It’s been 20 years since Marvin Baxter first started dreaming about having his own garage. We’re not talking about a traditional attached garage, jammed with Christmas decorations and dusty exercise equipment. No, we’re talking about a real man garage.
Marvin wasn’t completely sure whether he was financially ready for his man garage, but he started checking out his options. We were able to put Marvin in touch with one of our recommended lenders. Marvin was delighted to find that he could take out a loan that would combine both his dream garage and his mortgage. The lender agreed to match the low interest rate Marvin had on his existing mortgage.
Marvin chose the 26 x 40 ft Ulrich Two Story Carriage House with a custom 8 ft lean to. On the first floor, Marvin has enough space to park his truck, Mustang, and Harley. In one corner he has a full bathroom with a shower, in case he gets coated with grease while restoring an old car or motorcycle. He already has a car lift installed, and he hopes to add a motorcycle lift later.
After Marvin retires, the upstairs area will be a woodworking shop. For now, it’s his home office. Marvin recently insulated his building with spray foam. As a result, he’s been able to keep the 950 sq ft upstairs area pretty comfortable with just a small electric heater.
Marvin enjoyed working with Ulrich Garages, from the first visit at our headquarters all the way through to completion. “I would recommend Ulrich to anybody,” he says.
