For the last 9 years of my life I have lived in a townhouse where the only place to work on projects was at my desk in my office, or on the dining room table. Needless to say it was "difficult" to work on my junk.

Anyway, I know it's nothing real special, but in March we bought a house with a 2 car (Yeah right, like I'm gonna waste that space on a car) garage. Now that we're somewhat moved in I have been spending some time on building it up. Did the floor in epoxy shield, added some lighting, etc etc. I also enlarged the access to the attic and sheeted the floor of the attic over the garage for 350 sq.ft. of storage. I have a small antenna farm in the attic over the rest of the house.

So the 16' x 3' workbench is on the south wall. 10' x 2' shelves on the west wall which still need to be organized a little better. And finally bike hooks, airplane rack, and lawn/garden equipment all hanging on the north wall. The overhead door is the east wall.

There is still some moving debris in the middle of the garage, that will need to get put away. Then I plan to build a 10' x 4' table on large casters using similar construction as the workbench.

So as far as I'm concerned this is about the only room in the house that I need.
