New house, bigger Garage!


Recommended Posts

Go to a ReStore shop and buy used all-wood cupboards to get you going.  (Sort of like a goodwill but with building materials).


You can get great shelves at home depot. Edsal make units and parts to customize nicely. They also sell under Husky and other brands.

It took me 30 years, but I was fortunate enough to purchase a home with triple front garages and a rear 24x24 shop.
Having a separate shop is key to a long term restoration, as nothing in that shop escapes the dust and mess accompanying the restoration process.
I would never want to work on a car like this in a shared parking space! I know, it is the case for many without options, but I waited an additional year after buying my project car to find a house that would accommodate a happy wife as well as a happy car nut....
Also, hang thick poly from the ceiling to create a separate work space to contain some of the mess. I used 6 mil vapour barrier. Good luck!

Congrats on the new digs.  My long-time dream is a 3-car garage with a small cottage attached.  Then my wife slaps me awake and says "You're having that dream again.  It ain't gonna happen, deal with it!" :finger:

Yes a large garage/shop.  House only needs to be be big enough for my bed and a kitchen / bath.  I would be living primarily in the shop anyway.
