FOR COLES NOTES TO THREAD PAGES SEE BELOW


Hello Everyone

Well first off i want to say how happy I am to have found this site. I frequent several car forums on a daily basis, with a special focus on euro cars. While cars have always been my focus, the vision of having an ultimate garage has always been an end goal of mine. My current set-up that I'm living in is a condo/garden home type unit with our own garage which was key in my decision to acquire this model. We started the process when i was 26 and we have been in it for about 4 years at this point. This is my first garage, along with my first home so it was a great step for me thus far. I don't have a lot of pics of the garage before the project started as i never intended to fix it up at all and i was more focused on my cars.

The winter has done wonders in giving me time for this project. Spring/Summer and fall i generally focus all my extra time on my dubs.

Here's an early pic before i got possession. The garage is 10' x 19'


I guess the first thing i attacked initially was installing a garage door opener with my father in law a couple years ago. Man was that a pain in the ass as there are 3 different ceiling heights in there and no wooden studs that we could tie into. Anyway lol...

This was my initial permanent set-up before finding this forum; functional and simple This site has influenced me tremendously with a ton of great ideas.






This was functional and lasted a couple of years. It also cost me next to nothing as everything was hand-me-downs.

I really wanted to clean up, get more light in there as well as organize it a little better. I can really relate to the members that I've read who also share the same trait of often sitting or standing in the garage and staring. Losing yourself in visions of possible efficiencies and style changes. It's a sickness...
