    $129 at Home Depot.

    The instructions say "outdoor use only", but I suspect that is lawyerese!

    Yeah, they don't want some guy's wife to sue them after his stupid ass died when he was using that in his garage.

    I posted this in the WTF thread, but wonder if anyone in this thread has done this?

    although I've seen airplane hangers like this, the cars were unanticipated

    I need a bigger garage. And more organized. And to not be such a slob.:D

    It's a one car garage, and a small one at that. I have 2 big bikes, (FZ1 & CBR) in there, a new Husky dirt bike and I just bought another bike to modify (Ninja 650). Lots of tools, tons of parts.

    I have a 20" powermatic drill press, 13x40 lathe, Lincoln TIG welder, hydraulic tubing bender etc. I would have a lot more stuff if I had the space as it is I can barely wiggle my way around bikes to get at things.

    This winter with the new project I am taking two of the big bikes down to a friends house to store for the winter.

    Here's my plywood and steel bike lift

    My next house, soon, I'm building a huge shop with more space than I can possibly use.

    I can think of several families where the wife would tear up the instruction manual before giving that heater to hubby as a "gift."

    I put up one of those about 10 years ago. At the time they offered a 4 ft. extension making it 10X14. Used it for my shop behind the garage. The hollow walls allowed me to put electric outlets (surface mount) and run Romex through the walls. Not code but worked well. Also added two window kits. Really nice structure.

    Relax duder, I'm a mainah in exile. But a mainah born n bred:wink:

    And you don't need to ever worry about my guns unless you are a crack head coming into my house with the intent to do my family harm. Then you really should be taking stock of your life. Quickly.:evil

    But since you are a nice guzzi rider, I don't see that happening
