When we bought our new-build house in 1997, I asked the builder 'had they ever installed a car pit in the garage?' 'No' he replied, 'but anything is possible.'
A few days later, the final quote came in. Now bear in mind this is 1997, when petrol cost just 58p a litre.
£5k + VAT. What to dig a hole in the floor, build a temporary timber box for the mould, add reinforcing steel mesh and then back-fill with quick-drying concrete?
Suffice to say... I didn't go ahead... but I've always imagined what if?
