Default Let's See Your Garages!

Hi Everyone, I have a very small garage. It's a one car that's just big enough for my '78 SA and some work benches and my tools.

I'm trying to clean it up a little and I painted the floor over the weekend.

I was going to paint the walls too, but I think I'll leave them as they are. If I paint the walls, I'll need to paint the ceiling. Haha.

I'm going to let the floor dry for a few days and then return the benches, compressor, welder etc.

I'd like to see your garages. Maybe I'll get motivated to paint my walls, or I may just put the car back in and work on it.

So let's see'em! I'm sure we'd all like to get a look see.

Here's mine...

Hi,
Sometimes I think working in a 1 bay garage helps a person stay focused.
Regards.
Alan

What's up with this cord? You're not very organized.

I'd like to see your garages. Maybe I'll get motivated to paint my walls, or I may just put the car back in and work on it.

So let's see'em! I'm sure we'd all like to get a look see.

Here's mine...




I can work in either garage, both have plenty of light and electric heat if I need it. Both have benches, tools, etc. The best advice I can give is put in plenty of light, and paint the walls and ceiling white. Otherwise you will feel like your working in a cave.

The pole building I have originally had no ceiling, so I stapled white bubble insulation to the bottom of the rafters. Later I put vinyl soffit over that, added electric heat and a foot of blown in insulation. It's white, it's warm,....and even has a beer fridge!



For visual comparison, the garage at the house before I prettied it up..............
