Hello,

There are some great lookling garages in this thread. Every one of them is more useful tham mine no matter how small.

My name is Brian and I have way too much junk. I have a 2 car attached garage (approx 20' X 20'). I literally have to climb over junk to get from the kitchen door to the garage door.

All my tools (tool boxes, compressors, engine hoist, jacks, Lincoln Mig, etc.) are buried under it all.

I admit that a lot of it is mine (going in the trash and scrap soon), but my mom decided to store her "yard sale" stuff in there when I was sick (had some major health issues for a while). She had a key and decided I was not using it at the time.

I am too ashamed to post pics on here. My poor truck is outside. It was under the snow and ice for the first time since '97 because of me.

Just a point here on garages, whatever size you do, set it up so you have good ventilation, user friendly ventilation, welding, grinding and painting, you want to get it so you can clear the air out fairly rapidly, then you won't lose your cool or warm air.

Keep your shop clean, with clean air in it, it's a lot nicer.

Just joined the site. There are some great looking garages in this thread. Hope mine turns out as well. Just started on mine the first of the month. The slab was poured Tuesday and the framing started on Thursday. The garage is 30' x 36' with a 12' x 24' workshop in back. Hope to have some finished pics before too long.

Hey Itzquick....First of all WELCOME
Secondly....What is your wall height? Are they 10' with windows at the top? And is the 12' workshop in addition to the garage or is it going to be walled off inside the 30' x 36' footprint? And if it is, 24' garage is adequate but you will find that it is not really deep enough for some things. My garage is 28' deep and with my extended cab longbed I do not have quite enought room. But what you have so far is looking great. Be sure to keep us posted on the progress of it.

Kevin

The garage is 30' x 36' with 12' 6" ceiling so I'll have the room for a lift. The windows are about 9' up so I'll get some natural light and ventilation in there, but won't have to worry about people seeing in.The workshop/storage area is on the back in addition to the garage. Kind of hard to see in the pic above.

Now that I look...the man door does seem quite short if it was a 10' wall. Looking forward to seeing the progress pics.

Gee Dave, I'm not sure it's big enough... J/K! Looks really good. You'll have it filled before you know it, though.


In a while, Chet.
