Garage Gets Extension on Life
Don't be fooled by the photo. My garage may look cutesy "ye olden tyme" rustic, but it's really a rotting dank shanty house that smells like burnt mouse heads, spent motor oil, and steaming cat shit. There was a time way back when I was considering pouring both the addition foundation and the new garage foundation at the same time, but I scrapped it for money and time reasons. It's common to break up the pours like that actually. Oftentimes because of space issues - can't always have two giant holes next to eachother or the diggers and trucks have no way to get into the back and nowhere to put all the fill. Mixers can't get back, so you have to have hire a pump to sit in the front yard and boom over the house, and that's another 700 bucks -- there can be a bunch of reasons. It varies job to job, of course. With me, I just don't have the lettuce to do both right now. I don't want to be in a situation where I can't afford a plasterer on the main house because the cash is tied up in the garage foundation, know what I mean?
