    Lightbulb Does this kind of garage exist anywhere in the world?

    Before I was thinking what kind of garage I would build if I had endless amount of money and this is what I came up to, my Paint skills aren't the best so beware:

    Have you seen something like this? If so, please show me. Would be cool to see!!

    Feel free to write what you think about this? Any opinions are interesting.

    Thanks!

    Over 100 views and no opinion at all? Come on, guys!
    I wanna know if I'm the first one with a underwater garage as soon as I get stinky rich.
    It feels like someone else would've come up with this idea before me and there's crazier garages than this so..

    Will not work if you want a full view through the pool. Small windows yes, large scale no.

    If your pool has 20,000 gallons of water @ 8 lbs a gallon. That's 160,000lbs to support on glass. It would have to be multiple feet thick.
    East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',
    we're gonna do what they say can't be done.

    How does those waterworld places do it then? Where you can go around in tunnels and watch fishes swim on the sides and over you?
    Plexiglass?

    Imagine how cool it would look standing in your garage and looking up + all the cool effects from the water and sunlight commin through the pool.

    As I said before, I don't think I'm the first one with this and it has to exist somewhere in the world.

    Would be much easier to park cars on glass above your indoor pool.
