I used a small electric heater in my 1.5 car in the old :haus: - definitely helped take the chill off.
:word:

I should really take the time to research options. Garage is 24x24 with 10’ ceilings
I just open the door between the :haus: and the garage and use a fan to pull heat from inside to "heat" the garage.

Resurrecting an old :bread:

Garage in the new haus (20x23) is slightly smaller than my current (24x24) - but at least I don’t have to work around a service door and the floor is already sealed. Storage is a concern - I’ve got 2 yuge storage racks currently and a large workbench. In the new garage I’m probably going to have to downsize the workbench and will be limited to 1 storage rack. Any pro tips on space saving storage, what things are people using these days?

I'm also in4pics. It's likely that new :haus: will not have quite a garagemahal - likely similar size to what Trav is working with, and I'd like to get a sweet setup going.

I'd love to see people's options for things like bike storage, tool/workspace, wheel/tire storage, all of it!

:excited:

Using all your vertical height is huge. I need to take some pictures of my dad's garage, which I'll copy in mine.

He bought cheap bike hoists from HF to get the bikes off the ground, it's a big help. Tires are also on a shelf on the wall. Menard's (a local home improvement type chain) sells a killer wall track system for hanging yard equipment, it's great to get that all off the ground/shelves and on a wall...you'd be surprised by how much you can fit in a small space hanging on the wall.

ALSO, my dad's "workbenches" are these rolling toolbox things with a worktop at bench height. Most of the time, he has them against the wall as a work bench...but they're organized to where if he has a car project or something, he can roll one over to the lift. Makes the toolbox effectively a dual purpose thing, which I've found to be super handy.
I believe it's this:

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

Also, anyone have (or had) a garage with OSB on the walls instead of drywall? Seems like it could be a 5/7 way to finish a garage.

Nice! I would definitely plan on elevated bike, wheel/tire, and anything else I could storage.

Storage, is Edsal shelves, and go vertical.

Also, get some good lighting in there.

First: you need a shed for lawn stuff and longer term storage.

Second, echo everything that's been said, use the vertical space. Workbench on wheels is great for me. Keep shit off the floor as much as practical. If you can afford it, wall mounted cabinets from am old kitchen help with this if you plan to park cars in it.

Sno got a jerb at Blackberry Farm in TN; google it, definitely worth a look.
Zilch’s jerb is 5/7 and letting him work remotely.

Looks like it’s been covered.

The south east move has been in the works for years, we just needed a reason to execute it. It gives us some needed space from family while still being gainfully employed.

We bought a house in Maryville, giving her about a 25 minute commute and a stable paycheck with amble room to grow. We’ve been vacationing in the area 1-2 times a year for the last 7 and have spent a fair amount of time in Knoxville on lots of those trips. There’s not much to not like about it - good weather, great roads, beautiful scenery..

CoL is pretty much identical to here. Slightly lower insurance rates, housing rates pretty much the same, property taxes the same, 0 state income tax, but higher sales tax. Our location has pretty much always been dependent on my job and for once we get to do something for hers.

Bought. I got a gladiator workbench and fit some high quality castor's on it. Makes it mobile and and makes it comfortable working height for our tall asses. Don't be cheap and do 2 fixed and two swivel castor's here, get 4 swivel locking ones. I mounted a vice to it and it's SUPER functional

Will absolutely look into this. I'm :troywax: on the garage and might as well make the interior just as nice.
