Nice digs, and the woodie!
Great feeling to start with a basically blank canvas. That's what I'm working on, although it's only a 2-car.....

We've got a lot of 'old wagon' guys around, but few Fords of that vintage......

Nice Woodie? Never even noticed it as I was staring at the BMW wondering if that's a real '95 BMW M3 LTW in that garage. That's the rare beast!

Funny everyone here is a car guy we all get side tracked, so back to the ? where do i start with this garage i am ready too paint since this will be the only time it will be this empty. i guess i should keep looking through pics threads to get ideas.

Looks like a great workspace, the ceilings look pretty high, I would suggest planning for a lift, it is one of the best tools I purchased and as many have said, I have know idea how I got by without it.

Take your time and plan things out. even if the funds are not available today for things you eventualy want, plan for them in your design. Things like Air and electricity should be thought through while its empty and easy to install.

2 things I learned setting up my garage over the years that have worked out well for me;

first don't purchase a lower quality item because its what you can afford, wait till you have the funds till you get the features you need and want. it costs alot more purchasing it the second time after you purchase something and then have to sell it because it does not work well enough.

Second, have fun doing it. Don't turn the projects into stressfull chores or work. Keep a good sence of humor and enjoy the journey!

Looks like you got the right side started prety well already.

Cabinets with sliding doors. And mouse bait or snap traps so you don't end up with electrical problems.

Will the garage incorporate the stable and breezeway area too? Outlets, lighting, heat, insulation, water, storage, etc., etc., etc.; what's on your wishlist? What are the dimensions and how do you eventually want to make use of the total space allocated for your garage? If you can see it as your dream shop down the road, you can plan for that future image while you work on it today and your immediate efforts won't be wasted. The time you spend with a tape measure, pad, pencil, wishlist, six-pack (for inspiration), and a comfortable chair out there while you 'daydream' will pay off with big dividends later! Enjoy your new place and the journey you've begun.
