Thanks Dave,
It only took me 52 years to get the garage that I've always wanted. This is my first garage. Could use an extra 5 feet each way though. Not pictured is a drillpress, belt sander and band saw.

Overhanging at least 1 1/2" like the sheathing will be........You put a board alond the wall the same hieght (level) with the bottom of the fascia. Thats what you nail the soffit material to. If you use vinyl (probably your best bet for price and easy to cut) You put a "J" molding against it. http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1360/...79df25da8d.jpg
Rick, you are the man! I appreciate the pictures and information. It's starting to make more and more sense. Hopefully I'll be getting started on it tonight and get some progress in. Also, scored a hammer stapler. That is a fun tool. So much the 9 yr old was out there stapling the heck out of some 2x4 scrap. Maybe I can get him to tar paper the roof.... Ok, maybe not. lol

Go to it! Sometimes a pic is worth 1000 words. Let me know if you have any questions.

I'm just hoping for *a* garage sometime in the next 9 years, before I leave my 20's. In that case I'll consider myself lucky.

I think I may be able to dig up some pics of my first garage. I paid $62,500 for a former rental in the early nineties. I was in my 20's and was just ecstatic. It had an unregistered alien in it for a time, some odd interior walls and the roof sagged about 7" in the center. Typical 1940's stucco detached, alley access, sliding door thing. It was a good, open space after 5 years of flogging on that house. A former student owns it now (thirteen years after I sold it) and he tells me my Greg LeMond poster is still hanging in there.

Motorcycle Dream Garages / Thanks!

About a year ago, I posted a link to my photo gallery of images taken of cool motorcycle garages to Garage Journal and ADVRider. The traffic that resulted was crazy, with more than 250,000 visitors last fall. I built a website for the book, and that was hit hard as well. When the publisher found out about the traffic, they got behind it, as well.

The book just came out a few weeks ago, and it has been selling like mad on
Amazon. I just wanted to post a link here and say thanks to all the folks who checked this out and helped make the book a success.

Isn't that the truth.... I've never had a work space large enough.

Hey Lee Great job on the book, I bought one after reading about it over on bike Exif http://www.bikeexif.com/ I believe. Very solid and the display of rides is amazing. Great work and source of inspiration!

I got on the pre-order list through MBI. I love that type of book.

The work bench is homemade from steel. Got it from a friend that closed his fabrication shop. The powder coat blue is really nice. I added a neoprene mat for a work surface.
The peg board is made of white plastic. I think I got it a Lows Hardware store. I made an aluminum frame for it that has a little tilt to it. It is attached to the bench.
