I don’t have a garage to work in and it’s awful but I make do.

I keep looking at garages on Youtube for inspiration and to cool my cravings but some are well, erm, shite.

Take this video on ‘4 Of My Dream Garages’.

1, @ 0:44. Looks okay at first, though single garage doors aren’t my thing. It’s a few small one and two car garages connected with nothing about them.

2, @ 5:22. First look, wow. Nice large space with well arranged tool cabinets. Needs more lighting and a scissor lift. Would change the three single doors for two wide doors.

3, @ 9:52. Nice garage though essentially a warehouse for stuff the guy sells but nice flooring, floor lift, nice cabinets, polishers and detailing stuff on the shelves. His home garage has a nice detailing section but isn’t big enough to put a car in (it’s 40' by 15') and outside covered wash area.

4, @ 16:42. Very large garage space, two lifts in the corners. Nothing else has been done to it (non evening cleaning) and looks like a warzone.

My dream garage would have to have a large space with lighting area and a mezzanine to look down from for chilling on down time.

If the space was very large, maybe a roof suspended office area.

That would be heaven. Looking down on the cars.

If something much smaller, maybe a shared use.

Make the car area 1.5 times as big each way.
