The Garage Thread

This thread is for any cool garage pics and ideas you'd like to share. I'm in the process of mancaving my garage so I'd love to explore all ideas.

For fellow Pelicans like Jack Olsen this may be been there and done it, but please share your ideas, questions, pics, likes, dislikes, etc.

I would expect this to turn into a random garage pic thread, that's cool. I don't think we have one yet.

I actually don't find large garages appealing. I left a four car 12' height garage back in the midwest. There was too much space. I didn't feel at home in that space. 480 sq foot is a little tight, but I wouldn't want much more.

Post it. Only one of the pictures above look like a real work space. I have no time for overdone parking spots. I have a lot of time for practical work areas.

While that is a significant resource, 95% of that site is something between wall studs on one extreme and a kitchy Cracker Barrel restaurant at the other extreme.

And lighting, it's like a complete afterthought.

I did find a few pics to review though, thanks

There's a great invention called a shed. I think it should hold what most people throw in their garages.

I want a man-cave-garage, a place where I actually want to spend time and get away from my wife.

Garage and showroom, not the same thing. Don't get me wrong, some beautiful pictures posted, but it's not a garage without stains.

I'm dealing with carb and intake leak issues currently...

There's also a disease called hoarding. The sheds are full!

Shed 1: Camping gear, skis, random tools (like tile saws/etc...)


Shed 2: Spare FUCHS wheels and winter tires for cars....

Here's what I'd like, a space where I want to be. I don't want to see anything that doesn't need to be there. This is an extension of the house with all the creature comforts shared with marvelous automobiles.
