Interesting idea. It didn't say how much they wanted for one of these things. Anyone ever get serious enough to price one out?

Love the castles I've looked through so far.

Here is a link to mine. Built it from the ground up.

http://www.garagejournal.com/forum/s...=1#post1292936

Some shots of the castle.
It was constructed because I got tired of laying under the Unimog in -20f weather, working on some random malfunctioning thing. Figured if I had a nice place to work on it, it would have less breakdowns during the critical winter plowing months.
Didn’t hurt to have it around for the bikes either!


Earth and wood


Rock n Rebar n Wood, oh my...


Ta-daaa! garage in a box...ish


Properly laid....Concrete


Reaching for the sky


Now we’re getting somewhere




Partially clad


Back Nine


Front Nine, Doors and Roof




Toys and Tools Starting to Happen


Zeus’ Contribution


Elebn Fitty


Kilo Niners Sacked from Helping Dad build


A Thumb, a scowl (taking too long with camera) and two new additions to the stable


Another cool thumb shot


Back on topic, early bench shot


Lastly, the reason for the Taj Ma Garage in the first place



Find more at my garage forum link above. I'll try to add some more here and there.
Cheers,
Mike

Haven't updated mine in a while..lots of changes. I have rearranged the new section several times already..to no avail. Come spring I have to do another expansion.
I did get a new piece for the shop the other day though. Sucks that I didn't think to snap some pictures before I got it crammed in the electrical room. So cramped the picture makes it look small..it aint! 10hp, 80 gal tank, and a V4 pump to boot....I like V4 power

I added a vette to the collection last year, so I spend a fair amount of time on some vette forums. One of the guys posted this picture of his setup the other day. Now this is organized!

What's weirder is a vette on a bike lift, being balanced with a stool.

Holy frakin' crap. That guys "garage" is cleaner and better adorned than my kitchen.

And seriously...a bike lift? What is he jacking against? I bet he's getting a shit-ton of flak for that over on the Vette forums too

And Gas Hog, that air compressor is awesome. I'm jealous. What kind of CFM does it put out? 15 or so?

Those are called a Mid-rise Scissor Lift. I don't like them myself as they are not the most solid. But they are portable and you can drive a vette over the top of them (not easy) so they are popular.

As for that guys setup..I have never had anything that nice..in or out of the house

Thanks,
I screwed up the description, its a 7.5hp V4(its replacing a 10hp) And it puts out 28 SCFM @100psi (that's where I run them) and 26@ 175psi

It definitely looks like a bike lift. In any event I wouldn't crawl under it and work on anything. It is not at all wide enough to be stable.

I wonder if he actually has any tools in that "garage" or just a wet bar and computer.

Way too clean and orderly, how can anyone work in a place like that?

Garage related Question/insulation

Some really neat garages out there !!
I have a garage insulation quesiton that maybe someone has some experience with
I built a 22 x 34 garage in Golden, Co
It has 10 ft walls, and i had the truss's built to be extra tall , which provided a usable triangle space in the middle for storage.

Anyways i'm heating the garage with a pellet stove and I'm in the process of insulating it. I'm stuck with how to insulate the roof space. I know the standard way is to drywall the ceiling and put the insualtion above that , but i dont want to do that as i want full access to that area for storage. I'm thinking of putting insulation under the roof decking , but what i've read about that is moisture issues and super heating your shingles(reduces there life) due to no air circulation between the insulation and decking as i'm dealing with 2 x 4 x 23 space. I'm in a pretty low humidity area and do have 4 roof vents that i can close (when heating the garage) or open when not.

sorry for long rant ..any ideas/thoughts ?

thks
Dan
