Guys

I have two garages, the one at home is just for parking the car I want to use that week. I live 5 miles from my business and have two bays in an industril building that are used to store and restore cars.
workshop

Two bays of 700 sq ft each, one is the workshop and the other just for storing cars and tires&quot;
The floor is two part epoxy from Home depot, applied in Jan 2014 along with baseboards and a repaint on the walls. The colors are Sunoco Blue and yellow for the hoist and Lemans/Gulf colors on trim.

My cabinets are all rollers do thay can be moved closer to the car, Shelving is ezrect in different configurations

The hoist is a Hoffman screwjack style with 8000 lb capacity
Other tools are Sandblast cabinet, Homemade paint booth from a file cabinet,Full air throughout shop, heater. Compressor is a Campbell Hausfield dual phase, 5 HP with 80 gallon tank.
The lighting above the rolling tool cabinets are LED strips.
The wood cabinets have bben position well above the floor for storing latge bulky items. By moving the roller cabinets I can store two cars side by side.

Paul,

Is that a wine cooler mixed in with the cabinets?? If so, great idea. I'd never leave the garage.

Very nice set up you have.

That is a wine cooler and a full size fridge, we have no basement in our house so the wine cooler is in the garage along with the overflow fridge.
