BTW: My Lista cabinets were from motorheadextraordinaire.com 'junkyard' specials. Scratch and dent or returned units. I think I found one slight scratch between all three of them. About 50% savings. Great people to work with.

Here's my modest one-car garage. I'm a renter, so I can't really 'dig in' so to speak (well...literally speaking, in the case of the OP). I had some retail grade slatwall with laminate coating and aluminum strengthening channels that really dress things up and enable me to arrange the tools I need on the wall, out of the way, while working on projects. I have enough storage to put everything away for a cleaner look when the job is done.

Workbench is by Gladiator Garage Works, Craftsman tool chests, metal wire shelving is Metro, which holds a TON of weight and all my shelves are on casters. Totally sweet.

Main bay is 3 car plus work area. Have the heater, detailing racks, drains in the floor, indoor water, etc. car washing inside in the winter sucks but once Ina while if need be.

I bought the unit earlier on this year. I have a welder, compressor, engine cranes, tool chests etc. but need to get them arranged!

Here are some older pics.
Really nice looking setup you have there! What kind of a lift is that? looks likes its portable / not permanently attached to the floor?

Benches fold down from the wall:







It looks nice cleaned up, but it's a working garage:



If you want to see a bench-by-bench tour of the place, it's got a website at:

And there's a video where you get to see the lift in use:

And very occasionally my little E90 gets to stay there:

I WANT THIS GARAGE!!!!

Thank you! It is a dannmar maxjax and it is portable. I figured I could bring it with me wherever I may move. I have nothing but positive experience with it.

Is that a Server in the back behind the car? What's that for?

You have an HP Blackbird and Audioengine A5's in the garage?
