When I'll get a house built, I'll do exactly like my father in law did with his current house. He extended the basement under the garage floor and had a 4X6 hole made in the garage floor. You get the same functionality as a pit, but it's legal (at least here) since there is a safety exit, unlike a real pit.

You're missing something: the car lift so you can park a couple cars in the basement

Am I missing something?

I think you can buy something similar to this from any boating accessory store. They use them instead of dumping the oil into the bilge and having to wash the bilge out. They are much cheaper also.
