build the biggest one you can afford or have room for. It will get filled up.

My problem was at the time the Company I worked for was closing.They let me have a lot of the equipment and I had no place to put it. The cement pad was already here in front of an old house trailer I use as the machine shop. So I was in a rush and built this in a weekend by myself. If I had more time I would have built it bigger and in a better spot in the yard. I can't go wider either because the lawn outside of this is my Nephews great grams favorite spot in the yard. So... for now I have to settle working in my closet :D

You asked for the good, the bad, and the ugly.......right? Well, I have a much loved garaged that gets lots of use and every once in a while will get a good cleaning.When I'm in the midst of a project though there is precious little garage time as it is so the cleaning and organizing is going to have to wait.

Can you spot the fire extinguisher?

And even a little room for Christmas lights.

Here's a few pictures of the Man-cave.. Lot's of tinkering goes on in there..

This is @ our old house late in fall with the tractors all snug for the winter:


We bought our present house in 2003 and I put in a 28' x 48' 'shed' up in 2005..

Here's a picture from this spring when I sold the boat.. :boo_hoo:

This is the storage side of the barn:

Here's where the 'magic' happens!!:

Ok, here is mine. It is 24'x12'. I made a lot of room last week, and sometime soon (this weekend, possibly) my uncle will be coming over with plywood to help me make some storage space. After the storage is complete, everything (except the chop saw) along the left wall, from the snowplow back will be put away. I have a bunch of other stuff scattered around that I am also going to put up there.

The garage was an addition to my house sometime ago. The well was located right where the garage was put, so now the well is under that piece of steel in the middle of the floor. The piece of steel is elevated about 8 inches above the rest of the floor. There is a slope connecting the two different heights that makes working difficult at times.

About a year ago, the garage was a MESS! The toolbox was almost empty, because everything was on the workbench. Since then, I have organized every corner of the garage at some point or another. And now, finding the things I need is much easier and I can work much more efficiently. As long as the gnomes return my tools...
