My only requirement when we bought our house last year was at least a 3 car garage and room for a future detached.

I wish it was neater! I am making progress at decluttering but...
Luckily the weather had been decent since I had to re spray part of the top late last night. assembled the top frame tonight.. Had to throw a sheet on to see what it would look like finally..
View is much better now then when I bought it.
Running out of room real quick
Car is looking very nice! What part of the Buckeye State are you in? Joe
Thanks!! Coshocton ohio.. About hour and half east of Columbus on us36
Nice area! I go by the I-77 Coshocton exit on my way to Ohio's Amish Country (Sugarcreek, Dover, Berlin, etc). Was up there a couple weeks ago.
I am just south of sugarcreek.. About 15mins straight south on state route 93.. I work for the phone company in the Baltic, sugarcreek area.
More then welcome to stop in if your around..
Its tight but its better than no garage at all
Not the best pic. JW
I'm South of there near Cincinnati. Joe
Thanks! I'll keep your info for our trip later this fall. We usually visit OAC twice a year and I would love to drop by next time!
To me, the personification of a working mans garage is "organized clutter". To the outsider, it's a wreck, to those who know what they're looking at.... it's heaven in a small space. Those of us who work during the day, do our work in the evenings. Sometimes into the wee hours of morning. And when a great idea hits, it can't wait until the next day. It's part of the sickness we don't plan to cure.
After completing the task, we cut the lights out and wander inside to slumber. You kept the lights on and captured the moment. Thank you.
After the 5 speed install , with the headers and glass packs
