Hangar Home – Click above to view video after the jump

When gearheads aren't trawling Craigslist for the next old-lady-owned Chevrolet Chevelle tucked away in a barn, they're dreaming of cool places to put their toys.

Usually, dream garages never become reality. It's rare to find someone with enough ambition and/or cash to make it happen, but credit one Florida couple for creating something remarkable: the Hangar Home.

Their house's rear facade doubles as a garage door that conceals a cavernous work and storage area, complete with a set of cushy-looking armchairs for when the weekend project is over. We can't imagine how long this place took to complete, but all the time and effort really paid off. Click past the jump for two videos of the Hangar Home in action.

      Think how much fun it would be to hit the door opener with wifey on the porch....

      I wonder what happens when one accidentally operates the hangar door with someone unknowingly still sitting in those chairs...

      I'm assuming they live somewhere else, because that would get rather uncomfortable and tedious after a awhile, imo.

      We have several subdivisions with airstrips in the Houston Metro area............Not sure any of the hangers have this such a unique facade.........I know of a couple of airports that have living quarters in the hangers....... Certainly enough room to put all your toys... ;0)

      All that for a pickup and a bass boat? What a waste...

      Ambition yes, the money no. It does take a bit of time to completely open, but roughly 18 seconds in (or less), I could get most of my cars out.

      It appears to me that someone bought a hangar/home in a private Airpark, but doesn't own an airplane. There is a whole row of similar structures SW of Atlanta, but they all have private aircraft in them.

      This elaborate garage and they drive a nissan pick up truck? Should have been a raptor.

      A fool and his money... It takes way too long to open, and what does it reveal...a Nissan Titan, a bass boat, gaudy junk, and a 10 year old jet-ski...
