Exactly how long does it take you to get a garage built?

I was told this week that I can have a four car w/everything done in 4 weeks. And I have known the guy for 30 years so he knows I can be annoying.

But it is looking good.

Well the foundation is seven ft. above the ground in the rear and there is storage underneath. The walls are adobe brick, which has one of the highest insulation ratings available for residential and commercial structures. The floors have radiant heat and the garage doors are wooden sliders of the hanger type. With that said it is taking quite awhile but I do not care as it is a fixed price that has not, and appears will not, go over the orig. estimate. I would guesstimate March at this rate. The building will house up to six cars and more importantly can be easily and readily converted to a studio or second guest house as plumbing and electrical is all in place. Thinking resale here as there are not that many car collectors out there.

That makes very good sense then. Not "Just" a garage.

Stunning classic, that would be an asset to any serious collection! Waiting for my '76 Eldo Cvt. to be delivered. It was picked up in Alabama from the orig. owner two days ago. Here it is in all its faded glory. Thought I would show before and after pics this time around. $13k. 28k miles. All orig paint.
