I just look at it everyday and dream of how nice it would be if I could... Don't look like it will happen in this life time...

ditto, but ah to dream... lol
I have a tent garage 14'x21' that come spring I'll replace the tent with tin roofing.. and it'll be my extra shop...
so I can work on my junk when I'm off.. and /or paint without covering everything i garage..
I will also bump out one wall 4-5'(of wood garage) and make a leantube like add on to put the tool box /gas wrench/welder/parts cleaner/jacks/stands etc..
that'll help big time.. and with my cerment mixer.. I figure 5-9 c notes to do it..

Good luck with it... I was very happy when I first had this one,, But it doesn't take long to out grow them...

I took my willys chassis to a show once and met a older guy at the show,, He said the chassis looked very professional,, And asked where was my shop... I said I didn't have a shop,, It's just a little garage in my back yard,, Not to professional... He looked at me and said this....'' Do you know some of the best hotrods ever built came out of little shack's in someones back yard''..

Yes I seen that...

He said.. Don't ever put down what you have,,, Look at what you build... It's professional work... I just looked at him and smiled..

But that big shop would sure be nice to have...

It took me three yrs to find the right space and the right price for a rental space. I've been in there going on 4 yrs now.I've got the left side.





When I first moved in all it had was three lights and only one wall plug.



I don't mind making improvements for better utility so first came lights over the benches and wall plugs

I stole the idea of lighting on the walls from body shops/paint booths each having their own switch to save on power use and to have lighting where I wanted and when I wanted.



Recently I got tired of buying bolts and nuts and screws that later I found I had.I do like my mac salad so I saved the containers from that.I built shelves slightly tilled.



Then built shelves with lighter and cheaper wood for the bigger liquid containers.Didn't work out as well as I hoped but it's still holding up.



I too believe it isn't how big of a shop you have,but how well you use the available space.Proof of that is my race partnership's shop is some 60 miles away and not as nearly as large as this personal shop.

Some cool ideas,,,
Gary you would be better off going with the 8' lights with the four smaller bulbs from Lowe's...And you wouldn't need as many lights as you have,,, That's what I put up in my shop,, MUCH better lighting,, I had the ones something like you have,,, Night and day difference between the two.. Believe me...

I agree.Thing is I got that lighting from a guy used cheap with a box of extra bulbs.

The next big thing I have been passively window shopping for is a two poster lift. That would be a huge game changer for the kind of work that could be done in there.
