But I put together a place that makes the most of the available space (for carpentry, metal fab and work on my weekend car) with an assortment of second-hand industrial cabinets that I turned into storage and ten different work surfaces. I did all the work myself, including setting the tile and digging the pit for the lift. Everything in the place is second-hand, re-purposed or home-made.













Work benches that fold down from the wall:







You can see the lift in operation in this video:

Is it always this clean? No. Not by a long shot.





But it does go back to clean very quickly -- that's the real accomplishment of it, I think. I finally took the time to work out a place for everything to go when It's not being used.

In practice, it makes a huge difference not having to spend so much time looking for things you've misplaced. I spent years doing that.



More pictures and a bench-by-bench look at the place at the website I made for it: http://www.12-gaugegarage.com
Saw this in Car Craft. WOW is right!

Mine

20x22 detached....Nothing fancy inside, but installed the door and built the deck last year to relax while playing in the garage. After these pictures I did add new lighting and all new wiring. More work this summer...

Here's mine. 3 car detached garage (far left stall full of winter clutter). Insulated, heated, cold water plumbed, floor drain, additional lighting for detailing, ceiling fans, TV / DVD / Stereo, full attic storage. I paid to have it done back in 2009. It's so nice to have everything toasty warm in the garage when it's -20 degrees outside! Cost about $6,000 to go from bare walls and open rafters to this.

NOTHING COMPARED TO SOME BUT

Built myself except the foundation. Still in progress but full of toys too many actually. Did the floor with Line-x myself as well.

Love this thread! Some X-rated stuff in here Mine is still a work in progress. Nearing the end though .

Anyone have ideas for cool art/signs to put up on my walls and good places to find stuff?

Wow! Great color combo and theme you've got going.

We see so much cool wall art on this thread. It depends on your budget, but I think go with what you like to look at! I'm a habitual collector of old magazines and posters of the cars and motorcycles I've owned over the years, so I gathered a bunch together, measured them and bought black frames at Wal-Mart to put them in. I arranged them on my walls starting with the oldest on the left wall and working my way around to present day vehicles. It's easy to start covering wall space pretty fast. Amazon and eBay have a huge assortment of posters - automotive, racing, movie, beautiful scenery, etc.

I also like NEON. Either neon clocks or signs will ad a nice glow to your garage.

Thanks! I've been thinking neon would be a good choice. The only problem is shipping neon signs up here to Canada is expensive due to the weight. Guess I'll just have to bite the bullet...

JantzenOKC - where did you get the "Camaro" script on the top shelf to the left of your car? What's it made out of and how thick is that? It looks pretty cool.

Nice garages! Let's see them!

Does anyone here have a nice looking and or big garage? Post up some pics I'd love to see it. Be smart though. Blur out any license plates or any type of identifier of where you live. I'd hate to have my thread be the cause of someone's stolen property.
