Winter is here, and if your household has two cars fighting for warm garage space, a garage car lift like the one shown behind this contemporary garage door may be just what you need. Both cars stay warm, your driveway stays clear, and you can claim the "Coolest Garage in the Neighborhood" prize. Not bad.
Even if your garage was deep enough for two vehicles (and it wasn't full of stuff), an automated car life like this one would allow for an well-orchestrated departure--should you leave before your better half, you just lift the obstructing car up and out of the way so you can roll through and get to work.
Garages are built for cars, and we tend to use them for storage, too. Something like this could be a great way to tuck a boat, an ATV, or a snowmobile out of the way during the off season.
We're curious: What else could you use a lift like this for?
