A House Built for 2 (2 Bicycles)
I want to hate these people. I really do. But as someone who is currently in the emotional vortex of the home buying process, I more envy their ability to build a house from scratch to suit their needs. And let’s face it, if we were all One Percenting bike enthusiasts, this is the kind of house we would build for ourselves as well.
Avid cyclists and professional racers, Tim and Sue Butler designed and built this house in Portland Oregon to suit their cycling needs, which are both many and extravagant. The house contains an almost full-service bike shop for their combined 22 bikes, a hot water station, (stationary) sauna and repair space. That’s all really just the tip of the bikeberg though.
It seems quite absurd in one regard, but the barely-scraping-by cyclist in me finds it quite dreamy too. So to you Mr. and Mrs. Butler, I must tip my helmet to your decision to install a 3 room bike garage instead of a gold toilet. At least you have your priorities straight.
