I'm about to embark on the first major project on our house in years -- we're going to finally build a garage. Quell your excitement! I know garages are probably the least exciting project to undertake on a house (next to fixing the roof) but I've actually found the process so far pretty inspiring. Perhaps that's because I'm thinking of the garage as less a place to store a car and more as a place to live out all my studio and garden fantasies. We're in the very early stages of the project. We've signed a contract with an architect and we're starting to visualize what this garage might look like.
