    This is the garage at my parent's house. It's 25'x30'. It's a not a bad garage but, it's unisulated and it's mainly used for storage so, I don't work on much stuff in it. The second picture is my tool box, it's a 4.5' wide 4.5' tall and 18" deep Husky. My parents gave it to me for Christmas last year. They got it the day after Thanksgiving at Home Depot for $500 and it normaly sells for around $1,500. It's not a bad box for a Husky, it has ball bearing drawers and the rubber mats on the bottom of every drawer. I have mostly Craftsman tools and a few Snap-On tools in it. I have pretty much every toool to get me by but, I still need more. I can't wait untill I build my own garage in a few years.

    Thanks, I realy like that box. Before I got it, I had a small five drawer Craftsman and it was overflowing with tools. Then I got the Husky box and I have empty drawers.

    The garage isn't to bad. I love having a big door so I can fit any thing I want in there. Like I said I realy wish it was insulated. The lighting is terible and it's hard to work on things in there. The floor is also cracked but, that's not that big of a deal. The floor also sweats alot in the Summer. It's pretty much just used for storage.

    For christmas me and my grampa got a shop light from TSC (not sure if they are in maine) and we love it. he has bad eye site in the dark and he says its really helping him see stuff in there. i think it was less than 25 bucks. its the light hanging infront of the window, right next to that weird thing i made for no reason. i wish i had one big door to. it would be really hard fitting a plow through my doors.

    My garage attached to my house isn't anything too special. 24'x30' with standard garage doors. Somewhat heated, never gets below 45 or 50 in there. My main workspace is my barn. 60x210' (I think), no heat, dirt floor, open eaves... its really fun to work in there. Can't complain, it's better than in the rain I guess.

    that big barn would be a good canidit for a wood funace pour a concrete floor and put a nice big door in front and close up those eves to keep the heat in your already half way there you have structure.

    If I was going to be living here longer I would, but the goal is to be moved out by next summer, so i'll grit it out for one more winter.

    Thanks! It was built in the late '50s and we rehabbed it. Thats an old pic. It's been painted and had a new roof put on since that pic.
