New Term?

Don’t know if it’s a new term, but it’s a new term to me: ‘Garage Mahal.’

I overheard it at a Realtor meeting this morning that was hosted at a close-in, city home — one that only had an attached, single car garage.

I certainly know the Garage Mahal archetype: an overlarge, over elaborate garage to hold all the owners’ “toys,” often found in the kinds of ‘burbs where McMansions predominate.

However, given the setting, you’d guess there was a little garage envy involved, too.
