Are you all millionaires? WTF? I wanna see some of the houses next to some of these garages.
I do see that most of you live in the boonies(for lack of better word). Garages and space must be cheap. I'd like to see a garage of someone in the NJ/NY area (not upstate).

I would love to have a handful of those garages. It's very impressive. Good job to you all.

Nice garages guys, there is nothing like a clean garage to let your pony sleep in over night.

First is my actual garage, where the beaut sleeps and the beast is being built in the back. Second is where my beaut and anything else gets worked on.

Today's garages are just too small. Mine is only 21ft deep by 19ft wide. I think my parents house built in the 70's is 26 x 24.

Agreed.

Next home I purchase will either have a much larger garage or enough land to build a shop. That is at least 30 by 30

Life is Good

In 2001, I was changing the oil on my 99 Dakota 4 banger by the curb at my sister's house.

I've had 3 cars in my garage, a little tight. I'm getting a lot of the side junk out now that my kids are older, plan is to add another car in there:

Took a week off and decided to clean everything out and epoxy the garage floor, what a huge difference and it looks so much bigger being coated. One more coat of clear tonight and I can bring the Camaro back in on Monday or Tuesday!

I see no one responded to my earlier message. Thought I would get something from it. So WTF? Millionaires? Lots of land? Middle of nowhere? How do you people have such huge garages?

Location to income ratio.

You like me, are here in Central NJ. So if you guestimate the standard income is about $45K, here you know how taxes average between $4k-$10k depending on where in NJ you are. Now add utilities and regular bills and you aren't living lifestyles of the rich and famous. If you were making $200K a year in this area I could see otherwise.

Now, lets take that same $45K income and go say like certain parts of TX or NC. Guess what, the same $350K house you bought here, is going for $75K there.

Here is our garage, which is still in build process:

I know what we are paying in NJ, I have a $450,00 house. I have a 2 car garage. If 2 cars are parked in there and you fully open a door, someone is gonna get a ding. My house has 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths and I am on a 1/2 acre of land. My taxes are $10,000 a year. There is no way I can even fathom having a garage like half of these people are posting, it is almost surreal. That is why I am saying everyone must be a millionaire or live in the cheapest places of the US. Come on people, what is it?

I live in central NJ and I can tell you I'm far from a millionaire. My property is about an acre and my garage is 30x36 with 2 bays. It has 12' ceilings with a 2 post lift. I built it myself with the help of my dad when he was available. I have a total of $24,700 in it including the lift. I installed a 100 amp sub panel, forced hot air and central A/C. I do a lot of fabrication so my shop is not "pretty" but it is very functional.

where in CNJ???

I'm right here in Sayreville so you're probably not too far off from what our area costs. I don't have the construction skill so we went with a contractor but we've put nearly $45K into our garage.

I'm just about straight across the state from you in Hopewell. My biggest cost was the foundation and concrete work. I didn't have the time or equipment to excavate and lay up the block. My neighbor quoted me a price of $9000 and had it done in a week. I have friends in the trades so my HVAC was at their cost and I installed it. The lift was second hand from an NTB going out of business. I got the lift and a Coats rim clamp tire machine for $200. I spent the better part of a year working nights and weekends to complete it but I couldn't be happier with it. Well, I should have built it bigger but I probably would say that no matter what size I made it.

My garage is attached to my house and is 1000 sq ft. Big garages are common here in MN due to our vast climate changes. 100+ in the summer, -30 in the winter.

Cost of living isn't terrible here.

I used the Rust-oleum from HD. So far it has held up great, I just need to get a large squeegee. Rinsing it out is great, but the water beads up like wax on a Camaro!
