When I finally got the garage I always wanted, I thought, Oh Boy!! I'll have all the room I need now...yeah right!! Over the years, my garage has filled up with lots of stuff that is used all the time. This past Spring, I weeded out everything I felt I could do without and the result was STILL a crowded garage.I try to not bring home any new stuff but sometimes a good deal comes along that can't be passed up. For example, my son brought home a bagger assembly for our JD walk behind for $30.00 !! I made a couple of brackets and braces and it was on the mower. Now, the garage is just a little more crowded again. I knew I should have built it a little bigger!!

That's the problem with those garages, they don't expand as we collect things.

Well you know....
If you get those vehicles out of there and leave them outside you'll have alot more room to store the Garden tractors and equipment :D
There hasn't been a car/truck in my Garage in years LOL

What is that flat surface under and around the cars? Oh yeah, the floor, I think the garage may still have one, haven't seen it in years. :rofl2:

Wives have a hard time understanding why the garage needs to be larger than the house. There is never enough room for the treasures a man must have.

That's like my garage, plenty of storage space, got a minivan in one side, then the 555ABH plow, 630, engine hoist, sawhorses, press, two air compressors, RX75 rear engine rider, and a 345 which is under work. Plus the workbench. The work area is a bit crowded, but there's enough walking space. I'm brining two more mowers home soon so hopefully I can get the other two out.

I have a 30 X 40 pole barn, and it is very crowded!
Just last week my wife said it was time to straighten the barn so the motorcycles could go from the garage (by the house) to the barn so that she could park HER car in the garage!

Wow! Sounds like she's getting a little pushy. :thumbs:

Having enough space has something to do with Murphy's law.

My 24 x 24 is full with none of our driver vehicles. I have 3 snowmobiles, a race car project (in a million pieces), my CC129, plus all my tools equipment and my own personal hardware store. I did not even have room for a 129 for sale 5 miles from here for 200 bucks. I need a real big garage, like 40 x 60 on up!!

Toy boxes are simply NEVER big enough !! I don't know if that is Murphy's Law or not, but it is an undeniable FACT !
