Default Hoosier Audi Garage

Thought I would start my own thread on my, new to me, garage in Southern Indiana.
My wife and I purchased a house back in April and spent about 9 weeks working on the house before we actually moved in (paint, carpet, counter tops, appliances, faucets, kitchen cabinets, etc).
Here are a few pictures of how the garage was when we took possession of the house.





It's an 'oversized' 2 car that measures 25.5' deep x 26.5' wide with 10' ceilings, that seems huge compared to my last garage (24' deep x 20' wide).
That extra 6 feet on the width, makes a big difference.

Finally, after all of the house projects were mostly done, we moved in.
Most of you know, towards the end of the move day when you're tired, worn out and not sure where things go, they end up in the garage.

After a week or so of recovering from the move, I finally started on the garage.
First I removed all of the existing shelving from the walls, then started to patch a "few" holes.





It seems as though the previous owner had given the neighborhood kids a few BB guns and told them to go at it in the garage. Good grief!

So after the hole patching. I started on the paint. My two previous garages had white paint on the walls, so I decided to throw a little color to spice things up. I went with gray. With a darker gray for the trim/cabinets.





Then I started hanging a few things on the wall.
I hung the Stop Sign up first, then my original location for the tire rack didn't work out, so the Stop Sign was moved after this picture was taken.

I have an Audi Allroad twin turbo, and I'm considering an S4 convertible right now!

So yes, more pics please - or at least some we can see!

Here are the Audi's that make up the "Audi" part of the title. Sorry no pictures of the cars in the garage, yet.
Q7 S-Line
B7 S4 25 Quattro
The B5 S4 was sold after the purchase of the B7.

With the painting done. I started on purchasing new cabinets, setting up the workbench and organizing all of the stuff. I went from two 4' wall cabinets to six, plenty of room for now, but I'm sure I will want more later.
Here is how the garage looked last night after some major cleaning.

Cool B7 S4 with the factory body kit, not something you see everyday.
Nice storage in that garage.

I do have one picture of the S4 in the garage, kinda. It just shows how much room I have between the front of the car and the workbench.
Obviously, the Q7 takes up a little more room, but my wife wasn't home when I snapped this picture.

This is great, i knew it would be something i would enjoy the further i scrolled down. Then i saw the Hartman wheel boxes Are those the stock b7 S4 bumpers, or did you swap to RS4 pieces? BTW always been a huge fan of the B5 S4, just could never afford the maintenance haha.

Keep up the good work.

I like it. Looks like you are pretty set for storage! I'm subscribing just in time to see you put the finishing touches on. An alloy/graphite and red RaceDeck floor would look pretty sweet in there. Nice stable of Audi's, too.

Thanks...a little inspiration came from your garage, among a few others on here.
Yes, the S4 is completely stock. Its one of the 25quattro edition cars, only 250 made. The body kit is very similiar to the DTM Package you could get on the 07 S4's.
The B5 was very reliable for the 10 years I had it. The only big item (read $$) that let me down was the alternator ($700 to replace).

Thanks Rick. I've been subscribed to your garage for awhile now. I keep going back and forth between yours and dubbers. Not sure if I'm ready to pull the trigger quite yet on the RaceDeck. But I love the look of it.
