Priorities appropriately sorted I would say.

I had a guest room that shared a wall with the garage so... I knocked out the wall, put in some doors and made a shop. It is just in the beginning stages but is working well enough for now.

I would need to see a headlight or taillight to know for sure, but I am going to guess that is a 69 or 70 Cadillac. I have a 69 Coupe deVille.

Nice shop

You have a good eye, it is a '67 deVille Convertible. I like the 22s but the ride is definitely better with the stock set up.

Wow.. some great looking sheds here. I have been stuffing around fitting my Christmas present Steel Pony soft panniers to the bike. Thought I'd take a pic to send to a mate... then thought.. why not the shed.







It is amazing what you can fit in a 10x10 shed.

Cheers

Yes the generator is on wheels. I need to pull it out to refuel it. When we get a black-out it runs all house lighting, the A/C in one of the rooms and the fridge power circuit in the house. (And the bike shed too) The bar fridge is great to grab a cold beer from as soon as i get home from a hot ride. (We are in a sub tropical zone). The box on wheels holds all my power tools and is a seat when working on the bike. My grandfather brought it to Australia with him in 1890 when he emigrated from England.

Cheers

Moved in last April.
The perfect living space.
250 square feet of living space upstairs, 600 square feet of shop space downstairs.
How fun.
