      I love the variety in there.

      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..

      The garage floor epoxy paint is now finished in medium brown with tan, black, white flakes. Lights to be installed this week. Cars in by end of November!

      Those are some interesting light fixtures. Why so many sockets?

      Thanks all for the feedback... and Erik: I also agree on your very nice "lock-up". I just wonder: who exactly is getting locked up? You or the cars? I like all the seating options! I'll come drink a beer in those seats while you work on the collection.

      To Barry: We had a decent discussion on lighting options in a thread title "Can lights vs fluorescent tubes in garage". As I mentioned there, the ending set-up for me was 18 large ceiling cans (using compact CFLs), 10 mini ceiling cans, plus 3 large "drum" lights (6 x 100W each) down the center and 12 wall sconces. It should light up well, being able to dim and select lighting to show cars or wall art, or have a poker party, etc. For working on the cars, I will have a portable high-intensity tower unit I can move around. 140 amp panel in the garage will also ensure I can charge electric cars. Luckily, I also have 11.2 kw of solar to make it all "free" electricity ;-).

      That's a massive garage. You must be anxious for it to be done.

      Since this thread has been bumped, how's your garage looking?
