I hear ya! I built my old CJ5, my buggy and my buddy's buggy in my driveway because my tools filled up my single car garage. It sucked.. had to account for the 4 degree driveway slope whenever using the angle-finder to check driveline and driveshaft angles.. I even tossed a tarp over my shoulders so I could weld while it was drizzling.
Needless to say.. my neighbors hated me

no matter how big a garage you have, you always grow into it and need more space. i went from a stuffed apartment back in october of last year and into a house with a good sized shop behind it. i'm starting to jones for new room already
3 car, fully insulated(walls,ceiling,doors), NG heated, 1 bay is all tools, 1 bay for keeping the LJ daily, and 1 bay for the projects.
Very nice. We have a 3 car garage but with 2 large doors. Unfortunately its filled with 2 tractors, one in pieces and one that works. Plus the usual 4 push mowers (1 works), riding mower, mower trailer, garden cart, paint booth filled with tractor parts, the list goes on and on. UGG. It even has a pit for working under the vehicles, which hasn't been opened in 3 years....
So right now my jeep is sitting out in the rain with the diff open waiting for me to get home and finish my Aussie install... probably in the rain
Fortunately I have enough room behind the tractor to keep my tool cart in out of the rain.
Me too. My neighbors on my short cul-de-sac street had never heard an air compressor, air tools, or the been exposed to flashes of a welder until I moved in. I at least keep my work inside the garage but if I'm using the air tools much, I try to keep the garage doors closed which only works in cool weather. My dream is an acre, 4-car garage, RV parking on the side, with no neighbors within a quarter mile of me.
We could fit a whole herd of Jeeps in there. through the little doorway way in the back is another 10 ft deep storage room that runs the width of the garage.
My own garage is so small and narrow that last summer I had to park my Jeep in the driveway because I didn't have enough side-room to extract my axleshafts. It looked very ghetto. Much like BESRK's driveway.

I hear that! I am lucky enough to have an additional ~1.5 car garage (shop) on the side of my house in addition to the 2 car in the driveway. The 2 car is for my climbing wall, and my mustang and jeep when i'm not climbing. My shop garage became overrun with tools so i could barley work in there. I am in the process of finishing up my 9x9x9' shed attached to the 1.5 car garage. This will house my giant 3hp 220V vacuum, air compressor (get that loud bastard out of my shop to keep my sanity when using air tools!), ping pong table, and random storage to free up the garage for more tools!
