Just wanted to see others garages or shops. Here's mine I got the keys to the house in May of 2019. The garage was not utilizes as a garage by the original homeowner. There was one plug on the wall and one single light bulb in the ceiling. Since I got the house: Installed led lights Epoxy floor Ran natural gas line with heater Ran 100amp service to the garage Insulated the walls Osb all the walls Built storage for my 4 wheeler Built a storage rack Overall I'd say it came a long way in 8 months but I still have more to do to get it where I'm happy. I look forward to seeing others setups. Maybe I can get some ideas to finish mine off. [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image] [Linked Image]

Love that epoxy floor, what did you use to clean up the oil stains.

There really wasn't much for oil stains. What you see in the first pic was degreaser I had put down to get rid of a couple small spots. So I used degreaser in spots. Then sprayed the entire floor with degreaser and scrubbed with a stiff brush. After that I acid etched the concrete. There was probably 4 days (3-6 hours per day) worth of prep work just to get the floor ready. Over all the floor turned out great. I definitely would do it a little different next time. But I'm satisfied with the results. Biggest mistake was not installing my led lights until after the floor was done. Really could of used some better light

I have some good advise from Demarpaint, and i remodeled my garage. I'm not quite finished yet. I still have not moved my press or 60 gallon compressor back in. But here is the before and after. Cleaned and stained the concrete floor. Put up plywood breadboard on the walls and stained and put polyurethane on it. Took down my wire shelving and used large cabinets with SS doors to keep everything from getting dust covered and kept organized. Used Trex material as baseboard with caulk behind it and in front of it. So i can hose it out without water entering the house. My garage is on the same floor level as my kitchen. Used metal pegboard on the wall, i like the color as it matches my tool chest and its visible to find things, i may put up more. I have an upper shelf for seasonal camping gear, like chairs , cooler and dog ramps etc. I may put up ceiling molding, i still need to stain the molding around the windows, and paint the doors. Overall i like it much better. It's only a 20x 20 garage, so a lot of my home tools are in a larger shed thats 12x 24 things like table saw, miter-saw sawhorses etc, go out there. Before. And old tool chest.

This is my cook shed, cooking cave maybe ? We have a large patio … but the ceiling is white so decided against a nice outdoor kitchen and went 100% crude ! Not seen in picture is a stainless sink big enough to soak coated grills (H&C water) … and to the left of the ivy/skulls is a stainless 5 burner/oven/broiler gas unit that replaced the gas grill. The fire pit has a metal roof so we can even burn logs in the rain and watch droplets hit the pool (easily entertained after my 3rd glass in the swings)

You gotta watch those girls who want to keep their stuff, especially the ones with hyphenated last names. They keep the door "open" . Especially the ones that end in a hyphen ... like Suzy Miller-Smith-Jones- popcorn Like waiting for the next shoe to drop
