Or move to a house that has a garage. LOL. We moved recently and the garage was a deal breaker if it didn't have one.The house we liked I saw the potential in the garages and did them both up real nice and added climate control and flooring and 24 day maker lighting. I didn't care about the rest of the house once I saw the garages. My wife loved the designer kitchen as she is a gourmet cook. So we were both happy. She has a nice kitchen and I have nice garages. Win win.
I have a garage and if I wasn't a manual person I'd have room but I have too many tools, building supplies and junk and now work related materials and more tools. I have more tools than a mechanic.
I'd have to probably move outside the city and that means too much travel for work and getting supplies for my work. Also the market is nut's the city keeps climbing house values, Over 70K in 10 years! I'll take a look what's out there but but chances are very slim and the neighbors might file complaints when repairing cars. Right now I'm in a perfect spot except for my neighbor felon/welfare/crazy/loud music/tenant who collects junk and built a million sheds and modified the landlord's house with balcony from electoral signs. He stole the neighbor's pipes, building supplies and tools(before it was demolished for a new house), he burglarized my house and he stole my fence!!!
Ah, yeah work ties a person down and the tools of the trade are more important. Your neighbour sounds scary though. That would be enough for me to pack my bags. one time I moved from my house because of a neighbours dog. He kept it chained up outside and the damn thing would bark all day long. I was working shifts back then and try sleeping with constant noise is impossible. Nothing I could do except move. No noise bylaws in our small town at the time. After I moved not even far away. Just in the next block I heard his dog died. LOL. But yeah bad neighbours can be the worst. Years ago when I had my 74 Vette I was in a duplex we rented. Bad neighbours on the other side. Kinda like the show Shameless. That was them. I had a garage there I was allowed to use and they broke into my Vette and stole the after market stereo and speakers I had in it.
I opened a new thread because I think there will be many replies! We have noise bylaws except I have to file an official report so the cops can give out a 250$ fine, if not they just ask him to turn it down. As soon as the police are at the end of the street he turns it back up. Problem is if I fill out the report he can contest it and I'll have to go to court and since he's welfare and a real nut case I'll be there constantly and he'll do more vandalism. I spent many nights sleeping downstairs in the basement because I hear this constant bass, in the bedroom, kitchen, living room with the TV turned on etc. I call the cops and he know he has 45 minutes before they show up so he turns it down and up all day, all night. The cops started to harass me because I called too many times.
He then starts to build more sheds at midnight, sometimes at 3. Then all of a sudden his crack head girlfriend start yelling and insulting at each other. Both of them recently lost their vehicles, probably seized by the police. Seriously she looks like a real zombie, her face wrinkled like Texas chainsaw massacre Edward Gein's masks.
Last year I had enough he made bonfires every other night with left over scraps and the tinder would rise 20 feet in the air. I called the fire department and they were there literally in 4 minutes and hosed it down. They could of fined him but I think he just got a warning.
