Man Builds Hidden Garage In House To Avoid Legal Issues

If you own a house but aren’t allowed to make visible changes to the exterior, integrating a garage within the current design makes a lot of sense.

This video showing the front of this house parting in order to allow an Audi Q5 to exit was posted to Reddit yesterday, and people are already debating the conversion.

All we know is that the house is situated in the small village of Woudsend, which is in the Netherlands, and that once the “garage” doors close, it’s pretty much impossible to tell there’s anything out of the ordinary going on with that property.

In the end, it’s an innovative solution and we’d be really curious to know if the owner can fit more than just one car inside. If you look close around the 50-second mark, it looks as though that Q5 is tucked away pretty far from the exit.

    Man that’s a cool idea 👌🏽

    “Magic” ? hardly. although seems like a good idea, i’m sure it reduced the value of the property quite a bit, just move.

    • KidRed

      You’re right. Having a solution for not parking on the street, or possibly paying to park and not having to deal with your car in the snow would bring down his property value. …smh

        Yeah, the last thing that people in cities like New York, DC and San Francisco want is a place to park their cars off the street. This totally tanked the property value.

    A work of art in its own way, and purpose.

  • Benjamin B.

    There’s quite a bit of engineering and design here.

    Evidently a historic home, or in some kind of historic district, where maintaining history is desirable.

    Very well done.
