Back to the ‘Hood (and more garage space for Brian Cone)

Who needs more garage space?  Well, all of us!  That’s what I was thinking when I was driving by our old neighborhood in Beaverton and saw a for sale sign in front of a house.  We built a house one block away from it in 1986 and had lived in the neighborhood for almost 20 years.  We then build a new house less than 2 miles down the same street less and lived there for 12 years.  It had a 3-car garage but I wanted more space.

The house for sale in our old neighborhood had a 1730 sq ft daylight basement with a garage door on the side street and it had a fishing boat and gear in it.  Very plain and utilitarian with no walls, just a storage area. 

For sale?  Maybe I should check the listing……..

Wow!  The last owner completely finished the basement!  Sheetrocked walls, with a large shop, storage area, bathroom, art studio, big screen TV and surround sound system, and it held 5 Sunbeams (Alpines and Tigers).  With an extra wide garage on the main level, it was up to a 7-car garage house!

Immediately, I decided that I must buy this house.  And I was able to convince Wife that it was a good idea to move.

What a great garage!  I remodeled the art studio into a man cave and updated the bathroom.

Recently, 3 CCA members from the New Jersey Chapter used my garage to prepare their E39’s (a Auberline sedan and a white wagon) that they bought for a cross-country trip back home.  The garage perfectly suited their needs.  Good to help fellow CCA members, and to have the garage used to help them.

I invite you to attend the next BMW garage tour at my house on May 19th.  Please arrive between 10:00-10:30.  Address is 6402 SW 155th Avenue in Beaverton.  Please park in the driveway on 155th, and on SW Ivy and SW 154th Place.

Shortly before 11:30, we will depart for lunch at the Cruise In Country Diner http://cruiseincountry.com/ (9785 SW River Rd, Hillsboro).  The café has a limit of 20 people for our group.

Please register soon.  See you there!
