Default Garage Inspiration

Hey all, well i am thinking of building a work bench/table and putting up some shelving in the garage.

Just looking around for some inspiration and ideas to maximize the space while still alllowing vehicles to fit comfortably.

Lets see what you've got or what you would like to do!

This is my inspiration

Yes, it is very nice but not mine lol. Those above options would be pretty expensive. I'm looking to building a nice workbench out of wood for the time being...something to take pride in that I built

Very nice, I printed off the pics the first one is exactly like I'd like to do but most likely it'll be something like the 2nd photo, but using the cabinet style from the first one. Well that's hoping I have room that is. I'll for sure get some of it done.

Thanks for the pics gives me some great ideas.

I'm pretty sure those samples from from places like las vegas or florida or someone with a 10' x 10' shed in the yard. Where's the snowblower, mower, six shovels, three bags of ice melter, recycling bins, golf clubs, bikes, etc?

Apparently, garage is the new place for the man of the house with bar and HDTV, lazy boy, and a killer sound system to boot.

In my dreams.

This is the only part that I will be able to do from this picture. You can get these at Home Depot. If I remember correctly it was 19.99 for vertical bar and then each different gadget was priced differently. They had hooks for bikes, shovels, baskets, etc.

I bet those garages are a little bigger than what our builders give us.

Park a Van or SUV in our garage and you have zero room left at the back.

Heck, if I can afford an oversized double garage with all those storage cabinets and that tile floor (have you priced this stuff from Sears? Yikes!), then I can afford to hire snowplowing service and a gardener.
