Looks awesome! What size is the shop? Also what is the ceiling height? I like how all the structure is gray or silver instead of the maroon color you normally see. Did you paint them?

Re: Let's See Your Garage / Workshop !!!

RidgeRaceCars, that bathroom reminds me of a buddy's old house. they had a black bathroom but all black. ceiling, walls, light switch, everything was black.

That Charger needs a Alternate Tinkering write up!

Re: Let's See Your Garage / Workshop !!!

@ridgeracecars... i'm thinking about getting a structure similar to yours.

i found a great deal on a 48'x48' steel building. also a 30'x90'

what do you wish you did differently with your structure? how many cars can you get in there and still be functioning? could you fit 2 lifts and still be functional? how about room for an over head crane?

I'm thinking 30x90 is the hot ticket because i can take a 20x30 space and make it into body paint wood working shop and not get the rest of the space dirty and dusty... and that would leave me 70x30 for for the mancave.

i have similar ideas in mind... garage bar, man cave, hot rod shop, cigar lounge and weekend party, family get together space...

thanks... thats why i am leaning to a 90x30... that will give me ability to have a dirty dusty enclosed area for sanding paint or what have you....

i am also thinking about a central vacuum system with multiple ports and of coarse plenty of quick conects for air hoses/tools.

Here's a few pics of my current project. Once it's all closed up, the wall between the old garage and the new addition will be knocked down so it will be one wide open space
