    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...:lol3

    I'm upgrading 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.

    Congratulations! That's a very nice looking little home. Some of the houses people are buying these days are giant freakish mansions that look like they were dumped in place by a UFO. That one is tasteful. :thumb

    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.:D

    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 count 3 tvs. Bikes and guns to play with after shots at the bar. :lol3

    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. :rofl

    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.

    I did about 60 miles on the KLR this morning between work and meeting up with the building contractor. After doing the doohickey I really like the ride. Also, after buying this house, I can't afford one of them purty starfangled machines them people call Beemers.
