I’m yet to collect the new phase 1 from the bodyshop (about two weeks away), so I thought that I would get to work in creating a new home for the old girl...

Before and after below...

Before and after of mine. Tbf, the before was before we moved in 3 years ago. Could do with another coat of floor paint as I stupidly painted the floor before the walls. Think I'll get some proper epoxy resin stuff in the summer though.

Nice work looks great, always love seeing a spruced up garage space.

I started mine a couple of years ago and added something of the nicer bits more recently and have previously bored CS with my posts 😂 but I do enjoy the space with

- Better Lighting
- Floor Tiles
- Tool Chests/ Workbench/Storage
- CTEK Charger
- Roller Doors
- More F1 Memorabilia on the wall

I can only assume they have a TARDIS in their back gardens which they throw everything in.

Or, they don't have a wife that hoards shite and a bike hobby/ kids 🤣🤣🤣.
I haven't even got room for a brewery setup yet. I need to move house.

What do you guys do with all of the shite that's in before?

I would never fit a car in my garage with what's in there.

First time I’ve used it. It’s separate from the house. The garage door was off when we bought the gaff!

Looks cracking that. I’ve got no problem with being house proud.

I know right, it's like a f**king royal marines obstacle course getting to the back of my garage.

Hahaha. I’m sure it will end up that way. We’ve got a shed and another garage. This one didn’t have a door on until yesterday.

That wheelbarrow looks new, did you steal that too?😂
No, I bought it, but I left the entry gate open one night and some light fingered little prick nicked it and used to to carry off some booze he nicked from my neighbours garden. found it on my CCTV after enraged searching for the wheelbarrow about a week later.

Surprisingly decent sized single. Never had power and looking to move this year so unlikely to bother now. New gaff will have either a double or enough room for a big shed to put anything non-car related shite away from the motor.

With a third car potentially joining the drive, and having read this thread, I've spent the evening rearranging the entire garage to see if I can get the Clio to fit.

Now it looks like a bombs gone off, and my back is f**ked, but all the big stuff is at the back now (shelves and workbench). Few more hours tidying up the remaining crap and hopefully it'll fit...

Living in London I spent ages trying to find a flat with a garage big enough and empty enough to keep the Clio in.

The floor needs a tidy up, and there's a load of the landlords crap in the right of this frame. They put a new door on for me when I moved in and haven't had the stones to ask for a new floor as well. Would love to have space for a proper workbench and for access down both sides of the car without having to wheel it outside the garage first.

It's tight front and rear, and the other side out of shot has about the same amount of space, it's a mirrors in job to get the thing backed in.

Was lucky enough to also have a driveway which the Audi lives on. The garage is around the back accessed by an alleyway, if I was in a posh enough area I'd call it a mews lol. On the right of it there is a spot for the incoming trailer.

Did mine last year at start of lockdown, as I needed to put the civic in but also make it as much of a mancave as poss.

Cleaned, etched and epoxy painted the floor. Painted the walls with boggo white emulsion - was a PITA. New shelves and all that jazz. Some ebaytastic LED strips and remote control LED bulb.

Limited though as it's a single integral garage - so no roof space and fairly narrow. Does the job fine though for all my stuff, the car, bike and 2 chairs for sitting off!

Next (planned) car is 25 cm shorter too, so that's a bonus! :)

Would like to get a roller shutter fitted as well, as that frees up a lot more ceiling storage space.

Just about enough space to work on the car still. Loads of work crap and spares means it’s always a mess. One day I’ll spend a weekend sorting it!

Be perfect if the roof was about another metre higher so I could have a proper ramp.

And another few metres bigger each way obviously!

My 2 garage spaces, pretty lucky to have them, although I don’t have power/light in them so can be a pita running extension leads out. Shame their is a wall down the middle of them, one day I’ll ask if I can knock it down.
