We’ll be the first to admit that part of the reason we chose this trend was to have an excuse to feature some cool cars here on Modular Musings. We’re also highlighting it because it ties in nicely with the larger trend toward smaller homes (and smaller garages).
An increasing number of home owners – and not just the car enthusiast type – are installing parking lifts (or parking elevators) in their garages in an effort to create more space for things like the ’58 Corvette in the photo above. As HGTVpro.com noted, “Not only do parking lifts look awesome, but their purpose is pretty smart, too. By building up, you don’t need to build out, meaning you use less land.”
A set up like the one above will require 10 to 12 foot ceilings – a perk not found in most garages – but it costs a lot less than you might think. For somewhere around $3,000, you too can be the proud owner of a parking lift. Porsche not included.
