Heres my new one, the house my family just moved into. This is not how it'll stay, just a start. Need to put up more shelves and a big workbench.

My get-away

My garage is a 30x32' chunk of heaven! It has everything I need, and then some. I have a 32" TV hanging from the ceiling, Stereo, Bar, Ref., couch, a corner of upper and lower cabinets with work benches. I have a decent amount of tools and gadgets. I have done many projects to my 65' Falcon out there. I'm in the middle of bringing it back from the dead! People wonder how I keep it so clean. When I'm done for the day I spend time putting the tools away, sweep/mop the floor, vacuum if it needs it. Its so great to be out there, I dont mind spending the time to clean it! It also has heat and A/C!

Mike....nice garage. The Fargo looks good sitting in there. But you know your time is limited and you will be kicked to the curb before long!!!

Draglink....if that is the garage I want to see what the outside looks like. I don't think any sanding, painting, or grinding is getting done in there. Looks primo though. I'd be hanging in there quite a bit.

Thanks, for the comments! And yes Kevin alot of grinding, and sanding gets done in the garage. I have replaced the rockers, bottom rear quarters on the Falcon, plus a lot of sanding and filling of dents. I have also replaced rear quarters on the Bronco in there. I dont think I'll paint in there. I'm not skilled enough to try to paint my car myself. Like I said, I spend an extra hour or two cleaning when I'm done, and I also clean as I work. I do move the car over towards the benches away from the carpet. I'm a sales rep. for a flooring company so new carpet is not a big deal. Thanks again, Mike

Roger1, No some guy from California offered 10 thousand more than his asking price and waived the inspection. We did end up buying a bigger and better house in Bastrop. There was no shop full of free stuff at this one. I did get a free couch and some Groovy window treatments. thanks for asking. I did go back and talk to the guy that got the house but the old guy took everything out when he left.

This is an interesting thread so I thought I would bring it back up again.

My shop is 60' x 100' with the front half the heated shop and the rear half project and equipment storage. The 15' walls provides ample height for the lift that is still on the to do list. It was constructed in 1968 by my family using 2" and 3" drill stem pipe, oak and strong barn corrugated tin.

The welding tables are steel 55 gallon drums filled with sand and topped with 3/8" plate. The work bench is 20' long constructed of 2" oak cut at our neighbors saw mill back in the 1960's.

It is not fancy but is roomy, solid, warm and my favorite place to be.

Thanks for listening.

Thanks Poncho,

A buddy of mine always says it is not the size of the shop but what you do with it.

Oldschoolrods,

Thanks though it is not fancy.

As for projects in the shop the '35 Chevy Master coupe is the priority now. Heidts MII, GMPP 330 hp crate engine, Vintage Air, and so on. Usual stuff. The doors and fenders are at Randy's for some professional metal shaping. Hoping to complete it in time for the Frog Follies next year but that may be more a hope than a doable goal.

On the back burner is the '48 Chevy 1/2 ton, Fatman, bed by Mack Pro and fenders by Ebay. Number 3 or 4 on the priority list.

Under the cover is the '56 Belair 2 door hardtop. Green and white, Corvette IRS, front disc, and a lumpy cam 350. It is a 10 foot car kinda left over from the early 80's.

The project on deck after the '35 is a '48 Chevy Suburban that it is stored in the back with an '89 Iroc, a 50 1 ton Chevy, Randy's 37 Olds.

Enough so I'll never run out of projects, just running out of room.
