Default Raleigh NC Car Condo?

I'm looking at relocating to the Raleigh area. I'm wondering if there are any garage storage facilities similar to GarageTown or other RV/large condo style storage that you can purchase? If so this could increase the types of homes we are looking for as I like my toys (and want more)

I've only been out there a couple of times so I don't know the area to well yet. Of course if I find a house with a little land, then I'll be building. But a "car condo" could be a good compromise. . .

I live in Cary & work in Raleigh. Also PM me if you have questions. I've been here almost 30 years total. Nice town, has been losing some of the image of "Raleigh's favorite color is beige."

But I still don't understand what a 'car condo' is.

Some of the franchised models of a car condo are garagetown dot com (not pimping them but they are a good example) Basically it is a large door unit that you can purchase. You can run a business, keep cars/rvs/toys. Typical size is 12x25 up to 16x50 or bigger. There are some large complexes being built around these models basically letting folks that like garages and stuff that goes in them build a personalized one where they can't do it on their own property due to covenants/space/expense.

All I have spotted were storage units so far, but then again I have time to look for something with a larger garage or space to build for now!

What a cool idea! I live south of Ral and work in Cary. Never seen this kinda thing.

good luck on the move.

Has anyone put together a GJ meet up in the Ral area? Maybe time to grab a brew and talk shop
