Down here in Australia I need to store my wife's Z4 like that.

More room for biles!

Yeah - the muffin tin (for bolts and stuff) really works well in concert with the cookie sheet (for tools). Only problem are these unexplained cravings for baked goods....

A small, paid-off house? That's downright un-Amurkhan. And very shrewd. Well done.

Built a new piece of equipment and hung it up today. So far, so good.





This freed up a large chunk of floor space in my shop, been wanting to do this for a while!

Hey - I love what you have done there. That is a very nice shop area you have put together. What are you going to do inside? Any framing and insulation or leave as is?

New Man Castle

Almost finished having a new 36x30' 3 car garage built. Real frost footers, real floor, 2x6" construction. Pro Panel II metal roof. James Hardie cement/fiber Hardie Plank siding. Walls are 11' to the roof trusses lowest point. Will house tractor, Jeep and bikes in the summer. This is at a little cabin we have in the mountains near Westcliffe, CO.

Needs concrete apron and gutters done and it's complete.






The inside is still uninsulated until next year. Will insulate and then either put up OSB or sheet rock. Then heat with a forced air heater.




View from the back of the garage to the Sangre's in Colorado:




These guys and my 950 will live there most of the time.






The doors are 10' tall so this 9' beast can live inside sometimes too.



Tom

Just got power out to my garage about a month ago. Picked up some used shelving from my dad that replaced a small and useless cabinet at the back. Also got a nice little cart for my welder for free as well. Might have to weld on a little bracket or loop to neaten the wires some but can't beat free.
