Believe me, I feel damn lucky to have this new garage. I've dreamed of having my own garage/workshop for a very, very long time. Some men dream of having their own private jet, or a yacht. I'm happy just to have a place to install tire plugs without getting rained on.
The old one that was on this property when I bought it was the same size as yours. Mine was a total piece of crap, though, probably 50 or 60 years old, and needed to get thrown in the bush. Actually, my old garage was more like a bunch of garbage, sort of piled into the shape of a garage.
Plus I think it was built on an old indian burial ground -- and you know how that goes.
I've seen bigger containers of kerosene around, like at Princess Auto or Peaveymart. We don't have TSC here. I'm pretty sure a jerry can of jet fuel would be cheaper, though. It's almost identical to kerosene. In fact I've heard they have to throw away the fuel left in the hoses after they load a plane, because of the risk it may be contaminated with moisture, or something. But I'm sure they must put it to some use. That would add up to a lot of wasted jet fuel over time. Maybe they use it for cleaning ... or heating their garages?!
If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
