Back in the early 80's when living and working in upstate NY I brought my BMW R100RS motorcycle into the living room for the winter, and rebuilt the engine in the kitchen. Seemed like a perfectly normal thing to do while the 911 occupied my 1 car garage and the old (t)rusty Saab sat out in the snow.

Engine rebuild and assembly.......

I did one when my wife went to Sydney, Australia a few years ago. It motivated me to get it done before her arrival back home. Right now, she is back again in Australia visiting her mother. Guess what? I got one in the basement partially assembled at the moment. And I got 3 weeks left before she comes home.

I recall my dad removing head studs from a 911 case in the den many years ago. I haven't done an engine in the house, but I did swap out rim halves in the living room for 3 piece wheels for the racecar!

Closest Iíve come is building a wiring harness on the dining room table. The original one I was using as a template was unbelievably filthy in spite of my attempts to clean it before taking it inside.

I will admit as a teen to building my motorcycle engine in the den of my parents house while they were on vacation. 911 engine is too heavy to do in-house, but fortunately I now have my own garage.
