You can see the west wall of my barn in the background. Lots of storage upstairs. Parents got tired of the driveway full of Classic steel so they helped fund the building in 1985.

Don't really have any interior shots of it? And no work bench at all so I can't post a pic of it.

Hey McDuff.... You couldn't ask for more light in a garage. Now all you need is a couch and a big screen tv. That is nice!!!

WOW ! Nice places. If I ever get the time to clean up mine, I'll take some pics. Its a 40 X 54 Quanset hut lookin-thingy.

A couple of things to remember when building a garage
You can NEVER EVER have enough light. Check the local districl school disposal (white pages). I picked up 8' flourscent fixtures for $1.00 each, with bulbs... (also got an untrasonic cleaner big enough for carbs, etc.- they didn't know what it was... $5.00)
You need a good fire-extinguisher - check it periodically to make sure its charged. (haven't seen many of these in the pics)
Leave the TV inside the house it is a distraction to you.
Consider a motion sensitive/IR alarm system. Nothing gets someone's attention like cycling a 12-ga. pump, but you need to know someone is snooping around. If you have doggies, place the IR sensors 4' up a wall and aimed at a diagonal corner. It eliminates the security system being setoff by animals (cats are another story...)
You can never have enough outlets
If you haven't poured the slab, it would be a great tome tu bury PVC chases for future use - stub them & cap them off until needed (cheap before the pour, not so cheap to install across the roof)
Consider a used-dishwasher (as a partswasher) $25 EVERY weekend on the paper and it will keep you in good graces with the wife.
Get a used oven for powder coating (see above reason)

There are REALLY nice garages in this post. What are the "things" inside that make your life easier in the garage. Not the big things like lifts, but the smaller things - homemade tool caddies, toolholders, (did I say drink holders??) etc. What have you made out of that old engine stand???

Poncho62, I am using the one outside shot of your cars as my background on my computer at work. That's a great shot!

It kinda jumps out at ya doesnt it?440 inches of big ole chevy in a 73 pontiac firebird.It is hard to believe but a year ago,that was a turnkey running car that I drove to cruisenights.Boredom got the best of me and what started out as a repaint exploded into a restoration.There is no end in sight to this project.

Here's mine.... it needs a good cleaning though. Too much stuff that isn't CAR stuff.
That's a blast cabinet I'm just finishing building.
Here's a corner I will eventually make into an "old fashioned" garage. Right now it's the TV and refrigerator desk.

Here's the magazine and catalog reference center. No, I don't use the kerosene lamp to read by.

Here's a work bench my dad built over 50 years ago. I painted it and added the wheels. That's a Ford rear end on jack stands sitting on the bench.


One last pic... the car. Sorry about all the stuff behind it in the corner. That has to be cleaned out someday. The little red wagon has old brake parts and oil in it. I used it to move the rear end around and to catch the fluids when I opened it up.
