That would be nice, just no shed out the back.. although I'm the garage gatekeeper the workshop bay is off limits to everyone and is enough room for me to do my stuff The remaining part of garage can have all the family goodies from sport equipment to kids bikes, scooters you name it but of course in maximum organized fashion. I just put some of my old license plates as swag (not pictured).

Would love to see more of the garage and how it ties into the house if you're willing to share.

The garage ties well with rest of the house. Without attaching exterior pics, this is a custom two story design w/attached garage on a rectangular corner lot. Both interior and exterior feature transitional design elements. Instead of going with aluminum cabinets such as moduline or similar and to avoid an industrial feel, opted to use similar finishes to inside. (Face frame flush inset cabinetry, paint grade shaker style panels w/designer hardware wrapped around 60" tool box and covered w/quartz counter top). Large row of cabinets on the left is also housing water filtration system and air compressor with lines running between floor joists to quick connect in the ceiling that attaches to a reel mounted on the lift. Aluminum slat-wall on remaining walls for maximum use of space/organization.

Pic of garage without the lift before move in.

racks above the garage doors are "saferacks" they are cheap and work like a charm.. i brought them to 3/4" away from the door to maximize their storage capacity since garage door is 8'ft. If you decide to go this route, switch your garage opener to jackshaft configuration so you can run more shelving. I originally wired the ceiling for power racks, this way you can bring items down on a push of a button, but how infrequently i get stuff from the racks it really didnt make sense spending 5K on racks when safe-racks were less than 1K installed.

The inverted shelves on the wall inside are from "ProSlat", i dont think they sell these anymore but i'm sure there are companies out there that sell exact same ones.. they can hold a lot of weight..

I like how your garage door is black on the inside. looks clean than the typical white. I may do this to change things up

Not much in mine. just detailing stuff. my friends garage has every tool I could think of and he's down the street. I do put up an f1 track photo to represent the country of the car on that side. Monza and Nürburgring GP here. Also have a Ryu and Akuma vinyl to kind of represent the yin and yang / daily and weekend.

absolutely stunning sir, very clean and simple, love the stance and widebody. Brother and I had a S13 hatch project with T56/LS1 drift car he ended up selling when moving across country.

thanks! I've had this S13 over the last 10 yrs plus working on it slowly when time allows it more as a hobby, i've been lucky to keep it despite moving many times in between. The car is as clean as it looks. Never really saw much track duty and once in a blue moon its been taken out for cars and coffee. Sadly, California is really not friendly to these types of vehicles, while you can drive around in a flashy exotic all day long with a blaring exhaust without getting pulled over. I would enjoy driving this daily if it wasnt such a hassle with cops! So that I could blare my twin gates with open dumps for the extra screamer effect

To make sure we are back on thread topic, the s13 is pretty much garage wall swag as its always there and people wonder what the heck it is, lol.

Here is a bay shot:

I got a whole lot of tools, which went into my toolbox that I bought, which TOUCHES to wall... So that sort of counts.

Garage List
Nice cars and garages, Cool to see a few older JDM's esp the Nissans... This is my humble small 2car ( work in progress ) garage..
Have some cool old BMW related matchbox cars on the back wall / Some flags / etc.. Nothing crazy.

Some essentials to me for working on cars and hanging out is good tunes and a computer, you always have to look something up and it doubles as a spot
to stream sports / videos etc! Recently picked up 3 good speakers + a subwoofer / receiver from Craigslist for $125.. Next to pickup is a bigger tool box, and a proper work-bench / vice.

Currently im in the middle of remodeling, Just did 6 LED lights to light it up good and cleared out anything thats not for cars ( we got a shed finally ),
Next comes the Epoxy floor and paint on the walls + heat which should transform it a ton.

Heres a few work in progress pics ( alot more to do )

Pic 1 ( lights installed )
pic 2 ( floor getting cleaned and ready for epoxy [ have a pro doing it, not willing to 1/2 ass it )
Pic 3 ( the toys that usually take up the space ) 1992 SR20DET Sentra / 1995 325i w/ many E36 M parts
