No, nothing to do with business.
Maybe with mindset.

I bought an old house over 25 years ago With my wife.
The plan was to live cheap, save money and get a good house than.
One to the other... in the end we renovated the house and planned to safe some money and get a better house anywhere.
But now we have a social network here and we love it. We grew up our kids and the renovation appeared so good, that the house is still good.
When the kids will have their own place in the world And move out, it will be a big house, too.

But: I dreamt of a big garage and it resisted me to spend money and work to that.
So my cars stand in a narrow carport or without anything and I don’t have a workshop to repair or renovate cars.

So now after planing a big garage for years, we decided to build it. Build, with the help of friends, not let it build.

And I don’t want to get a loan for it. Maybe, it will go a bit slower than.

What do you think of that project?
Regarding fastlane philosophy it may be wrong spending money there, as I m still on the slowlane.

Sounds like a cool project. My uncle did something similar a few years ago.

I would use the money to invest in your business. You waited for so long, so why the rush?

Maybe in a one or two years you can build a garage every month with the income from your business.

Well, maybe you are right.
But I m afraid, that money isn’t the issue of my business, but do the right actions.

I think it is good idea, really. You will invest in your own house and avoid paying rent. I also have a house and I want to make landscape project, nowadays it is very simple. For example you can use and save money on materials. By the way there are many other tools and blogs on this site which can help you.

All the place seen behind the cars should get the garage.
The plan is not only to park the Cars, bikes .., but also be able to fix them and do maintenance. Not only for ours.

There was a break while my buddy, who helps me removing the old shed, had to mind his businesses.
But today we had a fun day of going on removing.
Now there is place for the new building.
Now first there are some acts I will not do myself. Big machines are not my favorite.

Ther will be a toilet in our garage. I m thinking about a shower, too. Maybe when my wife wants to get rid of me, I move out to my bikes. ;)

When the concrete base plate is ready, I will first build the bike part. With a bike lift, a workbench and lot of shelfes.

The car part is a bit depending building permit.
It should have some car lifts and lot of space to make a party or so..::)
