    Worked a little more on my workbench and organization in the garage tonight. Putting up redneck peg boards (plywood with drywall screws) to hold some of my tools, hung a few of the license plates for decoration... made room for my new rolling heavy parts rack (black heavy gauge wire rack).

    Still have a lot of stuff to get put away and a couple more of the tall grey shelves to drag out of my storage shed along with the parts stored on them. Goal is to leave room to park a car in there in the winter if I don't have a project taking up some of the space.

    Won't ever see that around my home... I've never had a drink. It would take too much money away from my hobbies.

    That is working pretty good for the work bench... now I just need a couple more to hang from the rafters in the area where I will end up working on the vehicles (mostly with the nose in the garage and door open).

    Concrete floors are nice... makes me glad to be out of the muddy flood prone yard I had before this, but I still miss the large shop I had on the other side of the state where I could pull a rig in and still have room to work around it. But as long as I keep remembering the flooded yard and portable garages climbing trees at the last place I will be happy!

    Hey, you're like me! ... however, I suspect you'll get banished to The Garage for talking like that in The Lounge =))

    99% of the guys around here can respect someone who chooses not to drink. Those who can't are not the kind I would hang around with anyway.

    Lookin' good Kenny!

    Joe Bunker over on Snort built his sick buggie in a tiny one car garage... so it can definitely be done... you just have to be more creative with the space/storage! :thumb: The place we are looking at has a niiice 2 car that would be perfect. The width is the real key, I gotta be able to move around a rig to work on it very well. Are you a member on the garage/shop forum? Some very good ideas over yonder. I forget who it was that turned me on to the site, but its pretty much the CK5 of shops....

    http://www.garagejournal.com/forum/

    what I like aboot that site is that they cover allll kinds/sizes of shops. There are guys with 60'x100' shops... guys with tiny single car garages, and everything in between. I pretty much just lurk over there for now... but once I actually buy a house, I'll definitely be bouncing ideas off those guys.

    As far as the lushes in the lounge and not drinking... I don't think there are any militant lushes here, the types who would look down on you or something for not drinking. Thats a good thing. I don't drink anymore because I can't, haven't got any crap for it yet. :)

    I used to have all my stuff cramed in a one car garage.

    I guess since the thread is titled "Garage pics thread" I will throw in some of mine.

    damn, thats a pretty nice garage X. Plenty of room in there to work, and you don't have crap piled all over the floor either. ;)

    Thanks man. That is the whole reason I bought the house. It helps that I keep a bunch of the extra parts in the walkout basement.

    I hear ya. I have a shop at my rental... but the wood floor isn't park-on-it capable like a concrete one would be, and I don't want to sink a dollar into making it better (ain't mine!). That means I have no cool storage solutions or anything else like that... all my junk pretty much lays around on the floor of the shop. Sucks. Thats ok tho, I'm buying soon...

    I wish mine had a door in the back of it for some air flow.

    Major improvement! I'm in the middle of an engine swap, so my purdy floor got deflowered and the truck is in there sideways.

    As long as I can still get to the fridge, it's all good :wink1:
