage, I wouldn't have bought it.
