£70k is a figure that sticks in my mind.

Doesn't Zod have one of these?

If that price is correct, yes they are very, very cool but very, very expensive. 70k!

I really do not believe it could be that much, I would guess half of that

Often cheaper to move wink
Not sure I'd want a car in a hole in the ground TBH, you'd also need 24hr power on for water pumps and air/sunken gas dispersal. The look neat working though, very Joe 90.

Couple of mine showing before and after (well,still in progress really). Now that i've sold the 205, there's more space to spread out, and get round to setting up the home gym. But the bike means it's still a PH garage at heart!

When we moved in:


Painted walls and floor about 2 weeks later. Took about a week!


Fast forward 4 years and once the pug had gone, it looked a bit empty and unloved. Plenty of oil and crap on the floor but the paint was in good nick, but not nice to work on.


Rearranged the workspace, moving the tool drawers under the bench, and treated myself to a proper toolboard.


Then some flooring from Ecotile. Great quality, easy to fit and wasn't too expensive.


Finally, how it currently stands now. I've put my bike up on the wall to help with the floor space, setup the home gym, and can get the 1200GS in easy.


Left to do now is to give the walls a fresh coat of paint, put in some heating and maybe cover over the joists with some white chipboard to help reflect the light a bit more. Oh, and put another lock on the door just in case!

Hey there, Pistonheads. Here's an example of a small garage from the United States. I think it's a good example of what can be done with a modest budget -- and a lot of time. I did all of it myself, from the sliding-door cabinets up top to the ceramic tile down below. My shoulders still remember digging out the hole for the hydraulic lift.

Pretty much everything in the place is second-hand, repurposed or home-made.









Benches fold down from the wall:







It looks nice cleaned up, but it's a working garage:



And it's got a video, too.

And there's about a hundred pages of documentation on it all at this link.

The car is a 1972 Porsche 911, fitted up (Frankenstein-style) with components from different eras of the model. Lots of information on it here.

Welcome to Pistonheads. I was in your build pages on Garage Journal not an hour ago, before I swung by here. You have the perfect example of how to make the very best of a medium sized garage. Mine is about a metre bigger than yours, but I'll be very happy if I can get it anywhere near as organised and condensed as yours.

I'm Morrisman over on Garage journal, building the garage in the Philippines. biggrin
