here is mine...I converted my attic to more storage, i pull down the ladder and i have shelving up there to help me stay organized and keep all the parts in need, i also have a 1 car barn in back with the lawn mower, 3 bikes, etc... THE VERY BEST THING YOU CAN DO IN YOUR GARAGE IS CARPET IT... NO JOKE, THE BEST! keeps it cooler in the summer, warmer in the winter, and an old vacume will get you all cleaned up! i love mine! It is all insulated, heated, has a full spray booth, polishing station, outlets every 6 ft along the wall and 3 on the ceiling.  it is ok, gets the job done

with any luck our new shop building will be completed next month and the wife can actually park in the garage and i do not have insure it as a shop anymore!!!

My garage is carpeted too.  I love it, except for once when I spilled a bunch of oil on it.  Used a whole bottle of degreaser and a roll of paper towels and it's still a mess.

Found an old pic of the garage. Since built a large workbench, added a smaller work table, welder and some other bits. Ill get a new pic next time im there. The big fella in the corner is my buddy Matt. Its his garage, and hes building a sweet xs500 that Im going to be doing a vintage Yamaha racer paint job on ala Kenny Roberts.

I just would've done it slower

Well the place that I currently reside does not have a garage. :( But it does have a small prefab building in the back yard that was used as a sewing/storage room by the previous owner. I have converted into what I feel is a pretty good work shop with all things considered. It is small, 15ft X 10ft with only one small window and one standard size door, but it does have heat and A/C! Even though it is small I organized well to try and cut down on clutter! Enough babbling, here it is!

From the outside you would never suspect the mayhem inside!

Soon my newest bike purchase will be in there and a standing drill press!

Twisted - that is actually a sweet little spot you have. It would be real easy to have 2 people work for a couple hours and pounding beers the whole time.

And JRK, about that carpeting..... whenever we moved into our house I somehow "inherited" my sister-in-laws 5' by 7' rug. The thing was hideous to me so I plopped it down in the garage by the couch and beer fridge.  Soon as my wife saw it all I heard was "Are you crazy? That's an Eddie Bauer rug! You'll ruin it in here!!". Didn't wanna tell her but that was the whole point.

That is a good shop.  I remember working out of a 8 x 12 and it wasn't bad.  Its easier to keep what you absolutely need and get rid of what you don't.  I like the way you have your stuff very well organized on the wall.  A place for everything and everything in its place.  It really is amazing how much more a guy can get done when he isn't looking for lost, misplaced, or buying/shopping for items that he already has on a shelf somewhere.

Agreed! I bow to you superiority! My place looks like a bakery in comparison to most of you guys work spaces! I will not let that effect my build though! I just got this place looking this way, as you can tell there is no oil and grime on the work bench. I have had several shops in the past (at my parents house then my own garage) and I know it won't take long to break it in.
