was that a ATL when the 911 hit it?
I been thinking of buying or building a warehouse/hanger style house with an upstairs living area and parking down below. It would be cheaper than building a home and much more functional. now there wouldnt be heat/AC in the shop area as most of the HVAC would be running to the house portion but it would still be better than an old shade tree.
I was very, very seriously looking at buying an old brick building downtown (you can get 20k square feet of 2 story building for <50k). Leaving the outside alone other than basic repairs and making the lower level a garage and the upper level an apartment. The centerpiece was going to be a drive on lift that I could use to lift the car from the first floor to an area on the second floor with windows you could see from in the apartment.
The stopping point was that all the buildings that were in my budget to buy + restore were on the edge of the shady parts of town, or way out in the country with an hour drive to work, and while I don't mind living in the shady parts of town, I wasn't keen on raising a family there.
Anyway, threadjack over, it seems a bit pricey to me, but I've never priced garage space. That's certainly a huge amount of space.
currently in the midst of closing on a house, 4 bedroom 1800 sqft house, 2.5car garage, 1.2 acres of land, 28' pool, and with a 15 year loan its still under $1k per month including mortgage, insurance, taxes.
I imagine it more depends on what your job situation looks like for the near future. Are you going to stay there for a long time or could you wind up hopping around in a few years?Rent here in CO is insane. For a 3 bdrm house with a 2 car garage you are looking around $1,500 ABSOLUTE MINIMUM
