I put up a 12' X 18" shed.. with a 72" wide front doorwith a ramp.. O have it wired with lights .. ithas two windows wioth screens to.. I can drive my nike in and out easy as well as my zero turn lawn tractor.. I'll stick the bike and the tractor on a battery float this winter .. I had toget a liscense from my town to put up the shed as it was larger than the max of 12 X 10.. so I'll have to pay taxes on it. It has a nice floor and all in all it's great.. Looks great.. I can't put attachments ( a photo) on this site.. so here is a link to the Mfg. of the shed and the model I bought

Here is an update to my shed. I managed to convince the GF that the shed would be better if it was cemented and had power run to it. Surprisingly she agreed to pay for the cement and electrician

It wasn't long until it went from this


to this





Conveniently the 32" TV followed me home on Saturday so I could have somewhere to plug the Xbox into and play racing games :)

I celebrated with a cold lemon squash from the drinks fridge

Holy crap!! I thought I hung a lot of stuff from my rafters!?

I have several gas tanks hanging from mine, but noting on par with this collection...wow, just wow.

Ever lose anything up there?? "Now, just where did I hang that 1967 CB160 headlight bezel"?

Very cool storage idea.

Now I know why I have resisted hanging things from my ceiling. I instinctively knew I would never be able to stop!!!

Here's the main working area, and a couple of views. Oh! I'm an addicted Vintage Japanese Bike collector and retired. So this is my fun time
Wow... just wow! A dream come true!

House garage

this is a 3 car Garage with an enclosed 3 car carport and the original Garage door removed. the original part has a 48" Center hoist recessed in to the floor.
The seating area is in the right corner. And no there is NO TV in my Garage.

Now I have to see how to get the Pic in.
I guess that I am 2 "OLD" for doing this but 2 young 2 have the permission yet.

don't find the "Attachment" Buton
