When you have cars with sticker prices well into the six-figure range, a basic garage wont do. The Secret Canyon estate comes complete with a ball-room worthy automotive showroom. Sports cars not included.
Colletti says growing moss in a terrarium can be a challenge, because there's a lot of moisture and little air circulation. She prefers open-topped containers. Climacium americanum (commonly called lobe-leaved tree moss) and Hedwigia ciliata (fringed hoar-moss) work well in any kind of container, she says. Leucobryum glaucum (pincushion moss) and Cladonia rangiferina (reindeer moss, actually a lichen) are best used in open containers. In this image, sheet moss surrounds other small plants.
The pattern of the stone on the car barn's exterior closely resembles a building on the Franklin Delano Roosevelt estate. The Springwood estate, located in Hyde Park, N.Y., served as inspiration for this structure. Many mockups were erected and knocked down before finding the perfect blend of four different stones.
Flat-backed feed buckets aren’t just for feeding horses. They are perfect for storing car wash supplies right on the wall. Hang using a picture hanger for easy transport from the garage to the driveway.
The Solis Two Porsche Drive hotel adjacent to the Porsche Experience Center, has become the go-to destination for visitors checking out the driving experience at Porsche. Part of the booming city rising in the shadow of the airport, the "aerotropolis" of Hapeville next to Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport—the world's busiest passenger airport—is just 20 minutes from downtown Atlanta and has a lot to recommend it for both car-crazy adults and their child companions. The 8-story hotel itself overlooks—at key vantage points—the Porsche Experience Center racetrack. The rooftop Overdrive Lounge offers the best public view by far of both Porsche and the airport and there are also 9 track-view suites. The rooms themselves are insulated with triple-pane windows from flight noise. For transportation-obsessed kids, this is a once-in-a-lifetime convergence of planes, trains (train tracks pass right in front of the hotel) and automobiles all viewable in close proximity to the property (there's even a Delta Flight Museum close-by for flight fans). For quick and easy access to downtown Atlanta, I-75 is in close proximity to Solis. You can sit on the outside patio of the in-house restaurant Apron and watch planes come in for landings and eavesdrop on visiting German Porsche execs relaxing after a day of work at Porsche's North American headquarters. To continue the Porsche tie-in, two Porsche Cayennes offer VIP transportation to the airport and auto artwork abounds: there are car murals in the lobby and car motif art in the 214 guest rooms. There is even an in-house Porsche themed gift shop to take home a souvenir.
“For a longer-lasting terrarium, give your plant lots of room to grow,” Rose says. “If the plant’s roots are crowded in the pot it was purchased in, pot it up into the largest container that still fits inside the vase.”
Designs were nearly complete when the homeowners raised concerns about the existing below-grade garage. The driveway was so steep that they had never parked a car in it. They decided to fill the driveway, bury the existing garage and construct a new three-car garage to be built on a diagonal to the existing house. The angle creates a connecting space that becomes the laundry room and mudroom, providing access to the family room, garage and rear yard.
