    Seems like a good compromise. Win/win. Nice story. I think I'd not want everyone to see if I'm home or not though, so maybe he could add a blind.

    I was really impressed on our first trip to France a few years ago to see that lovely old buildings that were being worked on (Versailles from memory had a portion of the facade with photo printed scaffolding covers when we visited), have fabric over the scaffolding that is imprinted with the "real" building underneath (a bit like this building).

    What a great idea for buildings that people travel a long way to see. Who wants to look at ugly scaffolding? At lease this creates an illusion for visitors of what it looks like beneath the cover.

    Win/win solution.
    He gets his garage and the streetscape is unaffected.
    I would see this as working with City Hall rather than fighting it.

    @wylie - printed shade cloth over scaffolding has been used for at least 10 years in Sydney.

    I recall projects like Sydney Town Hall and at Royal North Shore Hospital have been screened in this manner.

    That's the exact hotel we stayed in in Florence a few years ago. Are they STILL renovating? :p

    I've never seen this in Australia. It is a great idea and we saw a fair bit of it in Paris. I'm guessing it doesn't come cheap.
