Talking Shumai Garage

Recently purchased a house in Orange County, CA. 3 car garage but with a tandem. This is my first ever garage remodel. Ive been browsing through this forum for weeks before pulling the trigger. Heres what we have so far


Purchased some New Age cabinets from Costco on sale for a good price. Thank god they come assembled, luckily none were damaged




Went to lowes and picked up some gladiator cabinets. The 48x72" tall cabinets and the 28" wall cabinets





New garage opener, my room is right above the garage and the previous one drove me nuts. Hope this one will get the job done




Painted the lower half with dunn edwards dark gray in velvet finish. Upper half is also dunn edwards light gray velvet.




Red strip painted on. Used a laser level, made my life much easier





Behr epoxy purchased from home depot. Was going to get the rustoleum but found out you could get this in a custom color, so I went with the Behr in a dark gray. Turned out pretty good for my first time I think




Oh random, but I saw the biggest dog of my life on the way to Home Depot. Owner said it was a European Great Dane. I swear he filled up the whole truck bed. Some kid even asked the owner if that was a cow haha




New Age cabinet system put up. Didnt have time to put on the legs on the taller cabinets yet. But loving these cabinets so far! The garage isnt really this clean, dont be fooled. I spent 20min tossing everything over to the other side just to get a clean photo haha.




Heres where all the junk is, still have many boxes outside which I need to move in soon since the weather forecast says it will rain in a few days

Got most of the Gladiator Garageworks cabinets assembled and installed today. The 28" wall cabinets were easy enough to install by drilling into the studs and having a piece of wood underneath for support. Tried to do something similar with the larger cabinets by lifting it up on top of the black concrete portion sticking out on the wall and using that as support. But didnt work out too well, the front of the cabinets kept flexing and the doors wouldnt shut properly. Decided to just go with their track system. Hopefully it comes in soon!


Still need to paint the wood underneath the wall cabinets that are supporting it up to match the wall color

Just got my LG washer dryer delivered by home depot. 5.2 cu ft washer and 7.3 cu ft dryer w/ steam.





Also picked up a store display husky top chest for a steal, manager let me have it for $50 because there was some scuffs on the top and it was very dusty. Score!





Loaded the box up with some new tools I just purchased recently. Gearwrench ratcheting wrenches and gearwrench 120xp ratchets. Never heard of gearwrench before this forum, but they are amazing so far!

Wow! Looks too nice to use. I used Dunn-Edwards Taliesin Blue Flat for the bottom part of my garage. I really like using this paint. It covers well per coat and is so easy to apply, besides, I already had two gallons left over from painting the house. The floor and curb really set off the rest of the garage. Good job!

Haha thanks! Are you basing it off the stickers on my open shelf? Those are a all the stickers ive collected over the years, had no place to put it so I stuck it on the shelving. As of right now I dont have a car since I recently sold my previous car. On the search for a new one as we speak. Oh and here are some photos of my previous cars if anyone is curious
















Okay thats enough reminiscing for this thread haha

My garage is extremely similar to this I'm so happy you posted this. I've been trying to figure out how to set my garage up. I'm assuming you're not planning to use the third space for parking?

Yes, the third space in the tandem area will just be used as a work station. I would love to be able to park a car there but the garage isnt big enough for 3 cars + a work station. Do you have a build thread for your garage? I would love to see
