I will use the space where the bike is as a shop. Along the wall to the left of the bike everything is on wheels...easy to move.It's a 2.5 car garage(maybe 4 if I had some minis) On the wall to the right of the bike everything is stationary. The cabinets were a freebie ( I work in a scrap yard someone sold them to us-they are 1950's steel ones). I wish the ceiling was little higher for a lift. I was thinking of a radiant tube heater for the ceiling.
Any ideas would be appreciated
Thanks again for looking
Mike

BTW the bird's been sitting since I pulled the dash. I intend to get it going this winter. Changed job,house,state almost changed wife in the last 8 months.
Bird will get some torque thrust wheels and some pinstriping. Eventually a tube grille. Mild 1960's custom.

yea, I have two plotters that are just dust collectors now. PDF for the win. I just set up a small office in my shop--don't think those will be transferred over.

I too have two plotters! The hp 1050C shown and a hp 450C Both are 36" wide format. I tend to get a lot of contract drawings on PDF also so I plot out half size prints for my own use. MRGM...what do you use your plotters for?

I have some pics of my 24 x 32 in my journal.
It's set up as a 2-bay garage, but I can get 3 in there quite easily ... and did last winter.

My "daily driver" is a 1992 GMC K1500 4x4. It's an extended cab with a 6ft stepside box, and it JUST fits. I have a 2ft wide wooden bench at the front which I pull up within about a foot of, and there isn't room left to walk behind with the bay door closed. I wanted a 26-foot depth, but had to fight like hell with the town to get what I've got.

This winter ... the DD gets parked outside. I have my '66 cab back now, and need some working space to do a little more welding and repair (hood, doors, box sides, etc.)

The garage also has a tube -type radiant heater and ceiling fans to push that warm air around under the vehicles. It seems very resonable to heat to 55 F (Three cats live out there too, so I keep it warm for them.)

I've got a 5HP upright compressor, so I can do a fair amount of "tinkering" out there when I have the time. Ive just bought myself one of those "suitcase sized" flux-core welders ... so let's see how badly I can screw up sheetmetal!

I'll add some more pictures soon ... after I get my mess cleaned up.

my garage...

Picture of it when we moved in, it was huge! garage is about 1000sqft, such a jump from the small one car we had. Then I seperated it as pictured in the 2nd photo the wall is going up. I was doing an engine swap/turbo on the honda for a friend. Last photo is fairly current, except there is about an inch of body filler dust on everything from my current project! I so wish I had a lift, but 9ft ceiling is the limit. Not complaining, but it sure would help on certain tasks.

and now it has 480sf of parts storage:







This is my first significant carpentry exercise and while the floor is level, I don't think I will be leaving the computer field any time soon. I'm lucky my father had the time to lend a hand the last four days as I'd have never gotten it finished this past week by myself. It took me Tuesday and Wednesday just to get the floor framed up well enough to support the rest of the lumber so I could move the cars back inside after I started. This coming weekend I will add some lights underneath and I hope to also finish sealing up the walls. Anyway, I've probably spent the last 20 or 30 minutes just gawking at all of the sweet garages pictured in this thread and wanted to add an update for mine.
