Default 26' x 30' Garage, Photos, Threads and Videos

I realized I've never had a thread in the Garage Gallery.
I'm consolidating all threads and videos in one place.
If you've been on GJ for awhile you may have seen some of them already, however I think a one stop link will be convenient for new people on the site.

************************************************** ******************
26' x 30' detatched Garage, built Sept. 1984. 12' x 20' rear addition built 2002.
780 SF main building, 240 SF rear addition for a total of 1020 SF.
Other than electrical and ceiling drywall the garage remained unfinished on the inside until, late 2009 when I finally had time to start work on the interior, see the unfinished interior photo below.

Where's the driveway to the house come from? Is it coming from the left of the last two pics?

I like the addition on the garage. What do you keep in there, garden equipment? I need an addition about that size but don't know if I can swing it for awhile.

Kevin,

A couple better photos to see the driveway. (ariel one taken 22 years ago)

The addition is used to park the tractor in and I have lots of shelving and another tool box in there. It allows me to keep the main area clutter free (for the most part )

The addition was money well spent, my son and I built it. The only things we didn't do were the shingles and the concrete floor (I did the prep for the floor pour) and the OH door install. It cost me $5000.00 for everything including the sublet work. I think the garage looks much better with the addition.

Whats your floor to ceiling height, reason I ask is my build is going to be limited on ceiling height..

But your pics make it seem like you make the car lift work with a low ceiling

I just picked up this thread, really a nice place you have there. I've seen the inside of the shop before, but have not seen the outside, I'd say you have a very nice place to spend, maybe 40 years or so?

Great Place you have there!

Mm

Update. I installed a fenced area behind the garage to hide trash cans and other stuff, and I'm adding some recent photos with a better view of the garage front

Nice space, I'm diggin' it


On a side note, I have no idea why someone would post 3 star just because? It can be a real downer on all the efforts of the owner/OP.

Let's just balance that out for ya

Thanks,
I must say you've done some creative and meticulous work in your garage, I've seen your thread before and was/am impressed by the attention to detail.

You got me thinking, so I had to get a ZT Mower to cut down the mowing time.
