    Is that a good thing or a bad thing? :P

  • It's all good :-) The husband of the family that owned it built motorbikes in one and 'wood stuff' in the other.

    Loving that sound system btw ;-)

    Awesome - you can never have too many sheds :D

    It's an old Panasonic modular system we inherited. Great sound and it's beautiful! Built properly like all old stuff.

    I think you could fit most of my flat in there!

    My workshop doubles as my kitchen, or is it the other way round?

    I'll have to do a lot of tidying before even considering taking a picture of my garage.

  • I'm jealous of all your spaces! I've got one garage for everything, and it's got too many dead fridges in it.
  • Here's mine. It's a little snug, but still plenty of room to get things done!

    How did you get those bikes to mysteriously hold themselves up?

    Magic :P

    Nah, it's metal brackets that you push the tyres into ;)

    For years I had 2 garages full of TVR and racing car plus spares, and a house full of bikes. When I sold the cars I emptied the house of bikes and I sorted the garage out so I can work in there. As I'm moving in 3 months I haven't made it into a man-cave, but my next garage will be awesome!!!

    The key indredient to a good garage seeme to be storage and lighting. And music.

    Whoah! That's a bit freaky. Our garages appear to have been designed by the same architect. And I think I might have the same TV as well.

    But it is a LOT more messy...

    You need to drill into the photo and then go via the view all sizes and copy the shortcut above each picture.

    Why on earth would you keep a car in a garage? :P

    When your car is worth more than your bikes, but this is breaking some rule or other. Mine isn't and I love my bikes much more which is why two them are currently residing in the dining room.
