That looks like an old Honda Hawk, like a 79 or so.

Just made a bench and some shelves yesterday to dedicate 1/2 the garage as a shop. Nighttime iPhone pic.

Well, good news. I'll hopefully be upgrading my man cave. As a result, I'm being forced to upgrade the rest of the house via wifes orders...

I'm upgrading this....


To this....


We close on the house May 31st. The contractor wanted 30days to do the bonus room upgrade which will add 3-400 sq ft to the layout of the house. Here is the rest of it.

COngrats! We closed and moved to our new house yesterday. It also has some serious man castle potential.

Thanks for all the good comments. The house is about 1900 sq feet on the inside. Compared to what i'm used too, that is huge. Either way, i'm looking forward to filling the cave up with tools! :)

If you flattened your front yard and got rid of the tree, you could play football and not have to worry about painting lines.

I see a couple wood bike tables. Not a bad idea. How is riding the bike up the ramp? Just plywood or did you put anything else down for traction?

Might work good in the barn for the ATV and sled too.

I gotta love being paid to use someone elses equipment..

That space is fully equipped, nothing else need for happy life; all the machines, presses and tool boxes in this thread are over rated. This place perfect. Ladies and gents we have a winner.

That was a pretty nice shed.

Could you move it into the back yard for the dirty stuff?

I have been inspired to section a shop off the garage after browsing this thread and developing feelings of inadequacy.

24x8, 50 amp service, 24 outlets, heating and AC.

I should be ready to paint and build some shelves before the spring projects start stacking up.
