I used to think that having a three car garage was a great thing, but now after seeing some of the ones shown above, I wouldn't mind getting out of town into the desert (our countryside in this neck of the woods - sort of speak) where I could build my own 50'Wx100'Lx20'H garage that could house my cars and RV. Hmmm...if I did that, I may have to go back to work.....(not).

That's a real garage Citcapp.
Reminds me of every place I hung out at as a youth.

Anybody can work in a perfect garage with all modern conveniences, doesn't mean they know what they're doing.
Those guys know enough to afford to pay for it so they must know something.

My dentist buddy got a divorce and of course his car lifestyle-hating wife got the house so he had a big metal warehouse built in an industrial park.
He has lifts and all the tools, really nice cars and bikes, in the one corner is a walled off bachelor pad living area, I hate him.
I worked at a brain surgeons house who had the nicest wood shop with every hand and power tool known to man and the guy built birdhouses.
The box with a gnawed through hole in one side and two board hunks for a roof type.
He always kept saying he wanted to trade jobs with me.

I liken your work conditions to Michelangelo lying flat on his back way up on a rickety scaffold painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel by candlelight Citcapp.
Look how that turned out.

Is there a spot that you can set something on without something sitting on it in there Citcapp?

The garage at my house looks like citcapp's. I don't think there is much space available to put something else in it. Right now my Olds is in it so there is not a lot of room even though it's a 2 car garage I can only put 1 car in it. My mother built a new house about 1 & 1/2 years ago and put an attached 3 car heated , finished garage with in floor heating That is where I had my Olds last winter to work on and where I plan on having it this winter but right now my 90 Astro van is in there and I have to fix her up cause I have decided to give it to my 17 year old son. have to get it out soon. i have a basement of every woodworking tool needed to create furniture and I have done lots up until about 2 years ago when I started working on old cars. Starting with the 23 model T and the 29 madel A finally to the 52 Chev. Now those cars are all gone and I have the Olds which has my attention now. I guess I have changed hobbies for a little while and don't know if I will have a chance to get back to woodworking , maybe if I need things like shelving for the garages

You could get a gallon of oil on the floor in there and nobody would ever even notice.

I'm a carpenter by trade and if I can't build furniture with a hammer, drill, skilsaw and belt sander forget it.


Pssst...look Sandy, you-know-who is a few posts up.

For many years I worked my way up from no garage, to a one car, then a 2 car, then to a 4-car, to finally to my present 6-car detached carbarn with a 2-car attached garage. I'm finally have *my* dream garage.
Even with the 4 car garage, I muttered to myself during the winters, as I scraped windows on the daily drivers, realizing that if I weren't such a pig and only had 2 Oldsmobiles, I could still get both daily drivers in the garage.
But I finally reached the saturation point (thankfully) and want no more than I have of both cars and garages. Semi-sanity finally took over. I don't want any more building to heat, among other things, for example. Only so much time, $$, energy, etc.

I have a dream garage.
Oh wait!
I need to move those bikes out of the way for the wrecker to drop the olds into the garage.
Oh No! The trike is in the way. Let me move it before the cutlass breaks it.
Let me move those golf clubs that I use once a year. There're in the way!
Do I really need to take the kids to soccer practice? I was going to work on the car today.
Yes. I have a dream car garage. I dream about it every time I walk through it.
no worries. My life is good. My cup runneth over.

TGJ is a pretty good site. I am there a bunch trying to learn about what else? Garages ! My shop is my 3rd and not the way I'd do it next time.
(Oh I really hope there is NO next time)
Great ideas on space managment and some eye candy of course.
I like the low buck, homemade, creative stuff.
The Glass floor, oak trim exotic stuff gets boring quickly. Good to have variety though. (nonhog there too)

I have stored two cars this the winter to free up space for another DD. My kids are driving now and I need the space so they don't have to scrape/brush the snow off. I hate winter. As soon as I'm done in Chicago (trading floors, hence job are located here) I'm gone.

I built a garage addition at my home about 3 years ago. The Garage Journal was invaluable to me in getting the job done. Here are some photos of the construction of the garage:

http://www.garagejournal.com/forum/s...ead.php?t=5865

I either did the work or had it subbed. Much work but a lot of fun. I built a paint booth in the last bay and am having a good time in retirement doing some paint/body on some old muscle cars.

Oh...That's a relief, but who am I to judge.

I though you meant Allan R. was getting "curious" about something else when you told me to check out this thread Sandy.

Our "Secret" friend hasn't been around?

Maybe he caught wind of the twin jubilee celebration and started walking??
I still don't think he even has a car, maybe not even a license???

I looked and his longest post was 30 words and I think he copied and pasted those, 6-7 word average on the rest of the posts.
He gets right to the point, maybe he could teach me a few lessons?

If we didn't like you we wouldn't talk about you mystery person... plus any attention is better than being ignored and I bet you agree, I can see it in your eyes.

Nice garage 442much. I especially like the couch so you can stare at your nice car after you get done polishing it! Who needs a tv when you got that to look at. Hopefully your wife doesn't mind you spending your time out there with the other woman.

30 words??? You sure about that? Wow! I musta missed that one! LOL!! I have noticed he's not been around... It's just not the same...

I am still wondering about the car - or lack of one The big jubilee isn't until August, so he might just make it!

Trying to fix up my 90 Astro van to give to my 17 year old kid so he can destroy it too It' going to be my graduation , xmas and birthday gift. I will make it clear that if he wrecks this one it will be the last one from me, I think we need to have a little talk about how to take care of an older vehicle. I have 1,300 into it so far and a new safety inspection sticker on it. Finishing up some bodywork and then it's up to him to make sure it last's him. I think he will want to keep this one longer though cause it comes with a 2600 watt stereo system and if he wrecks it then I will take it back and junk it.

Good luck Wolfman,

Raised three boys, only one got the car gene. To many cars to remember bit the dust with those three. No the oldest is going through it with his girl friends son. We my son complains I just smile at him, pisses him off a little.

The first car his mom bought him and the second was bought by his grandmom both were hyundai wagons and could not stand up to the beating he gave them. I am probably a hard father to please but have always been a man of my word. He knows this implicitly , I always say never make threats only promises. That's what I have always done with him and he is at least very respectfull of his elders and has worked part time while going to school. He also does pretty well in school but in his free time he hangs out with some guys who goad him into doing stupid things. i don't know if I will be able to teach him how to deal with pier pressure but When I tell him that if he wrecks this one he will get no more from me then he knows it's a fact. Tough love , I don't think so . i think of it as teaching resposibilty.
