It was 2007 when I first posted to this thread and I've cleaned up some since then so I thought an update was in order!

Original post:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...8&postcount=94

I just got done putting a Hot Dawg heater in the house garage and a 120,000 btu house heater in the shop garage. We're in the process of wiring the shop so there are lots of extension cords powering the lights from a brand new 100 amp service

The house garage now:






The shop interior:












My favorite gadget, the new heater:




The shop exterior (from my '07 post):



Just a little update on the (slow) progress

They are tool boxes in a wall mounted rack. Lowes used to carry them.

I keep stuff like abrasives, gloves, safety glasses, and rags in them. They work pretty well.

^The way the color matches the floor, I thought it was floating in mid-air!

Thanks, guys.

I made the lift adapter. I'll take a pic this weekend and post it up. Next I'll have to make one for the KLX250S...

And assume the liability if you have issues with your lift when you use only one side to lift several hundred pounds.
