Looks nice, I bet youve done a lot of work out there, Also I see the dog bone creeper in the back ground, I used to work at the place that made those. There was less than 20$ total cost to manufactor them and they sell for 90$ plus.A few pics of my back shop, been out of it for 10 months, just getting it cleaned and organized again, AC, Painted floor ( no problems as all ) plenty of lights, cabinets, worktops, parts bins are a must !
Welding equipment, metal working stuff, mill etc.

Ok so I just got with a builder and am going to start having my house built. Just wanted to get some ideas about garage ideas that you guys have done or would like to do in your garage. Heres what i have so far 2 car garage one stall is two deep(due to lots being narrow). Insulated walls and door, mop sink, plenty of outlets and on the ceiling, 220v outlet, and will be coating the floor (any ideas with what?brand?)
I haven't seen anything in this thread about a pit. I like the idea of having one. It can be dangerous to have,but to a responsible owner,it can be a great thing to have.
I'm hunting for a house to buy. My last "prospect" was a tranny shop with apartments attached. It had lifts and a pit. It sold the same day I found it.
I have a "man cave"' it's 26x40 detached with forced hot air heat, a/c, cable plasma tv & internet, kick ass stereo system, 100 amp panel, insulated & sheet rocked, (2) lifts, plenty of electric, compressor, etc......Here's my REGRETS: Insulate it with spray foam...it costs more upfront but man does it make a difference versus batt insulation. My neighbor has a similar garage and his is sealed way better for heat/air purposes then mine. Ceiling height, my township wouldn't allow me more then 1o' finished...I can still stuff a GN on the top and slide one underneath but it's tight...go 12'-14' if possible! Lighting, load it up w/ flourescents and put them on (2) circuts so when your just hanging out you have ample light and when it's project time...you can really light up the garage. If I ever redid it, I would do radiant floor heat but I don't necesarilly regret that just would've been nice.
