Default Vette storage

I decided over a year ago to build a shop for my tools and to have place to put the vettes. I was messing around on Excel one day and put together a floor plan of what I wanted.



I wish I could say that I had the ability to build it myself but I'm not that skilled. I hired a general contractor and broke ground Feb '14.



I'm finally getting to the point that I can use it so I thought I could show some pics. I did do some of the work though, all of the electric and the bathroom and about 1/2 of the sheetrock. I just couldn't do the ceiling.














I made it to drive straight through to the back yard (or allow a breeze through). It didnt turn out exactly like my drawing but most of it is there. And still have quite a bit to do. But, I can finally use it now.

Beautiful! So spacious. So....clean!

I'm imagining it in a few years. Grease stains, hand prints, the inevitable
blood stains and about 100 pounds of old parts scattered around and in the corners.

Nice to see a dream and plans come true! Nice garage!!

Thanks for the pics. Now I know how to redesign my garage. In my dreams! How about a kickin' stereo with surround sound?

I may have him beat just a tad. I am still using the radio I received as a sign up bonus when I graduated from college in 1967 and signed up for my first credit card from Standard Oil Co. It has AM/FM and a shortwave band. I have had to replace the plastic battery holder that broke, but otherwise it still works great.
