Maybe I need Sanford & Son to drop by and take a truckload or two ............This garage/workshop is a lesson in how to stuff 10lbs of stuff in a 5lb bag .Way too much ! ! !

There you go Ken - no everyone knows how unorganized I really am .Hope you're happy ..........I'll revisit after soon renovations are done - or at least started .
Jack where are you going to put your first 69 Camaro that you were fixing up(add another garage.lol Great looking house and garage.
Ken, for your car lift, you can always modify the rafters to allow more room to lift the car, I was just explaining to a friend that he shouldn't think of installing a pit, since most cities and township have banned them due to poor ventilation and danger of explosions. I like this thread, nice to see great idea of real garages, not crazy expensive salons F1 race cars on the wall(real ones). Bert and Paul great ideas, hope you don't mind the R&D (rob and duplicate) Claude

Claude, Not sure I want to do that, but it is an option.

Jack, It looks like you have more tools boxes than cars. Don't tell me you actually turn wrench's. Then again they are probably empty.

Don't see any "beer boxes" aka refridgerators in your shops

You guys got some very nice looking shops, those lifts are trick

I am in a neighborhood (not a trailer park) that has excessive deed restrictions. Now I keep my car in a shop in Manvel Texas (they french kiss their sisters down there)

Ken - Yeah , I've got a few boxes but I really like the storage room in them - tools for all occasions .........and along the line I did learn how to use them .

I am in the planning stage and am considering 30x30 or thereabouts, a pit that can be covered instead of a space-intrusive lift, enough height for the trailer, doors at each end so could drive through and drop the trailer, etc.

Sounds good, I would go high for trailers and truck work also. I like the idea of the drive through too.

Drive Thur was always my dream but high enough is a must.
Trailer inside right next to the race car is just great. I guess I have too many tools now?

Paul, that would be the ultimate, to have your race rig inside and able to unload in your garage.

Thank you Ken

When I get a chance I will try and get some more photos.

Yes it has been a dream of mine for a long time and I have been working on the trailerand it works so good. I am at the point that maybe some of the stuff I have in the shop could be re-purposed elsewhere.
