By what method did you find the garage?

I've been searching for something round here, but can't find anything
of a sensible size.

They dont seem to make industrail units smaller than 1250sq feet (500
would be plenty for me), and everyone who is selling or letting barns
round here wants to do it as all or nothing (so i can have 7500 sq
feet or nowt!).

Bad move now they realise that you can pay, the cost will rise at
the same rate as a NASA rocket
what you should have done is moaned about the price saying that you
have to keep a family of 12 kids and 3 wives plus all the in-laws and
your income from your main job is only "2 bob and a conker" they will
of course ignore any other income and then they would have given it
you for 4 quid a week
