I was wondering if anyone else has fixed up their garage like a mechanic garage?

I already have half of the garage drywalled with insulation, and 80% of my workbench complete. Got a nice rolling toolbox, a lot of sears tools, and still need a lot more. Table saw for my woodworking hobby. Im having my electrician coming tomorrow, and i got my lights up ready to get hooked up and a couple of outlets that are going to be put in the walls. I just hope he can pull another 15 amp wire so i can have atleast 20 for a migwelder.

I want to apply concrete sealer on the garage floor, to make it easier to clean up messes. Got my air compressor,sears 30gallon, for my air tools and future paint work. Want to get a parts washer, hydralic presser, sand blasting cabinet, from harbor tools.

Im planning to restore my beetle this year, which my parents said why havn't you already. I will post pictures sometime on how my dad had the garage. Atleast my bicycle was dry from the outdoors. I always disliked working on my car inside the garage, i always did it in the driveway, when it was light out, and i had to do it when it was freezing cold. I just cant wait to finally having a normal car garage, and i hope my dad doesn't ruin it with victoria secret magazines, and coupons which he clips from the sunday newspaper.

Next summer: new garage, finished inside, room for the car and "stuff", maybe even a bathroom so I don't ever have to leave!

the electrician is here right now, hes doing some house work at the moment. He found out that i have two existing lines going to the garage, and im happy about that. Otherwise, my parents didn't really want to have the guy lay out new underground line going to the garage.

Classic motorbooks, has two books on how to design and plan your garage, it just give you some ideas, on workbenches, and floor plans.

Now if my mom will let me put an A/C unit.

2 stall garage, a Coke machine with 1 row of Bud Light, 1 TV-VCR combo, 1 gas forced air furnace, 2 weight machines (I get a lot of excersize moving them around), looking for a recliner (my other-one fell apart), and oh yea, room for my Fiero when I get done using the garage for a wood shop while I do the honey-do things before my son's graduation.

30 x 38 pole building, two stalls with insulated overhead doors, walk-in door on shop side, three slider windows, heating, 100 amp service, getting the concrete floor poured today as I write. I've been dreaming of this for 10 years. Never lived anywhere that could afford the room.

My dad ran a garage from his farm for 20 years. He's retired now but still has all the tools and equipment. His shop is about 1600 sq. feet and has a custom built engine hoist(no cherry picker here), press drill, grinders, acetylene torch, arc welder etc, etc, etc. I still remember the snap-on truck coming to our farm once a month.
I was "helping" my dad fix cars since I was old enough to walk and I was rebuilding engines myself by the time I was 14. I was going to become a journeyman mechanic but modern cars just don't interest me enough to fix them for a living.

On Monday the excavator is gonna come out and level off a place for my NEW 32'X 40' pole barn. The builder says it should be under roof by next Saturday. I'm allready pricing air compressors. I want to learn to do paint and body work. Plus I'll have a great place to do neat things like V6 swaps etc...lol. AND...I allready have a beer fridge.
