mother of all garages

Been working on this all summer two stories + full height lofts. Cars down below ,Bikes and rec. room up top. Its one hell of a lot of work building something you just dont realize how much until you start doing it.

Dieselman - I know how you feel - my last two projects (shop -4th of 4 -and barn-1st and last) where huge. I loved the first half of each stage, then had to force myself to get the last 25% done, so I could start the next stage. But it was worth it each time!

Hang in there - when you are out there working on a toy and it is below freezing outside, you'll love it. Just turn up the music and change the oil!!!

How tall is the ceiling to fit the lift in there?

12 foot walls gives maybe 6" of clearance for the 10K LB Rotary lift.
Also enough room for a 4' mez. over 8' of the shop seen to the left.;

+1 on this, I'm in the final stage , at first I was very motivated, but now I have to kick me in the butt to get there and make this thing happen.
Life threw me a couple bricks lately, but I'm getting back in there ASAP.
Dieselman, that's a very nice garage you got there, keep it up, you won't regret it !!

Dang, I just wish I knew how to work some of the equipment you guys have let alone actually have that equipment and a place to put it. If anyone in my area ever needs an extra set of hands to help on part of their project just give me a shout.

I'm somewhat, kinda, sorta knowledgeable on the concepts but a n00b on the experience side of wrenching bikes beyond adding farkles and basic maintenance. I'm reading all I can on a couple of sites and have read several books. Would love to help any way I can on more advanced stuff.

Split Castle

Here's mine nicest space I have had in my life . Shared with my wifes car. I guess if I want cooked meals the car stay's inside.
No room for the bikes up here. Slowly some kids stuff is working it's way in.







There is a 95 Jag living in the driveway perfect with a leaking sunroof. The bikes live in the basement. I'd love to build a huge shop but I live on a freaking hill that makes for a very expensive foundation.





The bikes usually get worked on in the basement, heated by uninsulated pipes for upstairs.
