Finally a useable shop.

Well sort of.... So I have been in my house for 5 yrs now. It came with a 20x24 shop in the back. Now the original installer of this shop was a full blown idiot. You pull in one side gate headed towards the garage, yet the house is in the way to pull in anything buigger than a motorcycle. I live in a col-de-sac and my house is t6he one at an angle. My lot is square but the house does not sit square. OR I can pull in the other side gate and... well... nothing. No door. So After getting a few qoutes on painting my lemans because I have no "GOOD" place to do it, I decided it was time to make the shop useable. I installed a 8ft garage door in the side. Have half the crap thrown away and can finally park a car inside. The rest I'm donating to a friend and in 5 more days they will pick it up. I am super excited to finally have a useful shop/man cave/hideout. WOO freakin HOO!!!!!

Garage
Awesome. Funny they put the 2 car garage door and couldn't get anything into it. You fixed it. I want a shop like that built in my backyard, just have to talk to the bank. I'm worried about access as my yard is tight, but nothing like yours.

Burning rubber since 1982!!
My photobucket, lots of dif car pics.

When I first got that score board I was screwing around with it. Had it on and a score put up. I set the timer and it was counting down. I stopped paying attention after a few minutes and was doing something else. Scared the flippin crap out of me when the BUZZER went off. Talk about loud in that little metal building.
