I'll skip the drama, and start over.
I started in May of '07 in building a garage on my lot next to my house.
Originally I wanted to put in a second story for some office space, theater room etc. The city nazis put an end to that with their height restrictions, so I decided to do the next best thing, build down.
One of the main benefits of this, at least from a HT perspective is I got a theater room that is actually UNDER the driveway. Meaning that all walls, floors, ceilings (except one wall) are concrete.
Just a warning, I didn't take the time to just
put in the theater pics here, so you will have to endure the pictures of the entire project
First, we started by clearing out the RV pad that ran along the side of the house.
Then start digging a big hole
Here you can see the tunnel to the main house
AH! Found the gas line.. I'm sure this whole project is OSHA approved.
