You can have the rest of the house, but the garage is mine. Especially if it's as cool as this one designed by Holger Schubert for a ranch style home in Los Angeles:
It is located on the upper floor of a new addition to a 1953 ranch style home on a down-sloping hillside lot overlooking the western part of Los Angeles. Access is via a driveway bridge separate from the main entrance to the property's motor court. The 1,200 square foot space provides a designated spot for the car and a large open area for a couch, a slide-away TV, a built-in book shelve in front of a large storage room, as well as a small kitchen, a bathroom and a library.
So how do you back the car out without starting it indoors (and fuming up the garage?). By clever use of a ramp:
An area of 8' x 12' is made of sandblasted aluminum grating that is set flush into the concrete floors. It hides a 9' long steel ramp, which the driver raises five inches by remote control to create a slope sufficient for the car to roll out and be started outdoors.
