Thanks for the comments fellas,the cars all have pintos in them, some are show cars others are fast road cars,as for the spec of the garage it was a design in my head, i never had any drawings for it, i just wanted something to go with my house.

Great garage! I like the attention to detail - rafter tails, window stools, dutch doors... What's upstairs? I see the staircase but it doesn't look like there are any windows?

Now I guess I can add another stop to my tour of Ireland when I come visit! Thats a nice little garage you got there with some top cars! Only one question.. you live in the countryside? I've never seen anyone in Ireland short of a sheep farmer with land to build a garage that nice! Just wondering... seriously nice garage.

Oh and what do you got going on upstairs?

Beautiful work sir!
It's nice to see things outside of North America. While we all have our own ideas and each implementation is unique in its own right, there are certain things that are a common thread throughout most garages here.

I can honestly say yours stands apart. It has that cottage/pub/old world craftsman flavor. Nice.

Wow! Nice place.

Where are you in Ireland? My brother and his family moved over there a couple of months ago. I'm not sure to what town off hand. He is a pilot for CityJet. Aside from being away from home, the whole family loves it there.

graceloc, Very nice shop! I like how it looks outside. Not like a shop but a nice home.
One question I have is why do you have two man doors on the same wall just a few feet apart? At first I thougt they went into different rooms but from the inside I see they both enter the same room?

Gracelock My DIL is from Tyrone. Great looking house and garage. DIL's uncle has a petrol station close to the border. Leo Nugent is his name, maybe you have been in there.
