Ma ei saa leida "shut away" sõnaraamatus. Saad mulle öelda, kuidas see on eesti keeles?

Mina pakuksin veel "oma garaaži sulgununa / sulgununa oma garaaži" või "olles oma garaaži sulgunud / olles sulgunud oma garaaži", kui ta pani ennast sinna ise kinni.

Või "oma garaaži suletuna / suletuna oma garaaži" või "olles oma garaaži suletud / olles suletud oma garaaži", kui seda tegi keegi teine.

Olles oma garaaži sulgunud, ta ehitas masinat, mis saab mängida malet enda vastu.

Why "masinat"? I would have said "ta ehitas masina," (genitive for total object?), but I'm forever mixing up partial and total objects and their cases....

Kevad on õhus. ("Kevad on käes" is more common - "Spring is here!")

Yes!

"ta ehitas masina" = (s)he built (a/the) machine
"ta ehitas masinat" = (s)he was building (a/the) machine (or even (s)he was building [some] machine if you take the partialness or vagueness of the object into consideration)

But here I would call it accusative rather than genitive. Accusative can look like either genitive or nominative in different contexts.

I have also heard "Õhus on tunda kevadet." (or "Õhus on kevadet tunda.") if you want to use "õhk" in the sentence.
