In my last garage I used the space up high right above the garage door and along the sides as far as the rails ran. Great space out of the way only downside is that you need a ladder to get stuff down. I was real happy with it.

Here is a pic of the back side of the garage but it will give you the idea.

I used Elfa shelving since it was the yearly half off sale at the container store but there is also a similar version at Home Depot that is a little less. The yearly sale should be in the next month or so.

Don't forget about the forgotten space above the garage door when open. I installed small atv winches to pulleys to lift and lower small platforms and hardtops in the past.

I may have a higher opening along one of the bottom sections for extra body panels I've been storing, so that may be a bit higher. I like the idea of lift-up strut style doors, and I'll probably keep that top section open for my Oztent, etc. which I can just slide out from the top of the stairs.

Josh,

another option could be relocating the stairwell ( maybe straight down if not so tall ) and you can take advantage of the wall to the left on the pic.

or

Like your diagram , but leave the bottom of the structure open so you can easily slide the nose of the vehicle under it

Updated now with a lift so the British vehicles can make an aerial oil attack on the axis powers.

Is that a Mitsubishi 3000GT under that cover on the left?

My money is on late '80's or early '90's Porsche full size 928 or 968 (No rear lip wing peeking so not likely a 944) with a Jag up top.

Laws of deduction, my man. Laws of deduction. ;-)

Axis = Japan and Germany (too big a vehicle to be Italian)

"Powers" = plural (not just the Mazda.)

Tire profile looks too high to be any more modern than a late 90's sport and the rear haunches are too high to be a Mitsubishi 3000. But I'd take even money that I'm wrong ;-)

Jaguar XK on the lift. Porsche Boxster on the left. Not at Automotorplex so only a visitor at CandC. Boxster and D90 are mine Miata and Jag are not. The picture is a bit deceiving as you are looking at the back of the Boxster. D90overkill gets the prize for closest.

Seriously Guys ??
175 posts and not one with a woman in the Garage assisting in maintenance, though I did see 1 bitch .... maybe.

This thread should have been titled, "Most boring garages are those who own Land Rovers Owners".

Remember "they" MUST be in the garage.

Oh boy, we have a "thick" crowd here.
Maybe we need to revisit the topic in the spring when cut-offs and bikini tops are being worn again.

Thanks, yours too; 986 is a nice tractor. Mine is a 782 and the one in back is a Massey Ferguson 16.
