My last garage, actually. (Collection of the old rommate's and my toys.)
:cry:

I'm still working on the current one.

perhaps now you'll understand my theory about: cars belong in the driveway!

Thanks RCK.

I keep most of my stuff, like lawn mower, garden tools, misc junk in that back room, that way I can keep the front clean from clutter. I'd like to get the floor painted/sealed on day.

I got the posters from my dealer. I know the sales manager there pretty well, so he was able to hook me up. I then went and bought the frames and plexy glass to mount them in. This is the only room in the house I'm allowed to hang them in. :rofl:

Sure, come on over!! I'll have to charge you a little more in rent since you "don't throw loud parties"... promise to throw at least one loud party a week and you can move in for free!! :D :thumbup:

Ditto.. yikes! You can't possbily keep it like that all the time, do you? :yikes:

I certainly try to. I've attached three photos that I just took 10 minutes ago of my garage with out moving a single thing (yes, I'm bored right now :D ). I plan to move my wheels & tires to the basement soon. Other then the wheels & tires (under the cargo blankets) and the dirty floor, it's in the same condition.

John,

Yes, I too really like your garage. I love the floor and the lighting. Looks like you have plenty of cabinet space. :thumbup:

What kind of paint did you use for the floor? Does it get slippery when wet? It sure looks like it would.

Thanks, I used www.ucoatit.com for my floor. The basic Ucoatit product and then the UglossAF. It does get slippery when wet, but there are solutions you can discuss with them. Far and away, it is the single most significant thing I've done that allows one to keep the garage clean. It sweeps and mops up beautifully. Your garage looks great, but doing your floor is a must.

This is my garage from my old house. The 10' door was the original barn door and we added the standard garage style door on the left bay.

It is classified as a 3 bay (30x50)barn with the center, left and right bays. There is a basement under the center and right bays and for some reason, not a basement under the left bay.

Our first project was to clear the left bay area. There was a wrokshop of sorts built up on wide pine boards. We ripped it all out and poured (3) 10" thick concrete slabs measuring a total of 10x30. Then we added the door with opener and the project was complete.

The barn could hold several cars and one boat with plenty of room in the basement and the loft for additional storage. Since it was a working farm at one time, it had water and electricity in the barn.

Do I ever miss that barn....

Andy look into either Griots or Rust-Oleum. The nice thing about the Rust-Oleum, the paint chips that give the surface texture.

Kelly BMW. You know, I just now realized that you too are from Columbus. :thumbup:

You must have been reading my mind, because the "paint fleck" texture is exactly what I am looking for. Maybe this spring I will try and get the garage floor done. Wanna help? :D :angel:

I hear you about loving the barn. This is ours at the house in Maine. (An 18th century post&beam 3-bay "English" barn that was originally erected near Thomaston, ME)

Nice barn and dog! Do you still own the property? Looks like the barn is in mint condition.

I only have one barn story - this is because I did not purchase the property from the owner- it was a bank foreclosure:

One day the UPS guy was delivering a package to the house and asked how long we lived there. We told him just under 1 year. He said he would party in the barn many years ago with Slash from the rock band Guns and Roses.

Other than that story, I unfortunately have no history on the barn- wish I did.

Oh fwiw- I used the rustoleum product on the concrete floor- Had great results. Easy to apply and tough as nails.

Looks great! How does the tile hold up to oil, tires, ect?

The tile is more maintenance than concrete. It can be chipped, and scratched (but scratches can be buffed out - the color is solid throughout).

Oil is no problem. It can sit for months, with no damage.

Tires, on the other hand, are an issue. New tires (less than a year or two old) will chemically leave marks on white tile if left parked for hours and hours in one place. The marks can be scrubbed off, or left alone (like I do). No big deal.

Maintenance is nothing more than sweeping the tile (is it smooth, so you can use one of those dust brooms) then waxing (wipe on and let dry) every few months.

It is slippery when wet.

I like it, and would do it again.

Clearly I need a bigger garage. I've just got a standard 2-car garage ... and I've got to find a way to fit my company car (Bonneville), my soon-to-be-delivered Z4, and my motorcycle (BMW R1100R) ... not to mention the regular crap like lawnmower, snowblower, wheelbarrow, and other tools.

Guess I'll just have to move to make room!

I used Rust-oleum. A kit ($50) will do a single car garage. First you need to clean the floor with a citric acid/water solution, which is included as a powder. The coloring is an epoxy, not paint. For best results use a thick pile roller putting it on thick and work in 4'x4' squares. Paint chips are also included and not only give the floor texture, also helps hide dirt.

It's been almost 3 years since I sold my old place. At the time the Rustoleum was holding up.

How long have you had yours down? Any chipping/peeling?

I'm thinking about doing it to the new garage...

I've had it for two summers and have had some come up from hot tires, but it is in areas I didn't put it down thick enough. It took me my third try (3 car garage) to figure out that it needs to go down very thick. If done correctly it is very difficult to get any peeling. We have a Grand Cherokee which usually drips transfer case oil. The floor under it hasn't bubbled or peeled and cleans up with a little Simple Green.

Hey Andy,

Back in the early '70's I used to race until my dad decided
that we were going too fast and he sold all of our bikes.

A couple of years ago I decided to get back into riding.
My son and I have a lot of fun together (when there's no surf).
