LOL I understand. One of my best friends has just built a 24 X 50 foot garage. They poured the floor last week and before he put the first thing in it he told me he wished he had made it 28X by 50.

I told him I would have only been slightly more jealous.

When I built my 30' by 30' shop 25 years ago, I built it with 16' walls. I then built two 30' by 12' mezzanines above the floor. Second level along the side and the third level across the back. The second level is supported by the wall of a 4"8" bathroom (complete with shower that I've never used) and a small parts/nuts and bolt room. The third level I cantilevered off the back wall with two 2'square ( very heavy walled) tubing. On the the face of each level I built my own continuous glue lam. No supporting posts anywhere. Unfortunately everything is so packed with clutter I had to put my machines on wheels so I can work. I'm so darned lazy I just can't seem to get things straightened out. My problem is when I pick things up I don't no where to put them. I'm one of those people who can't throw anything out It drives me nuts!

Usually, you can put things in the rafters but with a basement shop there is no luxury of attic space.

Kind of hard to see the building behind the New Holland and Pete but it's 35' wide, 53' deep. 16ft ceiling. The doors are 14' tall. There is a divider wall between the overhead doors the length of the building. Right side is 14' wide, dirt floor, cold storage. Left side is 21 ft wide, heat, running water, floor drain in concrete floor, 100 amp 240 volt electric.

It's packed. I have a 4 post lift on the right so I can get 4 cars in it along with enough parts to build 3 more cars. There is barely enough room to walk beside the cars ...

Shop side isn't much better but I try to keep a bay open to accommodate our cars when they need service. Right now my 2000 K1500 with plow is taking up a lot of space. I like to keep it inside for when it snows and it snows every other day here...

boothboy , you sound like me . i can spend all day cleaning things up only to realize i just moved things from one side to the other. after the holidays i am going to do some serious downsizing. if i haven't used it in 10 years it's going into the junk trailer. building a barn will help get all the farm and building stuff out of here. i swear i could have this 40 acres under roof and still be cramped .

40 acres under a roof = 41 acres of storage needed.
theres some scientific formula that you can use to figure it out exactly but its a close estimate...

my problem is i have 3 16x25's inside the 40x90 . but i loose a lot because i built it to drive through with a trailer. if i cut back to 1 or 2 cars i would be fine. that is my goal for the new year , retire and only do my own and maybe 1 vette at a time. but i am done with rust and dents . just cant beat on this metal any more .

Thats exactly what I did 5 years ago,or that was the plan anyways.I closed the big shop just before the economy went in the crapper, took two years off and worked on my old cars at home then the neighbors started complaining and the sheriffs kept showing up so I rented a small shop that could only fit my tools and two cars...but once the word got around that I had a shop all my old customers started coming around and little by little I got tied up doing everybody elses work again and my old cars sat and sat, they havn't been touched in over a year...... but I have a hard time saying NO....The only way you can get away with working on your own stuff is to stick to your guns once youve made up your mind....
I guess I wasnt completely ready but the old cars will be waiting for me when I am....Heck I still have two stored at my Bro in laws property and three at the shop...

The simple truth is, when you can do this work, and do it well, you will NEVER be out of work. And often, more often than not, you have too much to do!
