Garage Shopping


It's not every day you can go garage shopping instead of garage sale shopping. In a couple years we'd like to have one built. Time to get up to speed on what the options are and how much we need to budget for. A local dealer is based in a small town 20 miles north of here. I've wanted to spend an afternoon in the town, anyway. Holton has the traditional town square in the middle with retailers around it. A few places to eat. A quilt shop for Wilma. My only regret is that they DID have a nice coffee shop. Not anymore. We ate lunch there, too. We like local non-chain restaurants, where the locals eat and talk to each other. This place didn't disappoint us, either.

Whenever we take road trips that's exactly the kind of place we like to stop in - especially for the biscuits and gravy!

Wonderful entry John
....I was just working on an eatery place I love that isn't "famous" so I liked that part a lot--so well done sketches and lore--two garages would be good as one could be used as an exterior attic space---everyone should have two houses for this reason.

Sorry about the coffee shop John. I went to New York on the Chinese Special. I could not find an open nice coffee shop anywhere. I walked the entire street of Bowery St from China town. Wound up at McDs on 35th and not way to juice my iPhone. The only open Starbucks-- Never found but two and both closed. My brother purchased a Storage Garage set. You pay for them to come a pour the concrete. They leave all the fixtures for you. I think they even do any electricity and plumbing you would want.
