It's now taller than ever! Why? Read on.
The limiting factor in the earlier version of the new repair shop were the windows. The shop was made of two sets of the Auto Repair Shop set# 6363, so we only had 6 windows that matched (3 from each set). Once we changed the garage's windows to clear panels, that freed up the other windows to be used on making a new top floor. The panel windows for the garage are consistent with our desire to keep the "history" of the buildings realistic-- in this case, the garage would have been an addition made on a vacant lot next to the original "historic" main building.
Yellow roof pieces were added to the facade on the front to make a covered awning entryway. We also bulked up the cornice to give the roof line more presence (we're planning to update the Condo Building in a similar way). The awning will eventually get some advertising or signage printed onto it.
