I don't mean just cars...... I've never had a neat and organized garage before. It was always full of crap. Now... It's different, and I love it!

oh.. hands up.. me! me! me!

My shed is like some magical time-space vortex where things go... never to be seen again. If i can open the door (ie, if some pile of stuff hasn't fallen behind it and blocked the entrance again) i'll take a photo. My idea to clear out the shed was to hire a skip, disassemble the entire shed around it's contents and dispose of the lot.. Then, happy me has a clean (and new) shed built on the spot!

hmm what's in mine? In our garage is a 74 beetle currently being restored, my mountain bike, 2 fridges and a freezer, small workshop about 2x3 with tools and JUNK (paper, bits of wire, off cuts) everywhere, pingpong table, car, a shelf full of shit and old basketballs etc, surfboards, fishing gear.

I might take a photo though it is an absolute mess and nobody would really care what's in mine

Mine is full of all the crap that won't fit into the house, plus some tools and it's where one of my cats lives :-)

The barbeque trolley, a couple of folding chairs and a patio umbrella, my old windsurfer and half a dozen sails (hey, I might use them again), all my dad's old tools (the ones we didn't chuck out), push mower, gardening tools, etc. etc.

I'd agree with that but I'd go though things first. enure you have all Packaging/receipts for the stuff your still using and make sure you dont throw away those Family Heirlooms either. If need be get the kids involved as extra pairs of hands. a skip is a good idea just be aware of the anarchy the lunatic in charge of the operation has in store.

http://www.danamania.com/tmp/shed2.jpgIs that an old chook shed or something? looks like it's had chooks in there for years.

I have two Sheds.
One massive one and a smaller one.

the massive one houses the important stuff. like the workshop and vrious vehicles including 3 Motorbikes, a '36 Morris and a '50s Herald (both in differing stages of restoration).

and the smaller newer one was just a bike shed until my brother moved out.
now it's full of his spare stuff which he hasn't kept at his place. It's falling apart though. t's one of those older Stratco cheapies knock together it's actually very dodgy. I'll get drunk when it comes down. and then replace it with some thing much more resilient.

You wish! If you are living in sydney like your location says then you have the wrong number plates for the car on the other hand if you are living in Italy or somewhere in europe then I wouldn't doubt it

Anyone got the old fashioned 1-car garage? I have, it contains 1x Honda Civic, a wardrobe and a small small table.

I don't have a garage :(

I have two 'garden' sheds though. One is for garden equipment and stuff, the other is currently being used for joining metal together via electricity - what I do shouldn't be referred to as welding.

thats awesome

my 'garage' consists of about 30 cars on mechanical lifts..

I'm in an apartment complex.

mine is full of junk that won't fit in the house, and a half finished trainset for a son too old now (maybe not ;) )

the guy who built the house built the garage to fit his car, an Austin (it was the 60s) and my Falcon is too wide :(

I'm actually planning to have a garage sale to declutter then put in decent storage for the rest of the stuff I want to keep.

hehe nice I love recognising members from other forums.

Devil Rolla if you have any interest in car detailing, or their products (they develop their own products, and anything they do bother creating will only be released if it matches or exceeds the best of what is out there already), definitely check them out.

I'd be careful Devil Rolla....that place is dangerous!

Once you start reading, then next thing you know, you're standing in your drive way with a whole bunch of stuff you've brought from FI online, 3 hours after you started "washing" your car. You have an 800 dollar random orbital in your hand, and you've only just finished the exterior and only starting to wax your car now. You haven't even touched the interior or engine bay yet :confused1:

You have been warned.
