I even started a a brush fire grinding the old hood hinges off my bulkhead. Besides, that basement has alot of potential. Just be careful if you are using stripper, or doing any painting down there. The fumes have a way of infiltrating into the house. I tried that once, my wife wasnt impressed.



Dave looks like you did one of those 3 point turns that Josh did for his Badger pic. Impressive!

The D90 actually goes in quickly...I just back it into the garage and then parallel park it...

My ratio is down a bit as the Sport is now gone and we are temporarily a two rover family.

Here is a better shot of the floor and the D tucked away for a salt-free winter nap:

Here's where mine live now. This is a shared shop space with some other gear heads. Its about 45' wide and 180' deep. My little chunk is about 20' x 17' but there is a large amount of common space. Hoping to have compressed air plumbed all thru the space soon and get the blast cabinet set up too. Sure beats the driveway.

I am in the process of adding a 24x29 garage addition myself. I also raised the door on one of my existing garage doors to make sure I could go higher or get a vehicle with a rack on into that garage.

The outside is basically done, but I have lots to do inside, including work on the now expanded laundry room. I'll get some more interior pictures as it progresses. I should have taken a picture, but last week I had my truck with trailer attached in the new garage (with a few inches to spare).

Looks great, Charles! I can only imagine the hoops you had to jump through to get the permit approvals to build so close to your neighbor's property line!

Yes i measured down to inches to get it to fit. But oddly enough I was constrained more by an easement on a drain that runs along the property line, and if not that, then a rule that limits how close my structure can be to an adjacent structure. Otherwise I'm allowed to build to the edge of my property line if you believe that! We pack them in like sardines here. My 1/3 acre is a "large" lot. LOL.

I had planned on making it about 7 feet deeper to be able to put a lift in the back comfortably, but my neighbour didn't want me blocking his view (of my back yard/woods). I could have fought them and won since I meet all the requirements/restrictions, but it isn't my intent to piss off my neighbours so I scaled it back. This limits it's functionality somewhat, but is still awesome

Did you do the work yourself to raise the header on the garage door opening? I need to do the same work and am looking for someone who has themselves

No. Lucky for me the original construction had the header up high so there was nothing structural to do.

Charles, very nice. Be sure to take a pic with it done...and empty. I never did, and it wont ever be empty again. Is that my room above the garage when I come to stay?

Matthew, While I didnt do the header on my garage, I have done it myself when I framed houses in college, so it can be done. How big is your header, and how high is it going?...PM comming

Here's mine minus the 110 as it is stored for the winter and will be getting a new gal frame this winter. Two pictures from the first and two from the second floor.

Sand Glow Yellown Garage

I've been redoing my garage over the past 2 months. It has been to dark and unorganized. I added 4 panels of lights on the ceiling. The ceilings are close to 16 ft high so I re-tracked the garage doors to lift close to the ceiling. Added tire holder on the back wall. I am still am looking for a lift so my friends and I can work easier. I was going for Sand Glow Yellow on the walls. I am looking for a Camel Trophy Decal for the back wall to tie it in better. And added the powder coated cabinets since my old ones that sat on the ground absorbed to much water and slush and started to get moldy at the bases. Not sure how long it will look this neat and organized, but I expect working will be easier!
