Default Welcome to my little garage!

Ryan, I thought you were joking when you said you were going to have a board just for garages....I guess not.

Here's my little work space burried at the back of my carport.

That looks more like a museum display. FANTASTIC! The colors, the textures. Do you realize that people get paid thousands to get things to look this good and you probably didn't try to do it on purpose.

Too cool. How old are the structures and what is the history behind them?

The house was built in 1898, I don't know the age on the rest of 'em. The lady who lived here for the last 30 (kind of an eccentric recluse) liked to use old materials to build things. Part of the barn is very old, the left side was built within the last five years. The carport is old, shop is a bit newer. The deck I rebuilt but reused the old lumber which I found out was redwood from an old water tank, I thought it was strange the boards measured 1.5" x 7". And I've got my own pile of old lumber I've used to build what I've added.

You have to have the only garage with a hard wood floor. It is really cool.

Wow those structures are amazing! We need to redo the exterior of our detached garage and am strongly considering going with the barn siding. Nice inspiration pics! Is that just transparent plastic sheeting for the roof?

Without a doubt the most inviting looking space called a garage/shop I have seen on this board, and perhaps ever seen!

Jeff, that's the coolest garage I've seen.....and I've admired it on the HAMB too. What's even cooler is that you're building a T like me!
