Another view of the "mobile man cave" doing what it does best during a mountain biking and kayaking weekend.

Thanks! I hope to have more pictures posted of the finished interior soon. Including some of the old Triumphs that call it home!

Even though it's not complete, the workshop is already seeing a lot of use. The woodstove is coming in very handy already. Drywall will be going into the workshop soon as will a bunch of shelving and work benches. The apartment above is almost done. Until then, I'll keep working around the clutter and the mass of moto-metal.

Love it! Here's my "Mobile Man Cave" loaded up for our trip to Custer, SD that we took this past July. It was a fun week!



We managed to take our FZ-1, my KTM 350 EXC-F, and my wife's KLX 250, plus our mountain bikes to keep ourselves entertained for a week.

In an attempt to not thread jack the "Let's see your man castle" thread, I'll post a link to a thread on thumpertalk that I put some info in.

http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/957...-one-of-these/

There's a good amount of information on there including my write-up of how I did my set up. Glad you like it- I know that my wife and I love it!

I added these horizontal file cabinets to help clean up the garage.



I also added this behind the garage to hold yard stuff and my dirt bike:






It was getting late so I just threw stuff in there. I need to organize, and add some shelves.

Since I got mine off CraigsList (New old stock), I have found that the original manufacturer doesn't make them anymore. However, they are now made by Duramax. Here is a link: http://www.durasheds.com/10x8_Westch...le_Walled.html



Mine was originally $1800, I paid $200, minus the base, which was another $170.

The advantage to these are the double wall construction with a firmer vinyl that is much more structually sound than the typical Rubbermaid sheds, and is smooth so cleaning is easier and mold does not stick well, and is easier to clean off.

After I put mine up it rained half an inch, no leaks.

By the way, they say two people, but I did the assembly alone, base and all. It took about 6 hours with the base, 4 for the shed alone.

That's beautiful - I admire a clean and organized shop. The presence of a shop vac is telling - I need to get one.
