    Nice :).

    I know that India is 12 time zones different from California due to work meetings, so late meetings occur:cool:.

    So you’d be somewhere in between. But the modified evidence was an attempt at internet humor but with a poor choice of subject rebuked by the OP;).

    So blank posts are welcome(y).

    I assumed it was a huge garage - with a semi-detached bedroom and kitchenette:eek::eek:.

    Off topic, but would it make sense to have the beach sand shower be part of the heated portion of the garage (perhaps by putting a wall in front of it), so you wouldn't have to winterize it?

    That will be up to the architect making the official plans.

    i forgot to winterize my outdoor shower one year, and my neighbor had to call the water company after 40 million gallons of fresh water polluted the ocean.

    that was a big bill.:unsure:

    but you're there year round, won't be an issue. i packed up and left, had a senior moment with the shower, which was literally outside, not in a garage. and unheated in delaware is different than cape cod.

    New year, so new avatar photo. I visit the storage garage every few weeks just to check on things. I'm being as patient as I can...

    Might need to change your profile post as the garage is elusive these days:(.

    Happy new year though(y).

    Feels like my poor Firebrid is turning into a "Barn Find" car. There just wasn't anywhere else to put all of this stuff!
