We went out today & picked up a few things from my parents house & bought a few more for the garage. Here are pics. Is anyone here old enough to be able to identify what the wooden cabinet is and willing to admit it? I have to admit I am old enough to know.

I do, I do!! And it's in great shape too! Oh, it's an ice cooler. I say that because there should be a door with a tray inside to put the block of ice on. It looks like it has a bottle opener on it as well.

That looks nice. If I put a TV in my garage my wife would be very upset. She says I spent too much time out there now.

Ruby,

Looks great..I would seriously consider insulating you garage for a couple of different reason.

As with any garage you will put thing in it that are sensative to climate, including your car.

If you have any detailing supplies they are sensative to temperature etc.....

The peg board is a great idea but if it is like in my area it is extremely high. I recommended drywalling at least the ceiling and whatever wallcovering you want to put.

This serves a couple of purposes...The drywall ceiling painted white give a great amount of light without having to put a bunch of lights in the garage...cause you never have enough light in a garage. Secondly it will help control the dust factor....it such a shame to detail you ride, put it in the garage and come back and it be covered in dust.

The builders should know a good drywall guy and it is usually the cheapest cover to do on walls.

For example I paid 900.00 to have the walls and celing done in my garage...my walls are 12' tall and mine is 30 x 42, of course I have used the drywallers alot but it usually runs about .30 a sg ft or around $14.00 a board hung an finished for 4 x 12 sheets of drywall some do it by the job on smaller jobs...Remember cheaper isn't better.....

Actually, Mike says we can do the pegboard/beadboard cheaper. I am in favor of insulation, but we are doing the inside ourselves a little at a time. We could put up some of the pegboard temporarily then back out the screws when ready to insulate & put it back up. Not so much with drywall. Besides, neither of us can do drywall.

Well nothing much happened this week because we had to wait on the state electrical inspector. He finally came & approved it so the concrete can now be poured for the driveway. Mike was bored so he drug his old (I mean really old) stereo equiptment out of the shed & hooked it up. Everything works except the turntable so if we want to spin our albums we will have to buy a new one. He also bought a sound bar & subwoofer for the TV. He also bought some shelves and his motorcycle has moved in. Here are pics.

LOL. It is his entertainment center all right enough. He is out there right now. He stayed out there until 11:30 on a work night one day this week. He does not understand why I don't want to be out there. I stayed out there with him for about 30 min a while ago, I was uncomfortable & the computer was slow out there so I came in to my comfortable couch. Once he has his SS in there I may never see him again. I will be out there when I need to work on Ruby or maybe an art project, otherwise I guess it is his man cave.

We set out today to clean up my dad's tool box (the craftsman one) and Mike's and move them into the garage. We ended up doing much more. Mike worked about 8 hours & me about 6 (I had stuff to do in the house first). Well we got a lot done and it was all stuff we needed to do at some point, but.............I am not happy. It just feels like to me we cleaned out the shed & junked up the garage. Mike says it is just temporary & that it will all end up looking nice & neat. I know he is probably right. I know we had an absolutely perfect day to do it. Anyway, here are pics of the stuff in the garage now. (not including stuff we put up in the rafters). Of course the Boulevard is still in there too.

It never fails. You make all this space for some cars and end up wondering why you can't get a car in there! I'm in that boat right now, lol. Looks great!

It looks like you are trying to keep it organized. Let me tell you some of the things I tried to keep the garage neat and clean. First throw or give away stuff you will never use it may be tough but it helps a lot. I also hang as much as I can on the walls (yard tools, ladder, etc) to free up floor space.

I also bought some inexpensive plastic wall cabinets and hung them on the walls to store smaller items and I also built a long shelf and hung it a little higher and I store things that I don't use as often on it like weed killers,washer fluid, gas cans. I hung the cabinets high enough so I dont have issues with the Camaro or Silverado doors hitting them. My biggest problem is finding space for all the yard machines like mower, weed wacker, lawn edger, snow blower (I know you probably don't have the last one but I need it here in NY) those take up a lot of space in the summer.

Fortunately I only park the Camaro in the garage in the summer and the Silverado lives outside. Our winter car is a Ford Escape and that lives outside year round because you cant fit 3 cars in a 2 car garage

Well part of the reason stuff ended up in the garage was because of cleaning out & organizing our small attached shed room and a bigger detatched shed. Our riding and push lawn mowers got kicked out of the big shed by Mike's Boulevard and a lot of other stuff had ended up in both sheds since we got the Camaros. Now there is room for the lawn stuff in the big shed again and now you can walk into both of them again. We have lots of plans for storage but will just have to do it gradually.

We picked up a few more things for the garage today, the cabinets from my parents house that they never installed and the first load of pegboard. We still have to mount the little extra counter top which will make a nice place to put a shop stool. Mike also set the fountain temporarily where it will go. It will have to move when they come to pour the concrete then it can return permanently.

And then let there be more light! Mike decided it was too dark & we bought a couple more lights & put them up this evening. He also got him a Man Cave stool. I did not hang around out there until he put it together. It is too dang cold here tonight! But here are a couple of pics. BTW we ordered come new wheels/tires for Ruby today!

Congradulations on the new garage. Wife and I are in the middle on planning to pit one up ourselves.
The cars look great and tell your husband he has a cool looking bike.

Might I suggest getting a floor paint/sealer. There are plenty of good quality ones out there. Dont want any oil stains on your new floor.

Yeah, floor sealer or some sort of flooring is on the to do list but not in the budget right now. But in due time.

Look what I made today:

I have been following this thread closely, you have inspired me and my friend to build our own garage to store our cars for the winter. He has a new 5.0 Mustang and I'm running a 2SS 2010 CGM. I love what you did with the outside of the garage and what your doing on the inside.

Thank you!

P.S. How much did the roofing end up costing you, because we figure that and getting the automatic doors will cost the most.

Glad you have enjoyed watching the thread & I hope your build goes well too. I don't know that the costs were broken down in that much detail by our builder. He just got the same shingles as our house has (it got a new roof not long ago). I would advise getting the wide doors. You will have to do a thread too. I may need some of your ideas. We will be doing the inside ourselves so things will slow down a good bit now. I just wish they would hurry up & get the driveway poured so we can start putting our babies in there.
