At one time!
my new motor shed.
Very nice shed!
Really like the lift recessed in to the floor. I've wanted to do that with mine but just never seem to find the time.
Living the dream brother you have all the right motorcycles!!
I was searching garage ideas. (waiting for a delivery, could not leave) From your pics in other places it looks as if you spend much time outside and on the go. I think my wife and i do the same. The reality of your garage refreshed my sanity.
I almost sold a couple of my bikes, since I had run out of room for adding a couple more that I'm looking for. I don't have a garage at my house, so I had a 24'x20' unfinished quoted to build on my land, and the cost I got was $40k unfinished..... My land is not very build friendly..... The landscape is pitching down, lots of oak trees, and all utilities are running where the garage would have needed to be build at. So, make a long story short, I added a 24'x11' and a 16'x12' storage building. The buildings do what I need them to do, which was to keep my toys out of the weather, and I needed a place where I could work on my bikes. But it didn't take very long that things got old fast when needing to move the car in and out of the barn in order for getting a particular bike out of the barn.
My 16'x12' barn was the right size for my tools, work bench, my bike lift, and for storing a couple of my other bikes. But here again, it didn't take but a couple of hours working on one of my bikes during a hot southern night to make me hate life while working in this barn. The issues were lots of mosquitoes, horse flies, wasps, other night flying insects, and working in a barn which has no windows, so there is no air moving to give some relief with the heat and humidity....... I stopped using this barn all together after a couple of other nights of me trying to do some work here.
So today, while being off from work, I spend some time walking and looking around between my two barns, and I started to wonder if I could possibly get all of my bikes into the larger 24'x11' building. My thought here were that I have four windows with mosquito screens, and for now adding a window fan would get air circulating inside the building, and no more bugs to worry about. I'm planning on insulating this barn and adding sheetrock to the walls and ceiling later this fall. I will also add a small heating and AC wall unit, so that I can then work here all year around. I was actually surprised that all but one of my bikes fit into this building, and I still have the same work space as I had in the smaller building.
Another thing I ended up being lucky on was the length of my car! The inside of the smaller barn is about five inches longer than my car is! Plus there is enough room on the left side of the barn to add two more bikes, which is absolutely perfect, since I'm still looking on buying me two more. So I don't have a great setup, but my barns make it possible for me to have my toys out of the weather, and I can now start to enjoy working and detailing them inside of a bug free environment too! :)
It's fairly clean so this is it,I have heat and at least some space to move around.It's not great but better than my shed.
we have posted 2 pictures several times, guess I'm not real good at this yet.
I fixed it, now just 1 of each.
The RZV that is in first pic, is now the bare frame in second pic.....some work goes on in here, but at a seriously slow pace....
Damn! thats some collection
Love these bike collections.
What's the interval on sitting bikes ? Curious for my own bikes what people think is not too long between rides.
Sadly, sometimes it's years....or longer if one is in pieces....
Yup, it will be cold and lonely in here over the next 6 months.
Torn down carport... hope to have this 20x24 done by the new year.

Getting there, slow but sure. Some more lighting, floor finishing, and detail work.
