    The Garage/Shop Thread

    When i'm snooping build threads on the various sites i often find myself spending a odd amount time checking out whats happening in the background. Maybe i'm just strange. So lets see that home away from home that you probably spend too much time in.

    This is where the build started. It sucked. Barely made it out of the garage when i was done. I gave it a cool paint job though. LOL


    My new retreat. A long way off from some of those pirate shops but serves me well. Next up, CNC and a Iron Worker. Ya right.

    I wish I had ANY garage. I've never been lucky enough to have more than barely a single car garage... and I mean CAR.

    The next house will be at least a 1, if not a double, if not detached. Given the amount of noise I make, the missus would like detached just as much as I would

    The house I just bought has a 25 x 30 double door garage attached to the basement.

    Can't wait to move in!

    Here is my shop....

    Good ole front lawn... although I totally did a facelift to the front lawn since I am still stuck to the driveway. Hopefully that will change this spring/summer since I have a 25x28ft Futuresteel building sitting in the basement awaiting a foundation.

    do yourself a favour, insulate it and any other building repair work prior to starting a project!!! my jeep has been sitting in the middle of the shop for months acting as a shelf as i insulate and re-wire the shop!!

    ^ hahaha already in the plans as the first thing I do when I move in.

    I'm fortunate enough that my old man still puts up with my projects taking over his shop about 15 minutes from my place. I'll likely keep workin' on things out there and turn mine into a sweet man cave.

    I'd ask you to step away from the welder, but it might do the world some good if you clamp the ground electrode to your big toe, put the MIG handle to your temple and pull the trigger.

    When we decided to move again, I had my eyes on trying to score a detached man-cave. I was lucky

    The kitchen cabinets are awesome. I was able to get these free from our daycare provider... Fawk, i even was able to retain the lazy Suzan!!!
    Just before the TJ project started, i decided to add a lean-to on the back to store ALL the stuff that normally would go in my cave during the winter... That worked out great as i was then able to dedicate the space solely for the jeep. Darn thing is, i keep blowing all my money on the TJ and now over a year later, i still do not have walls up on the lean-to !!! Wife's a little pissed about that slight miscalculation..
    Unfortunately, the inside looks NOWHERE near like it does in these pics anymore since the ODTJ project began .......

    countryboy, my shop looks like your lean-to! Tarp walls on a carport makes for some chilly winter fab work but it does make me work faster to keep warm.


    How would you guys built cheap walls on a carport?

    haha - yea, i hear ya. My jeep is taking up all the space in mine. Don't have to mention a 14ft trailer frame takes away from any idea of space...

    Transport tarps work well for carport enclosures but you need a helluva heater. If you can do a double tarp with an air gap you'll save a lot of heat. Dad did that on his winter shed for his '71 Buick... used the stock outer skin and then put 2x4's inside, with another blue poly tarp stapled to those. He could get it comfortable with a BBQ tank heater.

    Me too, I can barely get my bike projects in there, but my dad is comming to tearms with his hoarding problem.LOL I should have a full heated and insulated shop by the end of this comming summer. It's a good start though 50' X 75' in down town Brampton you won't see very often.
    I'm done with old mistakes, I think I'll make some new ones!!
    Who wants to take me rock crawling?
