also down here in lewes you couldn't even afford to buy the doubble garage with a £500 pound mortgage???
to dear down here but i do know where you are coming from.............
It is difficult to find cheap workshops/garages even round here (Milton Keynes).
10yrs ago, I used to share a small workshop on a farm. An old stable with space for two cars, power and light for £120 a month which was okay.
Then I moved to a house with a double garage and stopped renting. I've grown the fleet so now I have two cars stored on the same farm again @ £60 a month each!
It's hard to say what my girlfriend does for a living...
...She sells sea shells on the sea shore!
