first few of the garage..26 feet x 26 feet and heated ..yum

Image


the doors are two different sizes..the door on the left is big car size and the door on the right is truck size which is handy as that's where the truck goes

Image

Image

the third picture..the door on the right is back out to the garden and the door to the left is to the workshop

This one is the workshop but doors make it look smaller but it's 16 feet x 16 feet and heated yum again..to the right is a door to the extra storage space leading to stairs that go to the spare apartment above the garage..the door to the left is a electric mini garage door that we use for other things and toys

With almost all the bike stuff gone it's the cleanest it's ever been and it feels somewhat empty

Image

Image

Most of the standard bikes have gone now as with most of the spare kit making way for the moonlander at chrimbo

The only trouble is the mrs is a hoarder and every time she sees space she thinks it's a green light for her crappy shit

Wow! That's beautiful, sylus! 8) 8) 8)

...and CLEAN, too. I don't see a single speck of dirt or dust. :shock:

Are you thinking of painting the walls white, or leaving them as they are? Have you thought about putting down some garage floor epoxy so that even oil spills can be completely cleaned up? You can mix sand in the epoxy if you're worried about slipping on a wet epoxy floor.

If it were my mancave, I'd nix the spare apartment upstairs so I could have a 2-story mancave!

Cheers chaps

The reason why it's so clean at the momment is because all the retro stuff is gone and the floor is being prepped just for what you suggested..a epoxy floor coating

As to the walls..well folks in the midwest are very set in their ways...steak, beer and biege so for resale painting the wood walls wouldn't probably be a good thing

I did try and suggest we install a small mini lift direct from the garage into the appt to store some motorcycles and bikes in the apt but that didn't go down well :(

we need to see some more mancaves people
