The Garage House features a 10-meter roll-up door and a small workshop area with a sink and countertop.
From the Garage House, there are 3 other exits:
- A bridge from a door to the North leads directly to the 2nd floor of the Main House.
- An internal staircase provides safe access to a covered walkway underneath the bridge and brings people to a fully equipped cross-training gym. The gym has a bathroom, a changing room, and a small kitchen with a supplement bar.
- A covered walkway, found underneath the bridge, guides people towards the entrance to the 1st floor of the Main House.
