    I'm sure I'm not the only one who has printed these out and stuck them on the "dream garage" bulletin board. SWEET !! :clap

    What floats do you have on your C185. Brown water lake eh? The clear water lake I live on doesn't leave that brown line on the floats of my C180. It won't fit in my garage though. Do you pick it out the water by the lifting rings or do you have a float dolly? Cool set up. :thumb

    Far from PERFECT (missing about 800 sq/ft several shop tools and several motorized toys!) but it is the best I've had in my 5 decades! :clap

    I have so many toys, it is over the top at times and I even get embarrassed at all the things I think I have to have. I use a two car at home and a 16 x 12 bike shop. In the mountains I have a 30 x 36/38? and a 16 x 16 ATV shop. When I see other garages filled with bikes, atv's, their racebike collections, etc... I realize that I am a .25 cent player. Now that someone has posted the Floatplane, I realize that my addiction is treatable.

    PS I think all of us started with a lean to or metal utility building, went on to a single car garage, moved up with the Jefferson's to a two car and then we went with a detached building so the wife could find hope that one day she would finally be able to park inside (never happened).

    PPS I love to see everybody's garage space, someone posted using an open parking garage space in a city with a small utility room. It was great to see the dream alive!!!

    That is badass. What do you build? Aside from anything you want hammered?

    Is the building and everything in it new? It all looks so clean and unused. Not an oil spot on the floor or a spec of dust on the tools. Nice, but wierd. :huh

    There are some mighty impressive garages, and deep wallets here!

    My wood shop/tool shed/bike garage & man cave isn't so impressive, but it's got room, light and heat so I'm satisfied.

    When I bought my house it was the deciding factor.. 24x36. It wasn't heated or drywalled but now it is..

    Fits 4 short vehicles, really tight, 3 pretty easy. Usually the wife's FJ cruiser is on the left... Oh and she gave me the Bronco fo my 30th... I have put a bit more money into it though..:evil

    Sorry for the crappy cell pics

    Why is the drywall in so many garages left unpainted? It would be easy to roller some exterior white paint on the walls and ceiling before putting up shelves and benches. The lighting would be much improved and it wouldn't look unfinished. Maybe its just me :dunno

    I agree with what you said about the lighting - it really does brighten the place up.
