I once wasted a day trying to lay out a building and parking on a site. It couldn't be done. The building footprint, plus parking, plus zoning setbacks equalled 92% of the area of the site. Tight, but do-able you are thinking; just get creative.
... Did I mention that the shape of the site had an offset that prevented an efficient parking layout? Some layouts came so close to working that I was sure there was a solution. Nope, the math wouldn't give.
If only I had worked the math first, I would have spent most of that day looking at alternatives like partial two-story, or a full two-story building, or simply explaining that we were wasting our time on this site.
I have disappointed myself for years by setting goals. Start with Lent. New Years Resolutions. The bigger the better we are told - BHAGs Big Hairy Ass Goals (A is supposedly for 'Audacious', but we know better.)
Dilbert helped me see the light.
I've jumped the gun.
