Re: Lets see your garage

I helped a friend build a big steel clad pole bldg. shop by his house that is in a small town. It's not exactly a hot real estate market where he is located, modest cost homes. He was upset when he went for an equity loan to pay off the bldg. expenses with they valued the place the same as a few years before. He had also built a new front porch and added solar panels on a new roof since. He should have looked into the loan first. I guess he used credit cards. He has a nice shop, but it's bigger than the house. Makes the house look small.

Re: Lets see your garage

The wife and I have been very diligent over the past 10 years paying the house off, we're down to about 4.5 years left. After appraisal we had something like 210K in equity because the value has gone up 85K since we bought it. I took out a 25K HELOC with 15K advance. I paid the first 30K of the build in cash. Been saving for quite a while. I hope to get out of it around 60K, fully finished with the lift. If I go a little over, no biggie. I just ordered the shingles, siding, and remaining sheeting from the place I used when I redid the house. Into it for 35K-ish so far. I have quotes for the doors ($$ because they're 10x10) and electric, after that all I have left to buy is sheetrock, insulation, and the lift... and get it all installed. Fun...

I know what you mean about musical cars. I'm down to 8 vehicles at the moment. And it's a pain when you want to get the last in line out (which is my motorhome) We took it out last weekend and I had to move all of the others out to the street. My wife said it looked like we were having a party.

Then I had to put them all back. It took me about an hour, but that includes having a beer and shooting the breeze with my neighbor.
I have the C10, 65 Mustang, 68 Firebird, 15 Z71, and my wifes 11 Mustang and a 1954 ford Golden Jubilee.

The plan is for the two mustangs to take refuge in the 22x24 attached garage, with all the crap out of there they should both easily fit. The Bird, C10 tractor and silverado will all fit in the new garage with room to blow one of them completely apart. The bird will be first up.

Update from post #20:

It's not really "my garage" but it is where my GTO is currently sitting -

Well, my smallest garage on this thread may not be much, but I built it with roofing & purlins left over from work I did on a Morton bldg., 2 x 6 Douglas Fir 2 x 6 rafters from a 3 car garage I helped take down, and the back posts and beam were already there. The siding I bought 7 pcs 10' and the rest is salvaged from a job. The windows are salvage, too, and the frames I made with the Douglas Fir 2 x 6. I had to buy Sakrete, posts, beams, corrugated metal, some of the 1 x 8 fascia material, gutter/downs/leaf relief, and hangers/fasteners. The whole thing is screwed and bolted. The paint I had from doing my house this summer. I still don't have a slab, wired, the other two walls or the 9' door. But so far I've spent $600. I have a conduit from the house for power I put in years ago. I figure about $1,500 complete. I already have lighting from my old shop

Re: Lets see your garage

Bought my house specifically for the garage. Itís hard to get a decent sized shop in the city limits, and Iím not willing to move to an acreage just yet. Maybe when the kids are older.

Itís 38í x 26í with a 9í x 34í car port on the back.

The only real crappy part about it is that I have to keep the heat at about 7degrees all winter as it has a a bathroom and thus running water. For some reason when they built the garage, they put the water meter in there. So i cant even drain the system in the winter. Just means I have work in there with regularity or else Iím just throwing money away.

Black Sheep. I think you need to clean your garage. I think I see a speck of dust in there.

Re: Lets see your garage

That's awesome Tim!

My earthwork, foundation, floor, block, and driveway is where most of the $ went. 30 truckloads of dirt were removed, we cut 5' out of the adjacent hill. Floor is 5" thick and we added footers for the lift. Ended up around 17K.

Black sheep, that's what I'm going for! I'm planning on an Orange/White/Blue paint scheme.

Mine will probably only ever be that clean the day it's done.

Nice. You are fortunate to have such a garage in town. I'm in the sticks and there is no place to locate anything that size on the property. Looking forward to moving where it can happen, or buy a play that already has what I need like you did.

My wife sneaks out there before I get home from work and cleans up, she's a little OCD about it. It didn't always look like that, while my '58 was being painted I gave the garage a much needed makeover. Before and after...

Well, you have a shop you stick built with continuous footers and foundation. That is a righteous building. Concrete will getcha. I had already graded for a 24 x 24 years ago. I had posts and beams up. I ran into trouble with my neighbors over other things and decided to abort that project. That was 12 years ago and after no building now I'm doing a shoe box. I got tired of the truck sitting out, knew I'd be moving in not too terribly long (I hope), and had all that laying around toward the materials. I have more money in the two 13' lengths of gutter, two downspouts, and Leaf Relief gutter covering than anything else. I used that old German siding and now it looks old like my house.

Re: Lets see your garage

After the concrete cured I picked up a lift from advantage lift in Pa. Fairly easy to assemble.

Re: Lets see your garage

Here is a night pic of my 25' x 40'. Need tall ceilings for a lift and mine is 13 ft. It also has central heat & air and surround sound stereo system. A soundproof room for the 80-gal air compressor. I can park 4 cars, three on the floor and one in the air.

Re: Lets see your garage

Kinda funny. Go check out my post (#82 in this thread) back in late 2019 and now a recent one. Same truck, only on the road now and a new project beside it.

Re: Lets see your garage

This is my 35x52 shop that I built in late 2019. We did most of the work ourselves. I am in the process of finally getting my bathroom finished. Been a long term project. Next is ceiling and central air. Already out of room!
