This week in the Examiner, Kieran McCarthy of KMC Homes discusses the best type of garage you could build.
In the past (I grew up in the 80’s) cars were very different to what they are now for two main reasons. Firstly, they used to rust (paint technology is actually a remarkably complex science) so many people used to bring their cars indoors when parked-up to protect them from the prevailing acid rain of the era. Secondly, car engines were much simpler, so many car owners would service their own car and in fact this may have spawned a further spin-off industry of garage hobbyists for crafts such as woodwork and the like.
Today however things are very different. Gone are the days when people bring their cars indoors at night and, unless you own an old car, it is unlikely that you have the tools or diagnostic kits to service your car at home.
