Build your house for your bikes.

Do you have 22 bikes to store? You may want to think about building your home to cater to your Velo storage needs. Then again you’d probably need to live in a much more bicycle complementary city like Portland Oregon…and be rich.

Avid bicyclists who race nationally and internationally, Tim and Sue Butler began their new-home search looking for a place with a garage to store their bikes.

They ended up spending over a million dollars building a dramatic three-story wood-and-glass contemporary with a roof deck far above neighboring roofs, giving them a 360-degree view of the city. A separate 600-square-foot “garage” houses their 22 bikes plus many other extras a bike enthusiast might want, from a hot-water washing station for muddy bikes to a sauna, fitness room and fix-it station.
