Here's something I can't believe, Mike Holmes: that you would take away a homeowner's garage and, as if that wasn't bad enough, prevent them from parking closer than 25 feet by building a low wall near the end of their driveway. The impetus for the former decision was due to air intrusion from the garage, which Mike pointed out was due to leaks in the construction, duct work, and lack of a man door-- items that Mike has fixed before, but inexplicably refused to do on this project. The impetus for the latter must have had something to do with the cistern below the driveway-- but this was never explained. So now the proud new owners will have to sprint from their vehicle 25 feet in a thunderstorm to get to the door, trying to make sure they don't miss the narrow opening in the low wall and flip over it, garnering a concussion when they land head-first on the lovely brickwork Mike's crew laid down. And this was done for safety?
Lots of great solutions for the water intrusion problems-- not so much for the garage.
