The move is almost complete, after spending that last month and half living with my father; We close on our new house in Omaha NE July 5th. I have a 3 car garage with 20ft ceilings to build into my shop. MY wife only wants on stall to park in…I guess I will let her have it.

Any Local jocks want to grab a beer sometime IM me.

20 foot ceilings?! I can see the potential for some killer loft space!

JJohnston, I like the way you think! Never thought of that. There is attic space in the garage, so a second level about 5ft wide with storage and a ladder to get up the attic…

I’m not local, but your space reminds me of the space that Marc Spagnuolo, aka The Wood Whisperer used for his shop. He ended up separating one bay of the garage from the rest of the shop to be used for parking, turning his three bay garage into a one car garage and two bay wood shop. Added benefit is that it helps keep sawdust off the car, and muffles noise if you use the stall closest to the house entrance for the car, which seems the obvious choice to me. He documented the shop setup on his website, Check out the “videos” section, specifically the “shop setup” tag. Good luck with your new shop! It sounds like a really great space to make your own!
