Garage Design

The Carport

Often times, garages become workshops and cars find themselves left out in the elements. The most cost effective solution for this is the carport. Problem is, most carports lack thoughtful and elegant designs. And that got me thinking – we need a thread dedicated just to car ports. A gallery of sorts for people to browse.

If you have images of carports that go beyond the typical metal structure, post them as a reply!

The White Shop

So I’ve got a friend in the Porsche world that is getting ready to redo the inside of his professional shop. Like me, he grew up in Formula 1 shops… but unlike me, he’s actually disciplined enough to keep an all white shop clean and tidy. Plans call for a white epoxy floor, white Lista boxes, etc… He’s going the whole nine.

Anyway, I though it might be interesting to start a gallery thread of sorts. If you’ve got images of all white (or mostly white) shops, post them as a reply!

And frankly, I planned to continue down that same┬ápath when I started the new shop. My initial plan was to buy a couple of 44″ Harbor Freight boxes and then build a “Steevo inspired” workbench around them.┬áThat all changed once Joe from Motorhead Extraordinaire heard of my venture.
