Mine is in the garage. I use it as a litmus test to see if I am an alcolholic.
If I am too lazy to go downstairs for a beer, I'm good.
(Too lazy to get a beer, really?!?!)
Yeah I know. But hey, it happens.
I have a wierd house. Kitchen and main living areas are on the second floor.
It's on a slab, the basement is on the ground.
