What do you work in?

My garage is kind of my pride and joy. I'd like to see some pics of other to get some ideas as I am already thinking of adding on the rear. One thing I do have which is a relatively cheap thing to do is cabinets. The ones I have I made myself and the doors that you see on there cost only $5.00 apiece already finished. The bad thing is that you have to build the cabinet to the size of the doors you have. The upper cupboards are made from 1"x12" sheeting boards and 1"x3" boards for the frame work. Just a few bucks for the hinges and the $5.00 apiece boards and you have a pretty decent Cupboard for the garage. I also build a long narrow one beside the garage door to store brooms but shelves could be put in to store almost anything. The last pic is the side of the garage I plan on keeping the '62 parked in when done. It is seperate from the rest of the garage. Also in the very front of the area is a 4' deep closet that goes all the way across. It has wire rack shelves and is used just for storage. If anyone would do something like this make sure you use an exterior door as an entrance door. By doing so keeps all chances of mice getting in due to the fact it is sealed all around.

HotWheels...I've seen you garage before. I like it. It is one that I saved the pics of and put into a folder on the 'puter. I really like the way you have the area above in the pic with the lift. Of course I would have that carpeted and set up with the computer, TV, fridge, and whatever else. Oh and the intercom system because that is where the wife would find me all the time. Great looking garage. Sure makes mine look kinda primitive.

Thanks for the compliment. I have an intercom system near the man door and telephone. I can't put in a tv unless I add another satellite receiver. All I can get without another receiver is the PAX channel and I get very tired of "Flipper". We're in a valley surrounded by mountains so reception is poor.
I had to work my way up to this shop. My first shop was a storage room in a carport. I had to use that for many years, plus keep my Honda is there. I went to a metal storage shed, 12x6' after that...much more room until the Harley got pushed inside.
You've got a nice set up yourself AND you have tv.
Someone on another site put out this link for shops/garages. There's a couple in there that I like so well I'm trying to convince the wife to sell our home and build another with a new shop.

You guys are disgusting. All of that room! How do you work? Mu garage is 22X32, with the doors on the short side. I have enough room, almost, to walk between my projects (67 Mustang, 31 Ford Tudor, and 26 Model T Touring) and parts. I need something like you have to be able to work in while the one that I have stores my junk. Right now am trying to convince my wife to let me add on, but even she knows that I will fill that up also.

HotRodder...Like they used to say. That's like trying to shove 10lb of **** into a 5 lb. bag. Nice garage. Looks like a HUGE undertaking on the camper. I would never had thought it would have fit along with 2 cars stored in there. Nice use of space.

My old shop is 24X32, but when you get an A coupe , a 56 T-Bird, a Harley, tool boxes, compressor, etc, you run out of room real fast. My SUPER SWEET other half agreed to a new shop. This one is 40X64. As of now the building is up, the floor with drains is in, and about 50% of the final electrical is in. Now I have to wait for the wallet to refill so I can add some rooms,more electrical, insulation,and drywall

2nd home (so my wife says)

Finished building our 30x36 shop with covered carport last year. Houses my 51 Willy's PU HotRod (work-in-progress). It has water, frig, TV, Internet, A/C, propane heat, insulated walls and ceiling and painted epoxy floor. This floor coating is from Rustoleum and is GREAT! No concrete dust and is a breeze to sweep up. Compressor is outside to muffle noise. Skylights help light things up during the day. 2nd. floor is all storage thru drop-down staircase.

Hey Kevin, I never knew shop buckets made such great jackstands That's an awesome shortcut, but keep and eye out for any buckling on the side of those things. I'd hate to hear you having another bionic shoulder from the car falling on ya.

Love the shop though, looks like you have plenty of room for misc. storage and mobility.
