    Default For those of you who need a new garage










    The garage and the house that comes along with it are for sale. The wife is well looked after as the house has a two story dressing room and shoe room. As an aside I know one forum member here has a wife with a shoe room bigger than the second bedroom in my condo.

    Sadly the garage and house are located in Florida, land of the straight and flat. But for those who have the money, such as Microsoft millionaires, HR flunkeys, psychologists, vets, attorneys, etc, a measly $20M is a drop in the bucket.

    I took the virtual tour. I think this place would be more than adequate. The game room, which looks like it was inspired by Dave and Busters, has side by side virtual racing machines. That alone makes me want this place. Annual taxes are only 6 figures. I think I'd use that to insist of the county naming the high school after me (Kitcat High). It doesn't say anything about living quarters for the staff needed to keep this place going. Maybe I could use that as a way to get them to knock a mil or 2 off the price?

    Wow, that is strong. Looked it up, current owner is Donald Wallace, who started LazyDays RVs.

    when you start staffing, put my name in the hat for the garage guru.

    Wow, it is only 1.25 hours South of our current home. Sadly, my spouse is tired of cooking and cleaning and with the acquisition costs, I don't think we could swing any domestic help? Thankfully, I am not that crazy about some of the cars in the "garage" so feel less sad than I could have.

    With 26 bathrooms, domestic help is probably necessary.
