Looks like the garage is built directly on the lawn? Nothing like feeding the termites your new garage! :-)

It looks like they didn't want to waste any money on extra studs in the wall either!

They better keep the doors shut when the wind blows, or it will blow over.

Well, it looks like it is built out of red cedar so it wont rot immediately and as a bonus, the car will smell "extra blankets out of the closet" fresh. Nice bump strip- that probably kept the car from creeping forward on cold mornings.
Unfortunately-by the condition of the windshield- it looks like some pigeons have already claimed the rafters as their roost!

A certain hoarder......er, collector that I know found a very similar garage and bought that garage and the contents.





It was on eBay a couple years ago. Not sure if it sold or not. It was quite interesting. A low mileage totally original car and the garage that it lived in. It is at first glance a 1914 T, but after looking at all the particulars it is actually a very late 1914, showing some 1915 features.











The spark plugs have been replaced and a battery horn snuck in there.
