Nice setup there Frank, and very stylish too. Great to have the lift as well. ::thumb::

 

Greg. :)

 

Thanks Greg!

 

It's built in the style of a timbered house. The skeleton has just wooden bolts, no nails or screws.

The skeleton is done by a professional carpenter. Paneling, roofing, insulation, and wiring was my task.

Yes the two post lift is a great help.

Pretty darn good setup there Tony.

 

You're well organized and have the where with all to get some good work done on the Mustang as well. Great to have the scissor lift at your disposal too. ::thumb::

Hey Mike,

 

Good, clean cave there Sir!

 

I would think that it would be no big deal for you to move a car out when you needed to work on the other one in the shed, when it suited you.

 

Thanks for sharing,

 

Greg. :)

Awesome caves! Man....I need to win the lotto, so I can get my garage built. At the moment, my car is stashed at a friends converted barn....together with some other nice 'stablemates'.

 

Here is a picture of what the garage will look like and where you have to IMAGINE it placed! Please....I am not a traitor to the forum.......just a project TA standing in for the 429cj/mach1!

Not sure if this one counts but all I can afford, besides the shed at the back is full of tools, parts etc so no room for a couch let alone the Mustang!

Cost me $180 at Supercrap Autos so if a storm blows it apart I won't cry and yes it is bolted to the concrete

OK. Here it is. It is a complete mess as I am trying to get the car back together and sell my house so I apologize for the state of the garage, but it is home (for now). Realtor took the photo, turned out pretty cool too.

Thanks. When I built it I put up the largest and tallest garage the city would allow which wasn't much on the height side (9' foot walls and then had to go 4/12 pitch on the roof to keep it down). We are selling the house as we purchased a small property outside of the city limits on 2 acres, so I will be putting up my new shop this late summer/fall. Will be 40x40 with 12' side walls, in floor heat, a bathroom with a shower (mandated by my wife) and a lift.

brb calling a contractor to have one of the barns you guys have installed  :whistling:

Just a 1-1/2 car garage but it's the biggest space I've had to work on the car and it's my first house. I would like to build a garage big enough for a lift and space to work one day but that won't happen for at least a few years. I have a decent amount of yard for where I live so it's just a matter of paying for it (and taxes  :@ )

Yes taxes are an issue, hence why I am moving out of the city so I will only have to pay county taxes. Also I built the garage with the help of my brother in-law in three days time for under $7,000 plus the concrete work which is beyond my scope.

I won't mention Arkansas taxes.  No need to upset some of you.

 

I'm paying $8k+ which is considered pretty low. I know people paying 25k+ :shootself:

I do not have recent photos. Since photos I have put in some of my vintage audio and video equipment. Pioneer Laser disc for audio and video, 5 disc changer and lots of the big old speakers to make the garage shake.

I saw that one of the member is also an Africa hunter. I have been 14 trips and work as a professional hunter when I go. Will move my mounts to garage soon.

Soo much to do and so little time.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P

Hi Downward,

 

Thanks for sharing! Understand your predicament Sir, but full marks for getting off to a great start with a tight but working cave. ::thumb::

From little things, great things grow - the sky's the limit!   Don't give up on your dreams  - they will become your reality one day.

 

Greg. :)

David,

 

Hi, and what a knock out!!  Hope you are OK.

I've been following your shed/man cave project from the beginning,and the wow factor kicks in big time with your dreams and schemes, and what you have come to achieve.

 

In your case, the cave is your life's work and realization in many ways from everything you've told us. Congratulations David on all the hard work, planning and effort you've put into the project. I hope you end up getting an immense amount of pleasure, happiness and satisfaction out of the whole thing. ::thumb:: ::thumb:: 

 

Let us know on how your improvements and upgrades turn out as you go along.

 

Greg. :)

We were house shopping for the last few months and finally moved into a new place with a 30 x 40 detached garage!  I have to do some work on it yet...needs soffit and fascia redone plus the previous owner built a stud and paneling wall between the 2 garage doors seperating the bays.  I want to remove the wall and open it up into a big space!  I'll post some pics soon!  Maybe before and after shots!   :D

They're all mine but they're not all the guitars I own. Some are upstairs in the living room or in the band's rehearsal room.

 

Very cool Mike!

 

A musical mane cave indeed - and what a cave!! ::thumb::

 

I hope this means that the Mustang doesn't get kept outside in the weather. :P :P

 

Cars and guitars kinda reminds me of an ól Gene Vincent song -
