Ok guys I have been in my new office for about a month or so and it is finished enough to show the inside. My wife calls it my man space. I also have space for my truck so now I can tear it apart, which I am doing (see my journal). Notice the metal ceiling, the ceiling fan, old steering wheel, old tire, old horn etc. Anyway enjoy the pics.

heres a pic of the building i do my tinkering in. its 68' x 80' steel building with 4 12x14 high doors. you could park 2 tractor trailers inside and close the doors. so its big enough, lol. when i got the building it had been a truck repair garage. after almost 2 years i'm still cleaning it up. it was a mess. i put in a new lift, new compressor, (the whole building was already piped for compressed air every 12'). i powerwashed it. in one side i have pallet racks to hold engines, transmissions, body parts, etc. i also have a forklift which makes it real handy. i still need to put in more lighting. but its a great workplace. plans include painting the walls and ceiling white. doing something about the floor which is pretty rough concrete. right now i'm redoing the upstairs office. which is kind of funny. only a few weeks ago was the first time i'd ever gone up into that office. even though i got this building almost 2 years ago. i just never had any reason to go up there. turns out its a cool space that i'm going to fix up and put a computer in. i'll get more pics soon.

This is one of my favorite threads and I thought I would post to bump it back to the top.

I have just posted a new thread on my plans for my next garage and have also posted pictures of my previous one in this thread quite a while back.
I'm really in a mode for new ideas at this point in my planning process.

Let's get this one going again and see your garages.

I forgot about this thread, but did just now see that it had 95,777 views. WOW!!! Glad you bumped it back up. A lot of new members in a years time so maybe there will be a lot of new pics.

Wow...Almost a year since this thread was alive.....Since then, I have moved, so I better update.............My new place, the shop is 22x30...about the same size, but it was bare.....Got a lot of work to do in the spring. I have doors on it now (it didnt have any), have put in lighting, some electric circuits, and a couple of workbenches. Working away at it as time and money allows.

That looks like it will be a great space for your new shop. Keep us up-to-date as you get coming along with it. Is that a 10' ceiling?

Thanks guys...It is at least a 10 ft ceiling....What I do like about it too, is the door openings are 10x8 ft..........Lots of room to maneuver through them....I have both my vehicles on the one side with room for the wifes car to park inside for the winter months.

It looks like you have all the fixins'. I told one of our members when I visited his shop, after he apologized for it looking messy, "I'd rather see a shop that looks like someone is working than one that is spick n span, I know my work will get done and I'm not paying for your clean-up to be done". For me, time to clean would be occasionally, I like progress. Dan

I was out cleaning mine a little, putting away tools again. Then I started pulling the engine from the 55 Chevy to do the freeze plugs, seals, and regasket it. Spent 4 1/2 hours on it and it is ready to lift out in the morning.
