      I saw this in a movie about a bus that had to speed around the city, keeping its speed over fifty, and if its speed dropped, the bus would explode! I think it was called, "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down."

      Here's our garage.. it's a disaster right now, stuff all over the place, and we haven't started putting stuff on the upper shelves of the pallet rack. Some of the junk in there is going to go into the other garage, like the two old red toolboxes, and the table saws, etc. The lift has an air/hydraulic bridge jack that you can't see







      We're picking up some vintage equipment, got a 1939 delta metal bandsaw, a 70's? delta drill press, a 1904 p&w lathe so far. We have an old 60 gallon 2 stage compressor in the other garage that is going to get moved into this one, it'll be up on a shelf above the side exit door

      So glad this thread came to the top, dad came to me this week asking for help turing their 20'x40' detached barn into a man cave/garage. I'm starting the sketches now, hopefully will have some progress to post within a decent timeframe.

      I have a good idea of what I want it to look like, but I need help as to the shop area of the place, so I will spend a while browsing that.

      Here is my two car! This house was built in the 40's. Originally there was a single car, the bay on the right was added at another time. The two bays are divided by a cinder block wall with a small very old door separating the two bays. The left door was fixed shut, I have no idea for how long. All the windows are boarded up too. We are only renting so I'm not going crazy with it. Plus side is that the landlord is down for any fixing up I do and will take off any investment I make (well most of them).

      From the outside:


      From the front middle:


      Front corner:


      Rear corner, Note the craptastic garage door:


      Access to the attic:


      To the East:


      To the West:


      We plan on staying here for awhile so we can continue to save for our own place, or possibly purchase this house. So far I have replaced the Broken garage door and cleaned the left bay out. It has been bored up for years. Plus side is the bench and shelves that someone once built. I also have my cunstruction friends keeping eyes peeled for good windows so I can replace the broken boarded up old junk. Im also going to rewire the garage in the next few weeks. Its been rewired once already but half assed and the original stuff is still there too. Very bad job I might add. There was also enough sheets to hang on the ceiling and a 5 gallon bucket of white paint too. All the walls and ceiling will get a white wash.

      Not shown is the right side bay which has all the bicycles, kids toys, ramps, lawn junk....

      I'll update this week!

      What kind of man has so little control of his own being that to remind himself he is a man, a room is set up in his own house where manly items are set up out of sight from the black widow spouse taking up the rest of the house. Enough mancaves, lets see some MANsions.

      Update on garage build: just had the cabinets and stainless steel bench-top installed. Interior lights next week and then epoxy flooring. Taking too long, but we will be there soon!

      Half of my lock-up is coming along.. We'll get up shelves on the other side of the garage by the next week and sort all the mess out.. Do some welding on the red car and get the interior in.. Get my Mk2 winter stored in another building and get my Mk3 inside here.. I'd rather have a Ferrari 308 tucked inside but one thing at the time..
