Mooch...The car actually was sitting on buckets for a short while. They are surprisingly strong but it was just temporary until I picked up some small drums. I wasn't working on the car while it was on buckets I did pick up four 35 gal. drums that were just the right height.

56x26 heated garage (4 doors) and a 30x40 pole barn (unheated). Barely enough room, believe it or not ! The 39 takes up 2 heated bays, the 2 sleds, 4 wheeler w/ snowblower, Mill and lathe eat up the rest of the garage. Polebarn houses the tractor, 65 Chevelle SS , a 2 place sled trailer and the rest of the car parts. Time to liquidate the sleds and tractor...,eh maybe not! Build more barn !!

My shop is a 30x40x12 steel buiding behind my house. It is insulated with Astrofoil(I think) insulation that has an R19 value at only 1/4 inch thick. It is great stuff and not too high. My shop is also kindo my pride and joy since I built the entire thing down to the slab myself. There are some pics inside the shop in my album. BTW, it is WAAAAYYY too small already.

Hi,some pics of mine 30 wide x 48 deep 9ft walls,pole stlyle,had the shell put up by contractor,finished the rest myself,took about a year. Anyone considering building,get at least 8ft tall overhead door,feel is a must,set my doors as far to the left as possible,still have about 8ft wall space on the side.Someday would like to reorganize but said that the after the last 3 projects.http://hotrodders.com/gallery/data/5...0-med.JPG?2600 http://hotrodders.com/gallery/data/5...1-med.JPG?8922 http://hotrodders.com/gallery/data/5...5-med.JPG?2593

Zonk.... You either have too much time on your hands, or not enough cars. You have too much open space.

Man, am I jealous!!

I think I officially have the smallest shop here. Mines 16x24 with a half story on top. I was really starting to get flustered by all the nice big shops I was seeing until I looked at the average age of the posters. You guys are old! Sorry, it's the jealousy seeping out of me again. I wish I had it that good. By the way, I'm completely restoring a 67' mustang fastback from the ground up and I'm lovin every minute of it. This is my first one, so it's been a slow learning experience.

Built my 55 Chevy in a 10X20 garage. Had to move it side to side just to open the doors. Ive changed a transmission in a snowbank. The shop I have now is not large, 24X24, but I have bilt a few cars in there.

Like Iv'e said, worked in alot smaller. Reorganize a bit. Get some of the stuff from the sides out of there. I always found, the more room you have on the sides the better.

You guys are so lucky having big yards with the space for nice workshops . With the UK being a much smaller place all the houses are closer together unless your way up the ladder . The average garage that comes with a house is 8 X 16 , my house was built in 1902 before there were any cars around - I don't even have a drive and trying to rent anything of a decent size is too expensive just to use for a hobby .
I'm trying to find something right now for when the 55 gets here

Maybe it'd be better if I left my 55 in the US and just moved myself to where it is

I do not have pictures yet but my garage is my hideaway. It is 2 cars wide and 45 ft deep. It has gas hot air heat, drain in the floor to wash cars, stereo, tv with cable, front half is for everyday drivers and has work bench and tv, glass front showcases on side walls for models with lighting on them, pictures with those light bulbs built in.
The back half is the work area with all the toys ya need. The front and back are seperated by 4 hinged 4 x 8 panels on hinges. conserves heat and neighbors cannot see as much if door is open
