I'm not a huge fan of a garage being simply an over-decorated display case for a car. But that doesn't mean it's not a place that deserves some thought being put into its design and use. My little two-car will never make it into a luxury lifestyle magazine, but it's been worked out as a kind of 'multi-use tool' for the car and other stuff I do.

I did all the work myself, including setting the tile and digging the pit for the lift. The total budget, including the floor, cabinets, benches and lift was less than $3,500. Everything in the place is second-hand, re-purposed or home-made.







It's not any kind of lottery winner's dream, but I think it's a good example of throwing ingenuity and hard work at a problem instead of just money.

You can see the lift in operation in the video Petrolicious did.

This world needs more men like you. Thanks for the great share and its the details, the planning, and the execution of this garage that makes it so special. Very inspiring man. No homo.

Well it's not as pretty as Jack Olsen's but probably a bit more functional. This is my "flood mode" orientation when I pack all my vehicles in it if we get a threating rain and the river may flood out my car port. The side you can't see to the right of the lift is the woodshop side. My work bench is 3 feet deep by 12 feet wide. I do however have vice envy, Jack's got a nice Wilton; mine's a bit smaller - LOL.
