Third garage or separate garage

The block I'm interested in is 21m wide, so it is wide enough for a triple garage. However due to the orientation of the block (north facing rear yard), I…

Thanks for that Michelle, a bold choice, although I think hubbie is going to need some convincing to put orange on the walls. I'll let you know how I…
