Garages of golfmk7.com: picture thread

I searched, didn't see a thread like it. I thought it would be fun if we all showed pics of where we wrench, keep our cars and other toys.
Clean, messy, small, or large.

And go!

Nice idea.

I've spent the past 2 years fixing up my little 18x20 detached as a first time homeowner. It started out pretty junky from the previous owners like this (sans the LED shop lights -- I put those in ):





Here it is so far today:







An older pic but you get the idea:



As you can see I'm going for the 'clean' approach

I don't do any heavy duty wrenching. Just occasional parts installs, standard maintenance stuff, and some light woodworking (mostly of the home improvement variety).

Looking forward to see others' spaces.

Before I bought the Gti and was perfectly happy with my Honda Element parked in the driveway, after having my Mk1 Gti stolen (years ago) never to be recovered, I knew I wasn't leaving my Mk7.5 in the driveway; even if I'm in a much nicer neighborhood now.

My hideout:





But then I bought the Gti and needed to find room to squeeze it in too...It's a little tight.





Too keep me from running into my bike:

GD some of you have a couch, which is bigger than the couch INSIDE my house, in your garage. Now I'm depressed.

^Lol I found that couch at the end of someone's driveway just this last Sunday. It's real leather and in 'great' condition for garage seating.

Free.99 is the best price!

What is the square footage of your garage? Length and width? It looks great!
