The 1850s Garage

Due to zoning laws knocking it down does not seem to be an option.

It's large. Also Dark and very old with updated siding and roof.

What's the problem with it? Why can't you use it for ... something ... not necessarily a garage to store your car.

Attach some furring strips, and put up paneling. Is it structuraly unsound? You could easily electrify by running surface conduit. I bet if it collapsed and took out a vehicle that homeowner's insurance or comprehensive would cover it, especially if both are from the same carrier.

"The conclusion is thus inescapable that the history, concept, and wording of the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as its interpretation by every major commentator and court in the first half-century after its ratification, indicates that what is protected is an individual right of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner."

From the NYSRPA v Bruen "Today, we decline to adopt that two-part approach. . . . Despite the popularity of this two-step approach, it is one step too many. Step one of the predominant framework is broadly consistent with Heller, which demands a test rooted in the Second Amendment's text, as informed by history."

I'm sure you can do something with it. Check with code enforcement and see what your options are. You might have to do one wall at a time or some combination of adding support and leaving original in some spots.

1850s? Pfaw! In the UK or France that would be considered a new garage.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

my thought is it could all be stripped back out without any significant permanent changes to the structure. When you have a classic structure, antique furniture, or even a Dusenberg, you kind of owe it to history to be a thoughtful steward.

Is this the 'cheap house?'

Depends on how it's attached to the rest of the structure. Is the 'roof' part of a floor in the house, or are the walls part of the house foundations? If so, it's a huge amount of work if you can't put up a modern garage as an addition.

There are apps to 3D scan and generate a floorplan/3D model.
