Mostly it was because I didn't really think I would get around to building the garage pod but when the living pod turned out so well, I was motivated.Wow very unique and interesting.
What was your motivation for keeping the two pods seperate from one another?
Having them separate has benefits. Gas fumes from the motorcycles and general mess from using the garage pod as a workshop don't spill over into the living pod.
The living pod is around 4500 pounds and the garage pod is 2000 to 2500 pounds empty (estimates). Combined it would be too much for the standard truck camper jacks we use to lift them off the truck.
