Looking for inspiration, I want to make my garage a sanctuary to work on the Forester and divert my thoughts.

Planning flooring, better lighting, cabinets, roof mounted extension cord, gas heater, etc.

sorry, mine wouldn't cut it. Only have a one car garage so the Forrie sits outside. The best thing in there is the refrigerator....highly recommended!

^^ ditto!!! LOL!!!

No can do! MY03 & my son's 95 Neon Sport park outside! 1/2 of garage has been made into an office & the other side is usable as a garage, but instead has an unused treadmill & seems to collect stuff that is coming in or going out of the house...

Nothing fancy here, but there's plenty of room for all 3 cars (single door is to the left) and all the stuff that's out there...3 sets of wheels/tires, snowblower, motorcycle, several bicycles, treadmill, storage boxes along one wall, etc. Even with all that, there's plenty of room to walk around the cars and work on them with the doors down. Temp ranges from 45F in the winter to 65F in the summer, so no real need for a heater. I may install some better lighting at some point, but I usually use a drop light anyway, so it hasn't been an issue. I also may put some sort of finish on the floor, to make cleanup easier.

My garage is a mess right now, that typically happens over the winter. But we were able to clean out enough crap to make my two car garage a three car because it's double deep on one side :)

Here's a few shots of mine. I havn't changed it too much organizational-wise since I've just got the house about a year ago. I can show you where my Subaru memorabeerlia's are at tho!

I've got to stop looking at this post! I had plans for a garage addition, but I put it on hold. When I started pricing it out, it was almost cheaper to build another house! I'm going to to have to start thinking about this again!:)...

Here's what I built a few years back. I took an existing IKEA shelf I had and scaled it up. I used heavy duty nuts and bolts to make it industrial grade strong. This shelf unit is about 10 feet high and can easily hold several hundred pounds. I store all my tires/wheels during the race season . Each shelf is more than strong enough to support my body weight.











The only shot I have of it at the new house

Nice this is more along the lines of what I was looking for.
