I am lucky I have a 3 car extended length garage. I can get the jeep , xterra, & rhino, and still have room to work. I also have a ton of work bench and a island work bench even though the are mostly just catch all's. It takes me longer to clean them off to work on than the work it's self.

I wish my garage was heated and insulated....all I have is a small Kerosene heater to heat 1080 sq-ft (I got a 30X36 garage....its also 15 feet high to the rafters)

Hey bgbdwlfaz I have sorta the same thing you do, but my dad used the extra space to make a FULL woodworking shop...

I'll take pics of my shop............well i wish it was my shop (its for me/family to use but parents are building it on the 160 acres they recently bought) Its a 61' x 40' with a covered overhang on the back. It has two 12' doors and one 14' door. The end of the building that does not have a door has a second floor loft that is 40' x 16' It has hookups for a bathroom and shower, electric stove, water fountain, washer and dryer etc. It has also has the spray in insulation on walls and ceiling. I cant wait to overuse "their" shop (lol) They even said if I pay 1/2 of the cost they will get a car lift. Anyways .....................it should be done this week (except for the electricity)

I am, just lot of other stuff to help them do first PLUS move tons of stuff out there. I found a place in texas about 150 miles away where you can pick them up in person so you dont have to pay for shipping. I want a 2 post lift and they have a 8000lb set up for about 1600 dollars (cheaper than I thought they would be)

Shipping is a killer on lifts. I found a local one and picked it up for $1500 out the door. For shipping they wanted about $500 and i had to rent a fork lift and wait around all day because the customer has to unload the 2200lb lift when the truck shows up. I got the 4 post because the 2 post was too wide for my side yard. The 4 post is nice because you can load and unload easier, and deal with a weighted suspension. The 2 post is nice because you can change tires / suspension parts, but cannot get under the vehicle with a loaded suspension. You can put the vehicle on jack stands on top of the 4 post if you need to mess with the suspension. For tire changes i just do it the old way.

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!


Hmmmmmmmm. I notice you live in San Diego . . . . . . .

haha, yeah, get in line! I just ordered $4K worth of MM suspension parts for my mustang, so that lift is going to be occupied for a while. I'll keep the front spindles and the axle, but everything else in the suspension is getting replaced. Don't worry the jeep will get some suspension love after the mustang is "done".

I went from working in my dad's barn into what I thought was a HUGE shop at 3000 sq ft. After a few years of that I moved to 7500 sq ft and thought I would never need more space. LOL then moved to a 12,000 sq ft building and wondered if it would be big enough. After 2 long years in that place we bought a building that should be fine for a while. We just moved the shop to Birmingham, AL in a 33,000 sq ft building. At least for a while we will have more room.
