Inexpensive cabinets (from Global, assembly required, those guys have crazy expensive shipping on anything full-sized):






Bomb-proof "heirloom quality" but not inexpensive cabinets from McMaster:






Been meaning to put one of these on the appropriate cabinet -- if there's a fire, I'd like for folks on the scene to know what to avoid:

I like the idea! I think I can get some lockers from an Army Surplus or Habitat for Humanity store.

Thanks, And good to here from you. time sure passes. It must be about 4 years now since Daytona at Jeff's place?

Vertical files make for good storage. I see companies giving them away for free on Craigslist as they go "paperless".

I've tried contacting them but no response back. Looks like the website hasn't been updated since 2004. I may just use this higher res pic I found and get it printed large. Not sure how big I can go with it before it starts looking crappy.

A little update. The garage is coming along slowly, as expected. However some progress has been made.


Outside back. The mess has been cleaned up, and the power line trench filled.


Front. Light installed and working. Prep has begun to finish the driveway. Concrete will be poured tomorrow.


Inside the sheetrock has been fitted. A view towards the rear.


A view towards the front.


The left over rock, plus the materials ready to mud it up.


The wife, frozen, but happy for me. More happy to have her house nearly done. We move in before the end of the month!

I have lots of plans for my little garage. It will take a while, with the move, but it should look nice.

How big is this garage ? Your wife looks tiny compared to the door height . Also , is there a reason you dont have overhangs (eaves) ?

The garage is 20x20x10, the door is 16x8 and the wife is 4'10".

Not really sure, other than cost, why the builder decided against eaves, they are on the house. No vents in the garage at all. That I need to fix!

Mostly because it was thrown in with the house as an incentive to buy. I plan on adding a 18X15 extension on the back as a workshop next year. The lot is a little narrow, but very deep!


Before the garage, and a little deceptive.

The lot is 50' wide and 230' deep, about 1/4 acre.

^^^ I have a No-Mar tire changer, too. Like him, I started stocking tires and was making money with it. My changer paid for itself in a couple weeks. However, I do feel he should re-think his tire storage solution.

I got some deals on Tourances and have two sets waiting to be used.. My friend said they will rot, another thread was concerned about tire age so I found out when the tires were made. Look below. Tire mileage warranties are now miles and years for cars (50,000/5years). RV tires usually age out before wearing out. Just FYI
