Yeah, exactly - it's just like an extension of the interior (in fact it's probably NICER than the interior of my house). I'd be proud too.

Not that there's anything wrong with that!

My car both sucks and blows.

I have an eight car driveway...........(crickets)
I do have some blueprints drawn up for my 2-1/2 car garage with lift. All concrete walls(wood roof structure) built into a hillside with below grade stairway access at the rear. Basically lots of retaining walls covered with a roof.

We recently bought a three car garage (had some sort of house attached, I think )...it actually started out life as a two car garage, then a one car garage was added on to the side of the two-car, with a 4-5' wide hole in the wall between them to walk from one to the other. This gives me a two car 'family garage' which I'm currently working on finishing - the drywall needs to be taped and textured, then painted. Also installing cabinets along the rear wall with an 8' workbench, and storage shelves above all that. So, the two car Family Garage will have all the tools, work area, bicycles, etc. Once this is done, I'll finish the Lotus Garage, starting with french doors on the wall between the two garages, then finish it out in a style TBD. It'll be sparse, with the two-car garage serving storage duty, so the Lotus Garage will be more museum like, or probably more like a living room complete with a TV, armchair, etc. Since it's like a whole separate room, I can really go more extreme with it without breaking the bank. It's a garage floorplan I never considered, but am really, really liking and highly recommend it to everyone.

i still say " tidy garage OR desk is a sign of a troubled mind"
mine's a mess. usually it's worse...........
but it has nearly all the necessities, milling machine, lathe, motorcycle lift, car lift, welding and cutting tools, blasting cabinet, but most of all....dirt.
lots of chips, too.
i just hate to discard old projects, successful or not.

my hat's off to the beautiful garages shown. i don't have the discipline to do as well.

Start digging and end up with a huge garage in the basement! I've seen it done before. You just have to install a sump pump and a generator.FLOOD

Well my garage isn't that pretty, but it does have a bomb shelter in the back - complete with 1960's brochures left behind by the original owner with information on how to survive the bomb, meal suggestions to make with canned food while you're hanging out in the shelter, etc.
It's underground so it makes a good wine cellar.

Mine is not nearly as nice as some others here - but it is a decent garage. 4 car capacity end to end. I store 3 cars and have a work area. There is also a bicycle shop.

Nice garage. Looks like you've got room for a lift if you move the light that's above the Elise.

Long summer days, and beautiful country

I was going to build a new garage as my current one is a woodworking shop. The property line on that side of the proprety runs at a diagonal to my property so the were allot of issues with building codes.
I ended up buying a garage on wheels, and just hitch up to it, and take the entire garage to the race track. It also saved me about $25K in the process.
Enough to buy and race the new Swift DB-1 Formula Ford thats on the way next week.

What mine lacks in artistry, organization and sanitation it more than makes up in size.

The first pic is my house garage.
The second pic is my barn garage full of tractors an manly things.
The third pic is my old barn on the property, soon to be reskined, reasphalted and turned into my workshop.

Why wouldn't you put the tractors in the old barn and make the barn garage your workshop?
