Featured RV Garage Plan with Thoughtful Extras – The Garage Plan Shop

RV Garage Plan 024G-0011For those looking to make a getaway on weekends, holidays, or vacations this 2-car garage includes a third bay large enough to park the family RV. The 2-car garage offers a 16’ wide x 8’ tall garage door and 9’ ceiling, while the RV bay’s accommodations include a 10’ wide x 12’ tall garage door and a 13’ ceiling height. However, with these measurements not only does the RV bay allow a place to park an RV or motor home but even allows space for boat storage. Not being limited to only RV and boat owners, the spacious large bay can also be used as a gym space, providing enough room to support several pieces of workout material and equipment. Located above the 2-car garage is a loft allowing space for storage. The amenities of the garage go beyond the interior, as the exterior features a Craftsman style design promising to be a perfect complement to any Craftsman style home. View details about this RV garage plan with loft.

Debunking the Myths of Distracted Driving and Cell Phones – The Garage Plan Shop

Filed under Driving Safety

I recently came across an info-graphic that certainly caught my attention. It was created by the National Safety Council to debunk a few myths about safety when talking on a cell phone while driving. Many of us have the misconception that it is OK for us to talk and drive. However, the info-graphic supports the idea that talking on a cell phone while driving is considered multi-tasking, yet our brains are not capable of multi-tasking. This means the human brain cannot successfully do two “thinking tasks” at one time therefore, making it dangerous to us and others on our roadways when we choose to talk and drive whether with a handheld or a hands-free device. Review the info-graphic for yourself and consider hanging up the phone while you’re behind the wheel.
