Somewhere in the process of permitting our plans here in Austin, we ran into an antiquated neighborhood zoning rule that mandated that your garage could not protrude closer to the street than the rest of the house.  In order to accommodate this and get the plans permitted the entire right side of the house was stretched and the person who came out the real winner in the whole thing was Parker Pinkston.  Her closet went from generous to begin with to downright luxurious, possibly the size of a small bedroom.  Amazing, right?  Kind of.  As …
