Some of you already know I have recently moved. I thought I would share a few pics of my garage. It's 40'x96'. The shop takes up almost half, and the rest is storage area.

This picture is taken from inside the overhead door visible in the first picture. The three doors in the picture are office, parts room, and bathroom. There is a built in work bench to the right.

That is quite nice. You will enjoy it I am sure.

I use to think my 32'X40' shop was big but several on here have built shops that dwarf it. I am gonna have to talk to momma.

Thanks guys.

I used to do most of my work at my dad's shop. He moved away and I've been without a shop for four years. I really feel blessed to have a place like this now. It's more than I could have asked for.

Now it's time to start buying equipment.:D

The Clock on the wall says it's quarter to 6 and judging by the sun the "Home of Bolen" sign must be on the west side!!:D

The time to buy more equipment is always now!!:D :D

Great shop!! What did the previous owner use it for? Looks like he ran a repair shop there. What's with the old truck out front?

Holy Cow, That’s NICE
From the headroom above the pick-up it even looks
like you could put a lift in there. Bathroom, Partsroom, Office
and enough shop to work on a locomotive, it doesn’t get much
better than that. Congratulations on a great find.

The previous owner did a lot of work for most of the town from what I understand. It was mostly just because he was too nice to say no. The house is pretty nice too, although I don't spend much time in it. It's built into a hill, three sides are underground and the south side is the only side exposed. The truck was an old International that had been cut in half. That's now been hauled away.

Sure. Here it is. I need to replace the siding and install gutters on the south side. With three of the walls being underground, it's easy on the heating and cooling bills. The sun does most of the heating for us since the front of the house faces south.

This is the north side. The garage is between the house and the road, so you can barely even see it when driving by.

Very nice shop its odd the way the house is set in the ground. I don't know if i could live without being able to look out windows. It would drive me nuts not being able to look out to the back yard. But you have no problem getting on the roof for anything.:D

Great House!!! I live entirely in the basement of our restaurant, and once you get used to it, it's not a problem not having windows. You just make sure to get some natural light outside each day.

Now, if i was a lawyer, or an insurance guy, I'd tell you to put a fence up at the edge of the roof.

There was a case here this year where a 13 yr old kid went on a roof and fell through to a loading dock,doing brain damage. The settlement was $1.25 million. I'd hate to see some kid chase a ball onto your roof and fall off it.
