Here's mine. Sorry for the panorama shot, but I'd be hard pressed to get it all in. This is a three car attached garage that I had built double-deep. Essentially a six car tandem. A stealth shop in what is a fairly typically medium sized lot subdivision. That way SWMBO got what she wanted-- a neighborhood to live in near stuff, and I got the big shop I wanted. About 1300 square feet with 10' ceilings, porcelain tile floor, TV, fully climate controlled, plumbed, 220, light and bright. A real pleasure to work in, but maybe not grassroots.

Here is what I'm working with...

That nice clean side? Yea, that belongs to the wife. I'm not allowed to touch, but for some reason all the kid stuff gets piled on the race car.

And somewhere back in there is my workbench, aka tool shelf...

So you bought the house with a standard garage, then built it double deep? How difficult was that? I've thought about doing that one day.

We took a standard floorplan from the builder and altered it and had the whole house built from scratch.

However, I had previously had a 3 car detached garage with an existing house that I had expanded out the back to a similar size. It was handy to draw from that experience in designing this one.

That's good to know. I'm thinking about finding a house with an expand-able garage when we buy in the next year or two. Three car garages are unheard of in decent size houses around here.

Finally got things organized enough to fit the Mini inside. The E46 has to chill outside for the foreseeable future, the Challenge car takes up its parking space.

Man I wish I had some pictures... . My current attached garage (800 sq/ft) is so fully of cars, motorcycles, bicycles, etc, that I can hardly move.

I am currently building a 30x40x13 metal building doing all_of_the_work_myself (except the actual slab pour). So I have spent all summer working on it and have 2 walls finished... I am shooting to be done by Halloween.

A little late to the party, but this is my 2-car (or "1 race car") garage. Needs more wall art...

It's a panoramic picture, so it's a little fun-house looking.

My old garage - the walls grew inward with every finished project.

New garage not sorted out yet.

My garage, if the pic will work. I can fit the E34 and the E30, or the E30 and the lemons E30, nose to tail on the right side. It's tight doing that, though. Motorcycle parking is behind the wall behind the E30. The Caprice and the Silverado live outside, and probably will indefinitely since I like having that car-size space in the back to work on things.
